Looks like there will be a new resident brother in the "Iron Man" franchise.

The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that Terrance Howard, who starred opposite Robert Downey Jr. and others in the original "Iron Man,"  has been replaced by fellow Oscar nominee Don Cheadle for the sequel based on the graphic novel, "Iron Man 2."

Apparently, Howard had issues with his paycheck and "other" things.  Marvel, which was was keen on Cheadle from the get-go, approached the "Hotel Rwanda" star while he was shooting Antoine Fuqua's "Brooklyn's Finest."

Howard fans might be a bit upset, but if you're going to replace a great actor with another great actor, they don't come much better than Cheadle.

What do you think?
