Don Cheadle to replace Terrence Howard in Iron Man 2.

Or so this blog reports.

To be honest, I was never entirely pleased with Howard’s performance in Iron Man, and I liked Cheadle a lot in both Hotel Rwanda and Ocean’s Eleven – so this isn’t really bugging me. Robert Downey and Gwyneth Paltrow are coming back to reprise their roles, and that’s probably the key to the movie right there.  The article that spawned all of this… well.  Some weird stuff going on there, maybe.  On the other hand, the preliminary buzz on Star Trek was worrisome, too – and that turned out OK.

We’ll see.
