Re: If Favs is indeed out, who do you want to take the reins of Iron Man 3?
Of those available(leaves out Abrams, Wright, Whedon) I'd go with Reeves. LMI knocked my socks off and Cloverfield was pretty decent as well.
So long Harry Potter. The MCU is now the biggest franchise in history domestic AND WW. You're next, Pixar. $841m to go WW for you.
