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.
Currently enduring a general malaise at the quality of live action Marvel/DC shows on network TV. Hopefully NetFlix can remedy that.
