Robert Downey, Jr. and Jon Favreau Suit Up For Marvel Studios' "The Avengers" and "Iron Man 2" As part of his four picture deal with Marvel Studios, Robert Downey Jr. is appearing as Tony Stark in "The Avengers" motion picture, as well as reprising his starring role as the larger-than-life leading character in "Iron Man 2." Jon Favreau will return to direct the sequel to the blockbuster "Iron Man," which to date has grossed over $578 million worldwide, as well as executive produce "The Avengers." Academy Award® nominee Downey was most recently seen in the summer comedy blockbuster "Tropic Thunder" starring opposite Ben Stiller and Jack Black. Before "Iron Man," he was best known for his film roles in "Kiss Kiss Bang Bang," "Wonder Boys" and "Chaplin," the film for which he was nominated for an Oscar®. In addition to directing the first "Iron Man," Favreau has previously directed "Elf," "Zathura: A Space Adventure" and "Made." He is also well known for writing and starring in "Swingers." He will next be seen acting in "Four Christmasses," "I Love You Man" and "Couples Retreat." Don Cheadle Will Star as Rhodey in "Iron Man 2" Marvel Studios is pleased today to confirm that an agreement has been finalized with award-winning actor Don Cheadle to take on the role of Colonel James "Rhodey" Rhodes in Marvel's "Iron Man 2" due in theaters on May 7, 2010. In casting Cheadle, Marvel replaces Terrence Howard who appeared in the role of Rhodey in Iron Man. Cheadle is also signed on to perform the same role in "The Avengers" and subsequent installments of the "Iron Man" franchise. "We are very excited about working with the extraordinarily talented Don Cheadle as we expand the role of Rhodey in 'Iron Man 2.' It has already become apparent as we prep the movie for production, that the dynamic between Robert and Don will take 'Iron Man 2' to new heights," said Kevin Feige, President of Marvel Studios. Cheadle is best known for his Oscar® nominated lead performance in "Hotel Rwanda" as well as his role as Basher Tarr in the "Ocean's" franchise, "Crash" and "Swordfish." Based on Marvel's iconic Super Hero, "Iron Man 2" continues the story of this summer's box office blockbuster IRON MAN, the first feature film produced independently by Marvel Studios. "Iron Man 2" will be produced by Marvel Studios' President, Kevin Feige, and executive produced by Louis D'Esposito, Jon Favreau, Stan Lee, David Maisel and Denis Stewart. In a movie event, "The Avengers" will bring together the super hero team of Marvel Comics characters for the first time ever, including Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, the Hulk and more, as they are forced to band together to battle the biggest foe they've ever faced. The highly anticipated sequel to "Iron Man" will be released in theatres on May 7, 2010 and "The Avengers" will be released July 15, 2011. Both films will be distributed by Paramount Pictures.

I really wanna know some of the cast for the Avengers movie...I think the roster should look like this...Iron ManCaptain AmericaWaspHawkeyeThorBlack Widow*Hulkthe Scarlet Witch*Quicksilver** = maybe

[quote:98f1ed00d3="Nova#1"] I liked Terrance Howard in the role, thing is I don't think Cheadle has the look to be Rhodey.[/quote] Agreed, Terrance has a cute face (no ****) but less threatening. Since Marvel releases movies with a target market of kids, Don Cheadle is more of a serious actor to play for a Comic based movie, in my opinion. If more Marvel movies were like Sin City with Blood and Swearing, like in the comics, then Cheadle would be appropriate, but again - that's just me! = )Terrance was excellent for the War Machine part. How are they going to explain his appearance change? haha - like surgery over night or he got the same fate as Stark in the first movie, except instead or metal in his heart, it went in his face? now he looks different? awe man..

Terrence Howard should definitely still be rhodey. I really liked cheadle in hotel rwanda, but the thing with cheadle is he seems like he is too old and mature for the role of rhodey. To me, Rhodey is a role for a younger actor, like howard, who can portray him as someone who is in control, yet nervous about stark's hijinks. I thought Howard did a nice job of that in the first movie.

i think it sounds all great and can't wait to see the next one and the full blown Avengers film, Don Cheadle is a really good actor and a well known name, allthough i don't really think he fits the role as good as Howerd did, but his range is amazing so i'm sure he'll pull it off with flying colures. TERRANCE HOWERD IS A B!#@%, what an idiot, the role of Rhodes is such a promising peice, war mechine could even have a spin off. he just gave up the role of a life time that he'll never see agian. what a prick

SabWriter

Why replace Howard? That is the big question for me anyway. I hate switching actors in major roles, Rhodie is a huge part of Iron man. Not that i think Don can't pull it off, he's a fine actor> I have much respect for his work. It would have served better if he was also in the first roll. Terrence is an equally fine actor who did start the roll as Rhodes and in my opinion should be allowed to continue or at least let us who have appreciated his effort in Iron Man know why his return is not likely in I.M.2!!!! DON WILL BRING A LOT TO THE ROLE BUT IT WON'T BE ENOUGH TO EQUAL THE Chemistry of the original cast. Mark my words I've seen it, I've been there. You will ask me how i knew, and i will say told you soooo. SabWriter

[quote@TTGC8 just like you would not star a black Captain America!! or how about a black jewish Magneto.[/quote] Problem with that is they have never been portrayed like that in any comic whatsoever....Also, it seems like the whole Marvel Movies are going to kind of been a new universe. I mean the whole "child prodigy" thing with Tony Stark is kind of adapting Ultimate Iron Man in there too. In the regular MU, Tony was never a "child prodigy".

<<<<<<<< looks like there is a problem with the message board. I joined in 1970?????? BTW Stan Lee hates the fact that they are changing his original characters. Sorry but Samual Jackson is to young to be playing the director of S.H.E.I.L.D and have defended against the nazis in world war 2. Jackson was a Horrable choice to star Nick Fury.if they couldnt get Hasselhoff, Kurt Russel would be my second choice.And this is not the alternate Marvel Univers known as "Ultimate" and there is nothing ultimate about a black Nick Fury.I am not racist I just hate it when people make a movie and dont read the true storyline first!!!!!!Watch the original "Nick Fury: Agent of S.H.E.I.L.D" or read the Stan Lee Nick Fury comics, not these fake "Ultimate" alternate universe marvel comics. It is like the difference between "Mobile Suit Gundam" and "Gundam Wing", Two completely different universes.

TTGC8
TTGC8

Sorry I have to disagree with the whole Shaft playing Nick Fury Marvel needs to retract jackson as nick fury and star the origenal person who played nick fury in the original film "David Hasselhoff" you can not change the race of a character it ruins the Story line I saw Iron man and right when they showed Nick fury the movie became an utter failure that is why the "ultimate" world of Mavel is a failure to real Marvel comic enthusiests Nick Fury was in a descise for one mission and it was and I quoat his "[i] worst descuise ever [/i] " " HE IS NOT BLACK !!!!" just like you would not star a black Captain America!! or how about a black jewish Magneto. if they start changing the race of the characters I will lose all intrest in Marvel like a lot of comic fans. Marvel will definatly go under if this race change trend continues.Nick Fury is white and will always be white to real Marvel comic fans not the fake "ultimate" marvel world.

It just drives me nuts when people get stuck on things and don't know how to accept change. I know a lot of people feel like they are a part of what happens, and like to complain about things, but they will still go watch the movie one way or the other. Because it mostly likely going to be good no matter what, unless they just totally dropped the ball. In that case I will apologies to everyone.

GOD!!! You guys go on about the dumbest things. I liked Howard as Rhodey, but something happened and things changed. Cheadle is a great actor, with a great presence. Your talking about that Don is too small to be War Machine? You are dumb. Not only does Cheadle have time to bulk up, but think about it, its a movie. People look bigger on the screen than they are. RDJ is in shape but he isn't that big of a guy. He's like 5'10 or something, is all about the way its shot and presented. Things will be alright. Plus if anyone needed to be replaced for IM2 it would be Pepper. Gwenith is a horrible actress, she totally phoned in the movie, she was the weakest part in the whole movie. Just because she looks good (Sometimes...) doesn't mean that she's good. The movie will be good, just as long as RDJ plays the part.

DO NOT CHANGE ACTORS!! Every time you change an actor, the chemistry sucks! I am not even sure I want to see the next movie now. Don C. is a good actor, but he is not, nor will he ever be, James Rhoads. HE IS TOO SMALL!! Leave Terrance Howard as James Rhoads. Now that Marvel is doing their own movies, I was hoping they wouldn't make the same mistakes that other studios make. PLEASE, in the name of everything that is holy and sacred at Marvel, BRING TERRANCE HOWARD BACK!!! I, and everyone I talk to, WILL BOYCOTT IRONMAN 2 if Don Cheadle is Rhoady.

Wonder Woman is DC....did you mean Wonderman?? I personally do not think that this team is going to be any more then 5...maybe six. I don't think that FF will be involved, cause they would need to be kept together. Iron Man and Hulk are definitely involved.Captain America should be there too.

I still say John Cena wrestler/actor would be great as Capt. America. That the woman who played xena tv series, can't think of her name, would be perfect for Wonder Woman.

Thats too bad, if its true. You introduce everyone in the first movie, then you change the actor who portrays them, as if no one would notice. This isn't to put don chedle down, because I really like this actor. Its just too bad that the almighty dollar comes into play, think about it, why else would they want to replace Howard, wehn you know already that they clicked in the first movie?

Although I liked Howard as Col. Rhodes, I don't think the actor switch will hurt the movie's success. Just look at Dark Knight, they switched actors for a supporting role, and it went on to be the second highest grossing movie of all time! I'm still bummed about it. I can't wait for the Avengers movie! It will be the best! I hope that they stay true to the comics, and make it the most epic, crazy, action intensive movie ever!

Until I get the names of people who say this kind of stuff, I won't believe it. Sounds stupid to have Howard the highest paid actor in a movie that he is just in a supporting role.Too stupid to believe IMO.

I am wondering what happened to Terrence Howard. There for a while, I had read that he had signed on for all 3 movies. I like Don Cheadle and all, but I cant see him as Rhodey. Cheadle isn't rough enough or crazy enough to be Rhodey.

What I want to know is why exactly Terrence Howard will not be playing the part of Rhodey in Iron Man 2 is it the actors choice or the director or studio. Lets be honest here who has seen Don Cheadle play the part of an action hero and do a good job of it because I haven't now if I'm wrong I'll shut the hell up but I don't think he has the chops for it or the look. Its just pisses me off to see Terrence Howard go because personally the only person that I think he was a great Rhodey and the only person that could do a better job would be Cuba Gooding Jr considering he did a damn good job in Men of Honor and he hasn't really starred in anything worth watching lately so he would probably been willing to do the job.

I am very unhappy that Marvel did not decide to keep Terrance Howard as James Rhodes. I feel that Howard would be a better War Machine than Don Cheadle. Do not get me wrong, Cheadle is a great actor. He doesn't strike me as the best actor to be James Rhodes. As far as money, what actor doesn't want to be paid more money? Marvel should sign Howard as Rhodes/War Machine and give the people what we want, another great Iron Man movie.

[quote@EvilMonkey18 [quote@hafriko It seems pretty cler that Terrence Howard wanted more money to play Rhodey, so Marvel looked elsewhere. Honestly, who can blame them? War Machine is a supporting role that Howard is too big for. Don Cheadle is indeed an incredible talent and those who may doubt his skills should definitely go see Traitor. :dead:[/quote] Has that been confirmed as the reason for Marvel replacing Howard?[/quote] There hasn't been anything said about why the replacement has happened.

I agree with al of you but at the same time disagree. Terrence howard was and excellent War Machine. but iono if he would be worth the money. after all Marvel does have poop uck with sequals and the movie may flop.As for the avengers some big name actors will be necissary. SOME. all that is needed for capt. america is a blue eyed blond guy. although brad pit would be slick, hes not really needed. cant wait to see who plays thor. and what about spider woman? or scarlet witch? Hulk was an avenger...but in sayin that so were wolverine and spider man and points. Iono who should play Pym. as for Don Cheadle...me and my friends have been debating for some time who should play the Black Panther....

Marvel Studios isn't stupid. Obviously they would have kept Howard as Rhodey if they could have. But something happened. So they did the best they could. Cheadle is a better actor anyway. What's the alternative? Not make another Iron Man just because they don't have the original Rhodey? That would be worse. I have faith that Iron Man 2 will still be awesome.

After [i] Iron Man[/i] became a blockbuster, Howard decided we wanted a larger paycheck to return to the second film, which will undoubtably be successful. Who wouldn't ask for more money? It's common sense.

I HONESTLY HOPE THEY STAY AWAY FROM THE SUPER BIG NAME ACTORS AND KEEP IT WITHIN A NORMAL BUDGET. YOU DON'T WANT BRAD PITT AND THE AVENGERS, THOUGH I'D SETTLE FOR STEVE BUSCEMI AS BRUCE BANNER BECAUSE HE'S CHEAPER THAN ED. IF LUCY LIU IS CAST AS THE WASP THEN THE MOVIE WOULD FAIL, NOT BECAUSE SHE ISN'T A GOOD ACTRESS, IT BECOMES A WHO CAN WE GET AND NOT WHO FITS. I AGREE DON CHEADLE DOESN'T HAVE THE BUILD OF RHODEY, BUT IN ULTIMATE AVENGERS, RHODEY ISN'T THAT MUCH BIGGER. IN THE NORMAL MARVEL UNIVERSE HE WAS HUGE, BUT FOR THE ROLE IN THE MOVIE DON CAN PULL IT OFF, GO SEE TRAITOR.

I THINK THE SWITCH FOR RHODEY IS GOOD IF YOU EVER READ THE COMIC. NOT THAT TERRENCE DID A BAD JOB, THEY ARE TRYING TO KEEP THE CHARACTERS CLOSER TO THE COMICS AND RHODEY WAS A DARK SKINNED DUDE WITH ALOT OF ATTITUDE AND SENSE OF HUMOR FROM TIME TO TIME. TERRENCE FIT, HE JUST LOST OUT ON HIS SHADE OF COLOR, WHICH IS ISNT A GOOD OR BAD THING IN THIS CASE.AS FOR THE TEAM, CAPTAIN AMERICA, THOR, IRON MAN, WAR MACHINE, HULK, GIANT MAN, WASP, BLACK WIDOW AND MAYBE HAWKEYE. I HEARD THERE MAY BE OTHER APPEARANCES FROM PROF X. FANTASTIC FOUR, SPIDERMAN, AND QUICKSILVE AND SCARLET WITCH, THOSE REMAIN TO BE SEEN. NO INFO ON THE BLACK PANTHER WHICH IS A GOOD THING, SAVE HIM FOR AVENGERS 2 WITH QUICKSILVER AND SCARLET WITCH. GUYS IF YOU HAVEN'T READ THE ULTIMATE AVENGERS YOU'RE DOING YOURSELVES A SERIOUS INJUSTICE, YOU CAN GE MOST OF THE INFO YOU NEED FOR THE MOVIES THERE.

I didn't really care too much for Terrance Howard as Rhodey in the first place. He doesn't seem tough enough for it...sure, the attitude was there, but not the presence. I don't agree with Don Cheadle...mostly, he is too small of a guy. Rhodey is a big dude...Cheadle (unless he gets major trainage) is just too little. I like Cheadle as an actor, but he just doesn't fit. I would've liked to see Snipes as Rhodey. S.L. Jackson...perfect fit for Fury. In Ultimate Avengers ... they even discuss who will play them all, lol. They however, mentioned Johnny Depp as Stark...The ones I can remember were as follows...Brad Pitt - Steve Rogers / Cap Steve Buscemi - Bruce BannerMark Wahlberg - Giant Man / Henry PymLucy Liu - WaspSL Jackson - Fury (drawing looks EXACTLY like him)

I think that in the movie for The Avengers, they should not make the roster too big. Iron Man and Spider-Man should be in it. I am not too sure if War Machine should be there, with a small roster it would be weird having two very similar superheroes in the group.Not sure if Hulk will fit there...but you never know. I think that most of the title characters that get movies will be in the Avengers...except a few (I am looking at you Ben and Jen).

samuel l. jackson is the man ultimate Nick Fury was modelled after. While I think they should have left Rhody alone, I do not think anyone but Jackson could play a role so obviously modeled after himself.

:emma: :gambit: see i totally agree several of you. why destroy a formula that already works, terrence howard was awesome as rhodey so keep as rhodey. don cheadle is a great actor but he's not rhodey. i really think samuel l jackson would be a superb nick fury. check out his stats; i.e. star wars (a bad ass), shaft ( a bad ass). if he plays nick fury he would be the bad ass marvel needs to bring the character to life. what i want to know other than thor, capt., iron man, warmachine, and hulk who else is in the avegers. i would love to see ms. marvel, storm(halle berry), wolverine(the one and only hugh jackman),spiderman(tobey mcguire), and blackpanther
