No, I was going to let it slide by in the sidebar with a grade of B+ and probably never mention it again until the inevitable Oscar nods for visual effects and sound effects editing arrive. However, as I clicked open my Internet browser and started "surfing the 'net" I was greeted with delightful news and just needed to share my delight. From Rama's Screen.
According to Hollywood Reporter, Don Cheadle has replaced Terrence Howard in the sequel, IRON MAN 2 sources close to the deal said negotiations with Howard fell through over financial differences, among other reasons.
My hatred for this vile and retched beast of a human being is well documented. He's a smug arsehole and I hope he never sets foot on a movie set ever again. So, yes, I was beyond thrilled to learn of his firing (or, more likely, quitting, but I prefer to imagine that the studio dumped him not vice versa). It figures that it is apparently for "financial differences" considering he probably sees himself as Will Smith when really he's only a Wayans brother. And any situation that allows Don Cheadle to take over from that pompous pathetic dickhead of a man is one that should be taken.
I can actually look forward to Iron Man 2 (please, don't call it Iron Man: War Machine and the Temple of Iron Versus the Metallic Heart Machine of Doom or whatever crazy title they could potentially come up with) with the sound knowledge that Terrence Howardigetacareer will be nowhere in sight. Let's rejoice!
Don Cheadle > Terrence Howard, true dat!
