Default Don Cheadle joins IRON MAN 2!!!

Don Cheadle is stepping in to replace Terrence Howard in "Iron Man 2," Marvel Studios' sequel to its summer blockbuster.

In the movie, Howard played Jim Rhodes, Tony Stark/Iron Man's best friend and future armor-clad hero War Machine. One scene featured Howard looking at a silver suit of armor and saying "Next time," a line that caused great delight for fans.

But there will be no next time for Howard.

Marvel had no comment, but sources close to the deal said negotiations with Howard fell through over financial differences, among other reasons. Marvel, which had wanted to work with Cheadle, then decided to take the role in another direction and approached the actor, who is shooting Antoine Fuqua's "Brooklyn's Finest" with Richard Gere and Ethan Hawke.

Rhodes is expected to play a larger part in the sequel, which is rumored to go beyond high-tech villains. Justin Theroux is writing the screenplay.

Jon Favreau is returning as director, and Robert Downey Jr. is expected back as billionaire industrialist Stark/Iron Man. Gwyneth Paltrow also is expected to be back as Stark's assistant, Pepper Potts.

Cheadle, repped by UTA, most recently starred in "Traitor," a thriller on which he was also a producer. He will next be seen in DreamWorks' "Hotel for Dogs."

Cheadle was not good in this film. Howard would have been a lot better. The tone of Cheadle's performance felt off. I also think Howard looked the part more. Howard could have been the next denzel if not for the lies of his girlfriend.

Cheadle is a far better actor. His skin tone may be darker than comic book Rhodey/Terrence Howard, but that is no reason to say he made a worse War Machine.

I think Cheadle did as good a job as Howard, if not better.

I prefer Cheadle. He's more believable as a military type guy than softy Howard. Plus he seems to be helluva lot easier to work with from a studio managerial standpoint.

Most anticipated TV shows of Fall 2015: Jessica Jones Season 1, Agents of Shield Season 3, Flash Season 2, iZombie Season 2, Blind Spot Season 1, Arrow Season 4, Supergirl Season 1

Terrance Howard just went on record saying why he didn't reprise his role. Saying they wanted to pay him 1/8 of what he got in Iron man. The interview is on yahoo.

Don't quit. Suffer now and live the rest of your life as a champion.
