    Actually kind of glad to hear Marvel's been very sparing with its money in regards to getting more named actors into their franchise movies. Sounds like they really -don't- want to blow money on names for the sake of names.

    This is a good thing. I look forward to seeing him in Iron Man 2, I must say.

    I'm glad they got him because they based Ultimate Fury off his likeness. it's just fitting. That and since he was in the first movie, it'd be odd to have someone else fill the role. Don Cheadle for example just pisses me off.

    But now my Marvel non-mutant movie collection grows. Iron man, Norton-Hulk, Spiderman, Daredevil, Ghost Rider, and Jackson Fury

    I'm with you on Cheadle, you would think after nailing down Jackson they could get Howard back to play Rhodie.

    And Howard did such a great job. I never found out what the issue was. Was he looking for to much money or did marvel just want a bigger name? I can't see Don getting less than Howard. From what I could tell from his interviews, Howard was very happy in his role.

    There are plenty of good actors that could do what he does.

    "THIS IS HOW I TALK!!! AIN'T YOU SEEN MY MOOOOOVVVIES!!!!!"

    I say Dave Chapelle as Sam L Jackson as Nick Fury!!!

    I read somewhere that Favreau and Howard had issues. Apparently he wasn't fun to work with. I don't remember where, though.

    But this is excellent news. And I'm pulling for Eliza Dushku for Black Widow. She's lobbying for the part.

    Or Sam pulled his head out of his own ass. It was Sam that took this public. We have no idea what either side wanted, and which side was being unreasonable in its demands (perhaps both, perhaps neither). Why the knee jerk reaction to Sam's side?

    This will also hopefully keep Sam from making a sequel to Formula 51.

    This is definitely some welcome news... I wasn't holding my breath, but I expected this to happen. Sam just likes to stay busy, and he wanted this role as much as he wanted Mace Windu.
