It was announced two weeks ago that Don Cheadle would replace Terrence Howard in Iron Man 2, and then last week Terrence Howard went the extra step of telling the press that the casting change had taken him by surprise. Now someone has created an online petition (thanks for the tip, Max) demanding that Cheadle be fired and Terrence Howard brought back.
Marvel is under the impression that just any person can play Col. James “Rhodey” Rhodes. They are sadly mistaken.
Well, no. Marvel is under the impression that Don Cheadle can play Col. James “Rhodey” Rhodes. This petition would make a lot more sense if Marvel had fired Terrence Howard and hired “a cast of thousands” to create a Todd Solondz’s Palindrome-style performance of Col. James “Rhodey” Rhodes. Also, who wants this? Terrence Howard is the worst. No one wants him back. He clearly made this website himself. Those seminars at the Apple Store are free.
