They’re Going to have to get the War Machine Armor Tailored

October 14, 2008

Terrence Howard is out of Iron Man 2, and Don Cheadle is up to replace him.

While it’s too bad to hear that Terrence Howard is out of his role as Jim Rhodes, it makes me happy to see an actor of Cheadle’s caliber take on the role.

This casting is a perfect example of how comic book movies are coming up in the world.  Very talented actors, with range, are being cast in these silly little comic book movies.  I’m a big comic book nerd, and I couldn’t be happier to see actors I enjoy for their talent being put to work in a form of film that has only recently started getting some proper respect.

And to sweeten the deal on the DC side of things, Ryan Gosling is rumored to be first in line for the lead role in Green Lantern, if he’d like to take it.  Chances of Gosling actually seeing this are completely astronomical, but just in case:

Do it, please.  The more Oscar winners and nominees who take these types of roles seriously, the better chance comic book movies have of continuing to be pretty awesome.

  1. I don’t know if I agree with you on War Machine…Cheadle is certainly talented, but so is Howard, not to mention buff and super hero-ish. I have faith that Don could pull it off, but Howard already has that militaristic air about him.

    As for Gosling, that would be a great match I think.
