Iron Man Sequel Cast

October 19, 2008

The highly anticipated sequel to this summer’s hit, Iron Man, has had some casting problems with Terrence Howard, who portrayed Rhodey.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Howard is no longer part of the project due to financial differences with Marvel.

Howard’s replacement, who will put on the suit of War Machine will be Academy-Award nominee Don Cheadle — most recently seen in Traitor.

This news is very disappointing as it is irritating; when a sequel done with a replacement of a cast member and the makers expect the audience not to notice.

Marvel sure has to come up with a believable explanation for the “new personality”, although Don Cheadle should be able to pull it.
