Cheadle to take over Rhodes/War Machine in Iron Man 2
by Doc on Oct.14, 2008, under Movies
Don Cheadle (Ocean’s Eleven and sequels) will take over the role of Jim Rhodes in the upcoming Iron Man 2. Played by Terrence Howard in the first movie, the character within the comic mythos becomes War Machine, using another suit of armor created by Stark, although there is no indication that will happen in the sequel. Howard and Marvel apparently disagreed on financial arrangements, and Marvel had interest in working with Cheadle. I’ve been impressed with Cheadle and his various roles, so this may be a move in the right direction.
