Initially i was pissed..But Don Cheadle was so good as Rhodey i never really even missed Terrence Howard to be honest..Same goes for Mark Ruffalo's Hulk when compared to Edward Nortons.

Howard was actually very good, but Cheadle has grown into the role. He did an amazing job in Iron man 3 showcasing some of Rhodey's combat skills and why he has earned the title of Colonel.

Haha, same here.I was like "but it's Edward Norton".

Norton is a brilliant actor, but he couldn't impersonate the true Bruce Banner and he didn't have the looks.

I usually don't like when there's a recast but Cheadle was better as Rhodey. He just felt more like a military Colonel to me and still had good chemistry with RDJ.

Why did they choose Cheadle anyways? Did Howard just quit or what?

Nah man he definitely had the look.lol..And was pretty darn convincing its just that Mark truly captured the nerdy meek scientist part alot better then Edward Norton did..And Norton seemed more inspired by the Lou Fergino and Bill Bixby 80s television show then he did the actually comics..

IIRC, it had to do with money. Howard was already making more than RDJ in the first film but wasn't going to get as much in the sequels. I think Howard also said that Marvel wanted Cheadle as Rhodey to begin with.

Yes, he indeed looked similar to the comics Banner, but imo Ruffalo to Hulk made more sense to me.
