We know that Terrence Howard got a bum deal as far as playing Rhodey in "Iron Man 2."  In a talk with MTV, he addresses his feelings over being replaced.
“I think they always wanted Don Cheadle from the very start and it’s nice that they get what they want. They could be a little nicer about it. You don’t make 800 million dollars and then try and shake everyone down. That’s not nice.”
The good news for Howard (and his fans), he may not be done with the comic book world.  Howard admits he's a comic book fan and perhaps he'll have better luck at DC.  On the subject of "Green Lantern," was playing John Stewart a possibility?
“[H]e doesn’t become black until the third [Green Lantern],” said Howard. “I think they’re planning to take those steps. We’ll see, I haven’t felt those out yet.”

Sounds like we could expect three GL movies?  Works for me.  It doesn't sound like he'd want to play John.  He does mention that he'd be interested in Black Lightning.

Do you think a Black Lighting movie would work?  Do you like the idea of "Green Lantern" being a trilogy?  Who should play John Stewart (if he appears in the GL movies)?  Do you think Howard got a bum deal with Marvel?

Howard was foolish and naïve in his dealings with Marvel. He didn't cover his own ass, and they pulled the rug out from under him. Does it suck? Yes. Is it unfair? Maybe. Does Howard have anyone to blame but himself? No. It's a cutthroat business, and he's been in the game long enough to know this.

I still don't know who to believe regarding Howard's departure from Iron Man.  Both he and Marvel have said different things.

Howard has admitted that he didn't bother to get a legally binding contract. Therefor, no matter how much of a dick move it is, Marvel has the right to cast someone else in the part.

Actually I could really see Terrance Howard as John Stewart. Justice League movie would rule if it was done right.

Terrence is probably a better actor than Common. But I think Common is a better rapper. They should get Jon Stewart to play John Stewart. LOL jk jk

Doubt that Black Lightning could support his own movie but what about a supporting character in a Superman one? I mean he comes from Metropolis...

If he would be more cooperative maybe he would have been cast for Iron man 2, but he is just to hard to work with, those were the words of the director. So the fact that he was replaced was his own fault.

Noooooooo! He don't fit as John Stuart! I don't see him nailing that role.. At least that's what I think..

Black Lightning, I think he can actually pull that one off :)

There is No Question that Common is a better rapper than Terrence Howard... hell thats what Common does for a living... Common is a Hip Hop Artist... but Terrence is easily the Better Actor than Common... Tee Howard has way more acting experience than Common

"Black Lightening". You never see a super-fast Asian character named "Yellow Speed" or and any other ethnic titles for superheros. Only only names like "Black Goliath" or "Black Panther". Just to make it fair I vote for short latino superhero called "Beans"

Terrance Howard is a great actor, and could pull off most if not all black heroes for sure, Black Lightning could definitely work

I know this is going to sound silly, but I would like someone darker to the play the role of John Stewart or T'Challa, infact Morris Chestnut would be the best actor for either T'Challa or any black superhero who has a brain but is physically tall and athletically muscular.

Michael Jai White, or Djimon Hounsou would fit the role much better than Morris Chestnut.

It was nothing he could do, he felt he deserved a little more than 1 million to return as Rowdy and I agree. It's not like this is the guy whos playing Jarvis asking for 2 million or or something, its Tony Starks best friend and his backup War Machine. Marvel could have swung a little and gave the guy at least half of what Robert was going to get if not at least a quarter of it. Anyone know how much Downy is getting for the sequal... I think I heard something around 4 to 5 million after the box office takes.

1. Would love a Green Lantern trilogy, one for every G.L.
2. Would love to see a Black Lighting movie.
3. I think Weasley Snipes could play John Stewart.
4. I think Tyrese Gibson could play Black Lighting.
