Hollywood may want you to believe that the movie industry is a big family when promoting a movie, but actually it is but a big business. A stark example is reported by Slashfilm: actor Terrence Howard who played Jim Rhodes, Tony Stark’s military friend in the movie Iron Iron Man, is being replaced by Don Cheadle for Iron man 2. Marvel Studio is kicking Terrence Howard out of the loop to save money!

Well Marvel is maybe also preparing to give more weight to the character of Jim Rhodes, maybe Marvel is thinking about War Machine in Iron man 2. So Don Cheadle may be a better bet because he has indeed more experience than Terrence Howard: such experience would be welcome in case of a spin-off movie dedicated to War Machine.
Terrence Howard is an awesome actor and I understand he was hired specifically because he could play War Machine in a sequel. It is a big mistake to replace him. Besides, it ruins the continuity of the franchise. I think Don Cheadle is an excellent actor, but I don’t want to see Terrence Howard replaced. I might just sit the sequel out and save ten bucks.
I bet that you’ll go watch Iron Man 2 eventually! :)
