We have a Director (Jon Favreau) and a release date for Iron Man but still, no actors confirmed. Well, that’s just changed as IGN FilmForce, have stated that Favreau has Terence Howard from “Hustle and Flow” lined up for a role. But it is not that of Tony Stark a.k.a. Iron Man, but rather his sidekick, Col. James Rhodes.
From IGN FilmForce: “Director Jon Favreau may have an Oscar-nominated actor in mind for his forthcoming Iron Man movie. The Aint-it-Cool.com website claims that the filmmaker has offered a role to Terrence Howard. The role is not that of Tony Stark, a.k.a. Iron Man, but rather that of Stark’s friend, pilot Jim Rhodes. In the comics, Rhodes donned the Iron Man armor himself when Stark succumbed to alcoholism, and later became the character known as War Machine.”
Stay tuned as we eagerly await confirmation of who will play the Metal armoured Superhero.
