Comic Book Movie Castings – Actors Who Got Dropped

It's often rare that an actor gets a good role in a comic book movie that is real and alive on the big screen. And even rare if thta actor endures and stretches an acting legacy from a comic book character.

Terrence Howard and Don Cheadle both starred in "Crash" and have both been nominated for the Best Actor Academy Award. Thanks to "Iron Man 2" out domestically this past Friday, their careers are now linked even closer.

In "Iron Man 2," Cheadle takes over the role of James Rhodes -- Iron Man's ally -- played by Howard in the original 2008 feature.

Other than complete reboots, like the 2008 version of "The Incredible Hulk" with Edward Norton wiping the slate clean five years after Eric Bana's Hulk, this type of recasting in mid-franchise is relatively rare in comic book movies. Here's a look at a few times when it did happen, and whether or not it was the right move.
