Terrence Howard Looks Back At Being Fired From The <i>Iron Man</i> Franchise!

The actor goes into detail about what caused his split with Marvel Studios, revealing more about how their decision made him feel and their apparent financial motivations for it...

"Hollywood is a business. You cannot take it personally," he said when looking back at how he was dropped from the successful Marvel Studios franchise after just the one movie back in 2008. "Iron Man and everything that happened with them taught me to not take anything personally."



However, the actor is clearly still a little bitter (and perhaps understandable so) about the way in which the whole situation went down, as he details below.

"You put your heart in everything and you do good by people and you don't have that returned to you. You do a three-picture deal with someone and they come to you after making 700, 800 million dollars and say, 'We think the second one will be successful with or without you, so instead of the eight million we owe you, we're going to give you one million and give you a half-hour to make a decision.'

"I just wanted what was in my contract."


As you know, Howard was replaced as Colonel James Rhodes by Don Cheadle in last years Iron Man 2, and never got the chance to don the War Machine armor. This is the first time we've seen him talk in such revealing detail about what went on behind-the-scenes. While this is only one side of the story, it does seem that Marvel Studios are more concerned with saving money than keeping the same actors and are more than happy to recast them if necessary. (Ed Norton, anyone?) Be sure to share your thoughts on this news in the usual place!
