did you know that terrence howard was supposed to be rhodey in all three iron man films but the way the deal was made, terrence would be getting a significant portion of the paycheck from the movies so rdj took terrence’s cut of the paycheck and had them hire don cheadle who was paid significantly less to play rhodey than terrence howard was so that rdj could make more money
terrence howard had been rdj’s friend for years.
Gotdamn rdj is actually a shit stain
Can I just say that one of my very favorite parts of Winter Soldier was Nick Fury cocking an eyebrow at the police officers side-eyeing his expensive vehicle and sneering, “You wanna see my lease?”
Because the idea of Nick Motherfucking Fury having to deal with shit as disgusting and petty as racial profiling is sort of painfully realistic and heartbreaking. He’s hugely, massively powerful, and he’s sitting in his bulletproof car pondering decisions of worldwide import, but also he gets pulled over sometimes and asked for his registration because the police assume he stole it.
Ack. I was just so pleased that they included that line.
