Sounds like Howard played with fire and got burned. I hope it is worth it because it seems like a terrible career move.
His financial plan obviously didn't work for him here. Probably wanted too much money for playing a role in IM, where he didn't do anything of importance in actuality. This is really no big loss. He had one cool line, stood around while Stark punked him, and pressed a button during the climax.

Really deserved a pay raise for all that

Don Cheadle as Rhodey? What the hell?

I don't hate the guy, I've seen enough Movies with him in it and thought he was good, but he just isn't Jim Rhodes. Resume negotiations, damn it Marvel!

I'm wondering..

If not Howard and not Cheadle, who else would've been good/better for the role?

I'm fine with him as Rhodes. Whether or not he was the best choice I'll wait til after IM2 to determine.

I just hope the character actually DOES stuff this time. Rhodey was mostly useless in IM.

I mean have you guys seen some of the low budget movies he's done even after Hustle and Flow?
this makes a little more sense.

and it has more weight to it, considering how they tried to lowball favreau

The news makes me terribly sad, and happy too.
Sad = Terrence Howard was amazing as Rhodes.
Happy = Don Cheadle is the ****ing man.

Sure it will Last time I checked Iron Man is the RDJ show.

Recasting totally killed TDK at the boxoffice.

Why do people keep saying this? It's called NEGOTIATING. When a movie makes this much money, both sides are going to posture. It seems to me that Marvel treated Favreau great. They gave him complete support and freedom and they even bought him a new high end sports car as a thank you gift and delivered it to him opening weekend after the box office exploded. Favreau was never in any real danger of being excluded. He certainly made a great film. So, everyone benefited.

It's clear Howard wanted Downey money for committing to sequels and wouldn't budge. (See post movie release interviews) I'm sure this was brewing and Marvel simply chose to move on. Howard played chicken with the wrong people. Good for Marvel!

Right on, this is RDJ's baby not Howards. RDJ was a major reason this movie was liked by many.

Cheadle is a more than adequate replacement, he's a great actor just hella bad with accents which thankfully won't come into play with IM.

Wow Howard must have really made somebody at Marvel mad at him. Just a few months ago he was talking as if he was going to be around for 2 more Iron Man movies and then maybe a War Machine movie. He didn't just burn his bridges with Marvel, he frickin nuked the suckers.

why the heck didn't they lock down the principle actors for the sequels like the spider-man actors.
The actors were all signed to multi-picture deals, just goes to show you those contracts aren't worth the paper they are written on.

Reminds me of that episode of "Fresh Prince" when a new actress is brought in to play Will Smith's mom. Will Smith in the episode, upon seeing her for the first time, says something to the effect of, "did you lose weight?"

And Cheadle WAS in Fresh Prince. It all makes sense now!

OMG, somone is saying something bad about Marvel, AHHH!!!!! You like to attack others for claiming they don't know what they are talking about, but how about you get YOUR facts straight. Paramount presented that car to Favreau, NOT Marvel!

Quote:
Mr. Favreau also described how a few nights back, he had dinner with Iron Man star Robert Downey Jr. at Mr. Chow’s in Beverly Hills to celebrate their movie’s domination of the weekend’s box office. When the director emerged, he gave his ticket to the valet, who promptly returned with a top-of-the-line, brand-new Mercedes.

“That’s not my car,” Mr. Favreau said.

“Yes, it is,” replied the valet.

“No, it’s not. I drive a Cadillac.”

“This is your car, Mr. Favreau.”

The director and the valet kept at this line of conversation for some time until Mr. Favreau accepted the new ride—a gift, as it turned out, from the overlords over at Paramount.

I have mixed feelings here. On the one hand, I didn't think Howard was a good fit for Rhodey, visually speaking, that is. (Not that Cheadle is spot-on, either.) On the other, I hate when they change up like this. Thus far, only the Spider-Man movies have kept their casts consistent throughout.

Howard did a good job with what the script called for, but he wasn't comic Rhodey. IMHO, when an actor IS the character, it's a ripped from the pages feel in look and personality (ex. JK Simmons as JJ). Howard was good, but IMHO, he wasn't a definitive Rhodey by any stretch.

It's basically Point Break with terrorism instead of bank robbing. Saïd Taghmaoui is really good as the terrorist Cheadle befreinds, and the chemistry between them is very good. Definitely worth a rental, IMHO.
