Re: No iron man 3 for jon favreau
I really hate the departure of Faverau. RDJ may be credited for IM1's success, but it was really Favearu and his passion for the character that helped made Iron Man into a household name and a superhero kids love to dress up as during Halloween. IM2 suffered a bit, partly due to the awkward implementation of the Avengers-centric stuff that Faverau had to include, as well as the recast for Rhodey, but I had high hopes that IM3 will once again become a standalone film where Favearu gets to do what he wants in the best interest of the franchise. I now have real concerns that IM3 will turn into another X3 or Superman 3, two other franchises where the original director's departure affected the conclusion of the trilogy tremendously.
