Howard Suprised by “Iron Man 2” Re-Casting October 26, 2008 9:55 pm

When it was reported that Don Cheadle was signed to replace Terence Howard in Iron Man 2, I doubt I was the only one surprised by the move.  The assumption on the net was that Marvel Studios had a falling out with the actor over salary issues.  Howard was asked about the re-casting on NPR, and here’s how he explained it:

“Yeah, I found that out, too,” said Howard. “It was the surprise of a lifetime. There was no explanation. Just…up and vanished. I read something in the trades implicating that it was about money or something. But apparently the contracts that we write and sign aren’t worth the paper that they’re printed on, sometimes. Promises aren’t kept, and good faith negotiations aren’t always held up. Even friendships, people you support…”

I honestly can’t fault Howard for seeking a better contract given the success of the first film.  Oh well, let’s just hope it all pans out for the best with Cheadle, who is obviously a great actor.

Iron Man 2 director Jon Favreau told the Los Angeles Times that work has begun on the sequel:

I just talked to Jon Favreau a bit ago, and he said that while there hasn’t been an formal announcement on the sequel to “Iron Man,” he’s begun developing it. “We’re working on it now,” he said, “which hasn’t been officially announced. It will be released in 2010.”

Iron Man has grossed over $570M worldwide and is currently the year’s second highest-grossing film at $317.15M.  The sequel will hit theaters on April 30, 2010.  Justin Theroux (Tropic Thunder) is writing the script, while Robert Downey Jr. will return as Iron Man/Tony Stark and co-stars Gwyneth Paltrow and Terrence Howard are expected to return.

Jon Favreau will be returning to direct the sequel to Iron ManThough I personally didn’t think it was ever really in doubt, a while back it was being reported that Marvel was “lowballing” Favreau in their offer for him to direct a sequel.  Eventually, it was learned that Marvel Studios offerered Favreau a contract that was “definitely” larger than his wage for the first film.  Well, it looks like all is now well.

Here’s what Nikki Finke, who has the exclusive, posted over at her site Deadline Hollywood Daily:

It’s not officially announced yet, but I’m told that Marvel Studios and Iron Man director Jon Favreau have reached a deal for him to helm the sequel, due out in 2010. (Robert Downey Jr had a sequel clause in his contract so he’s on board.)

Iron Man 2 is scheduled to hit theaters on April 30, 2010.
