Terrance Howard replaced by Don Cheadle in Iron Man 2

Terrance Howard, who was pretty perfectly cast as James Rhodes in Iron Man, has been replaced in the sequel due to financial negotiations.  “Marvel had no comment, but sources close to the deal said negotiations with Howard fell through over financial differences, among other reasons,” the report said.  Don’t be surprised if this is just a negotiating tactic by Marvel to drive Howard’s price down.  However if this is true, as weird as that would be, especially with Rhodes expected to have a larger role possibly as War Machine, Cheadle is the man.  Much more so than Terrance Howard ever could be.  Surprised by this news, but not the least bit sad.  At least they got a great actor to replace Howard and not someone like Ludicrous or someone.  [Hollywood Reporter]
