Neither do I...I guess I'm not geek enough to know much about Iron Man.

A little off topic, but...An interview excerpt with Howard that cracks me up...

Quote:
ELLE: What one item could you find in a woman's house that would prove that you weren't compatible?
TH: Toilet paper—and no baby wipes—in her bathroom.
ELLE: Wait. I don't think I understand.
TH: If they're using dry paper, they aren't washing all of themselves. It's just unclean. So if I go inside a woman's house and see the toilet paper there, I'll explain this. And if she doesn't make the adjustment to baby wipes, I'll know she's not completely clean.

"Next time baby"

MARVEL DISCLAIMER pops up on screen

Announcer- by next time this means a contractual obligation to appear in any future marvel features and stipulates that Mr Howard will receive a specified amount of money for his contributions to Marvel. Failure to do so will result is breach of contract and penalty under California acting law paragraph 6 page 10.

C.) Maybe Howard was asking for too much. Fact is we don't know.

So maybe everyone should calm down and quit *****ing about Marvel because, the fact is, they brought us some great movies last summer, and are doing the Avengers and combing the universes, which I thought was what most fans wanted.
A) Considering how much he made the studio, is it really that unreasonable for him to ask for a raise?

B) Um...no. A majority of sequels have a 3 year span inbetween. And guess what? The sequels that DID have only 2 year spans turned out to be garbage. Check out the F4 franchise and the early Batman series.

C) They tried to lowball Faverau, they screwed with Edward Norton and they are now rumored to be playing cheap with Howard.

Sorry, but I still feel Marvel is getting full of themselves very early in the game. Sue me.

I could care less if they replace Howard, he's not Rhodes at all. I'll also say that Cheadle doesn't seem like Rhodes either, we'll have to wait and see. What matters is that they bring back the main actor that carried the movie anyways and that's what's happening. You guys that are bitcching and moaning about this, boo hoo. Get over it and stop your pouting.

Not knowing any of the real facts but casting aspersions is NOT being full of yourself? Too bad you really can't sue someone for being flat out stupid.

I'm actually impressed by the fan reaction, and glad to see as much support for Don Cheadle, even though I feel almost all of us wishes that Howard had stuck with the deal. This is what happens when actors try to bite off more than they can chew.

Cheadle will do fine, just as good a job as Howard did in the first one.

So you replace one actor who wasn't quite right for the role...with another who is even less suited for it?

Not really. His Rhodey was a movie creation. He was nothing like the comic book character, anyway.

Well this sucks. I like Cheadle but, like a lot of you are saying, I hate when they mess up continuity. And plus I was looking froward to what Howard was going to do with the role. Oh well, hope it still works.

And I agree with a post from before, is this is happening I highly doubt Ed Norton will be back for Avengers.

Im way more inclined to believe that Marvel tried to lowball Howard than Howard overpricing himself.

I mean have you guys seen some of the low budget movies he's done even after Hustle and Flow?

I hope these hiccups are not indicative of (or do not evolve into) larger problems with the film.
This largely sums up my feelings on this as well. Marvel's done some alarming things in the way they have approached this film and their business in general lately. I hope it's not indicative of a problem with a bit too much greed on their parts. It sounds like Howard tried to strongarm the negotiations, thinking that he was important enough to the production to do so, though, and got put on his ass for his troubles. In that respect, I can see both sides of the story; actor wants more for his contribution, studio doesn't want to be in a situation where an actor is calling his own shots. Neither side is right or wrong, that's just business. However, there were some things about Howard that bugged the living crap out of me in the first film, primarily how whiny his voice was. Tell me that, towards the end of the film when he races into Stark's house and starts to go down the stairs into his workship yelling "Tony! Tony!" in the whiniest, girly-man voice imaginable you didn't get the urge to push him down the stairs. Cheadle looks quite a bit different from Howard, who more closely resembles Rhoadey, so it's a bit of an odd substitution but I have absolutely no doubt about Cheadle's chops to handle the part and make it something special. So, this change-up is a bit of a wash to me. I'm more concerned about the short production time and turnaround for this thing; Favreau's got his hands full, that's for sure.

BIG MISTAKE. I hate re-casting characters especially in a franchise. If they can't keep the actor attached to the character then write the character off. Re-casting sucks.

James Rhodes has gotten facial surgery now, I guess. lol

He looks like the late 70s early 80s version of Rhodey in this pic from "Talk to Me" But with a funky cool 70s mustache.

I agree with Jag, I'm more concerned about the fact that this movie is obviously being rushed to it's 2010 date then recasting the slightly annoying Howard.

Let us see things from a different point of view. Marvel is a fledgling Movie studio, they've had one hit and one semi-failure. They are far from successful and for us to judge their business practices is ludicrous.

I don't think that anybody should care if the movie is good and he does well in the role.

I don't see how racism figures into this???

i dont get why people call TIH a failure... it made slightly more then HULK which money wise did decently, story wise and expectation wise it failed. TIH just simply wasn't a hit, but it was a good hulk film, with good actors. People imo just don't care much for hulk... and HULK effected TIH's turnout. hopefully DVD sales will be decent

Don Cheadle is a great actor, but I hate it when they change actors for parts between sequels (yes, even in the case of Katie Holmes/ Maggie Gyllenhaal).
