I can see how people have grown attach to him, plus continuity between films is nice, but Downey's performance in Iron Man was the only spectacular performance that I couldn't do without everyone else I don't really care if there replace or not That includes Samuel

The only problem that I have here is that Don Cheadle is actually shorter than RDJ.

RDJ isn't technically short, but he looks short on-screen. To have a shorter Jim Rhodes might be a little strange.

Cheadle has a pretty small frame too. I think it'd be great if Don Cheadle managed to gain 15 extra pounds of muscle for the movie by the time shooting starts.

Well I thought Jeff Bridges complimented Robert Downey Jr. very well. Both were highlights of the movie for me. Obviously Bridges' character is dead but I'm just pointing out his performance as well is all.

Well maybe they'll take advantage and actually make RDJ look taller as a result. Make him appear 6'2 or so instead of just having two short dudes running around tall people.

I kinda wish they would replace "Samuel"

Also, Don Cheadle freaks me out.

Continuity is nice.

In the very tiny role he was in I thought that Jackson was awesome. As for the rest of the cast, I don't like Paltrow but I really liked her in Iron Man, (which is a surprise to me) she and RDJ had good chemistry IMHO so I want her to stay on board even though I think that she becomes a terrible actress when she has to interact with special effects.

What freaks you out about Cheadle Knight?

Howard was fine in Iron Man, nothing special.

I'm sure the casting of Cheadle will be like the casting of Robert Downey Jr

Completely agree.

1. Jackson was completely bad*** in the tiny cameo, but I'm apprehensive about his portrayal when his role is expanded.

2. Hated Paltrow until I saw her in IM. Surprisingly funny & had great chemistry with Downey. But, the final battle, when she's yelling into her Bluetooth...awful, awful acting.

This Don Cheadle thing is surprising, but I think it will work out completely fine. Howard was good, but I'd take Cheadle over him any day.

That bluetooth scene is indded very horrific.

I too am a little apprehensive about how he would perform in a Nick Fury/Shield movie.
