    Cheadle replaces Howard in "Iron Man" sequel By Borys Kit
    Tue Oct 14, 2:13 AM ET



    In a surprise move, Don Cheadle will replace Terrence Howard as Robert Downey Jr's best friend in "Iron Man 2," the sequel to the superhero saga.

    In the Marvel Studios summer smash, Howard played Jim Rhodes, Tony Stark/Iron Man's 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.

    The Rhodes character 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 Downey is expected back as billionaire industrialist Stark/Iron Man. Gwyneth Paltrow also is expected to be back as Stark's assistant, Pepper Potts. "Iron Man 2" is scheduled for release on May 7, 2010;

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

    Gwyneth Paltrow as Pepper = :wackit:
    In all honesty, Howard didn't add that much to the movie, although he was decent in the scenes he was in. Don Cheadle is the better actor in every way, and with a bigger role to play i'm sure he'll do quite fine.

    In for Tony getting drunk and fucking some hot bitches.

    i think cheadle is a good actor but ide like to see rhody a little buff not a skinny ass dude. I though downeys build was perfect for tony stark and while i thought howard was a bit little he never seemed scrawney. i suppose its better than having vin deasil playing war machine.

    I think that Howard was too... prissy, I guess. Rhodes has always seemed to me, to be more rugged and tough. Not a prissy Airman.

    He wasn't prissy. He was very straightforward and hated Stark's lack of responsibility.

    He was mad that Stark didn't show up to things on time, and that he was childish. Other than being upset with Stark, the character did act like the airman he was suppose to be.

    I didn't particularly like Howard or dislike him (except for his gay voice). But I've never thought much of Cheadle.
