Re: Did you know Joss Whedon almost directed this movie
I will forever be grateful to Favreau for the dynamite casting of RDJ as Tony Stark and setting up the fundamental tone of the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe, but yeah, it probably would've been better. That is not to say that Iron Man is bad, it's still the best Superhero origin movie put to celuloid. But Whedon has the skill to better even that.
