    It's been known for sometime now that there would be a sequel to the summer blockbuster film from Marvel Comics.
    It is being reported that Terrence Howard will be replaced by Don Cheadle for the part of the Jim Rhodes character in the forthcoming sequel.
    Apparently negotiations between Marvel and Howard fell apart "over financial differences" among other things.

    I'd rather see Cheadle anyway.

    Sigh... What a mess.

    Let's hope they straighten that out soon.

    From Variety:
    Mickey Rourke and Sam Rockwell are currently in negotiations to play two key villains in the forthcoming film from Marvel Entertainment.
    Emily Blunt has apparently emerged as the frontrunner for the role of Black Widow in the film.
    Production of the film is scheduled to begin this spring,with a summer 2010 release by Paramount.

    I think he was good, but he shouldn't have been the highest paid guy in the film lol.

    I almost passed the movie up actually because I'm not a big Robert Downey Jr fan, but he did a phenomenal job as Tony Stark, if anyone should be making more money in the sequel it's him.

    Same thing for Samuel Jackson, I like him and all, but Nick Fury is a supporting character at best, I can't imagine they are going to be willing to pay the kind of money he wants to return.

    The whole Nick Fury arc was to have a few cameos (that surely are underpaid for Samuel's level of ability) leading to his own movie that wouldn't be underpaid. Of course... they have to agree on terms throughout the arc and the payoff movie. :)

    Happy Snowplow Mailbox Hockey Day!

    My son and I watched Iron Man this past weekend and we loved it. I saw this thread and didn't expect that the cast would fall apart though. :( After watching it, we both agreed it would be kewl to have a sequel, but at what cost. :bummed:

    I usually hate comic/superhero type movies made these days, but I really enjoyed Iron Man.

    Glad they are making a sequel at least, even if some of the characters are changed a bit.

    It may likely be even better...as they spent an awful lot of time in the original flick setting up the characters and basic plot...

    Yep, the same could be said for other flicks of this nature. Which begs the question of intent to continue this genre of films, setup for follow on material and films. Interesting concept.

    I just hate how Samuel L Jackson may not be in the Avengers movie.
