For Iron Man 2, Terrence Howard is going to be replaced by Don Cheadle, a huge shock to the actor who starred in the original Iron Man flick.

"It was the surprise of a lifetime," Howard said. "There was no explanation, (the contract) just up and vanished."

Iron Man didn’t catapult Terrence Howard to success, but it certainly did help relaunch his star. Not having a sequel to fall back on could hurt him, but perhaps he doesn’t need it. Terrence Howard has been acting since the 80s afterall, and become well known after starring in Mr. Holland’s Opus in 1995.

Terrence Howard didn’t say much else about the Iron Man 2 disappointment, just that contracts "aren’t worth the paper that they’re printed on sometimes."
