Default No iron man 3 for jon favreau

From the main page :

Quote:
Jon Favreau will not be returning to the Marvel Universe for a third Iron Man film, Vulture reports.
The article suggests that the choice was made at the director's discretion and that he informed Marvel Studios of his decision this morning. Though Favreau's reasoning is purely speculatory at this stage, it is likely that the director simply wishes to pursue other creative ventures. With the upcoming Cowboys & Aliens hitting next summer and The Magic Kingdom in the early planning stages, Favreau should remain suitably busy for the time being.

SuperHeroHype is seeking official confirmation of the news and will bring you updates as soon as they become .

Way to go, Marvel. Marvel's lowballing is finally catching up with them. Is RDJ next?

I'm not surprised. He wasn't happy at all how Marvel treated Iron Man 2, and I am willing to believe most of the movie's mehness was because of the studio, not Favreau. Or I don't know. Iron Man has been the only Favreau (directed) movie I have liked.

I'm not upset though. I'm interested seeing someone else' take on Iron Man.

He's probably tired of Iron Man.

You can kind of tell from watching Iron Man 2.

Maybe he didnt like the fact he didnt get a stab at the avengers movie who knows.

Id like to see Iron Man under someone elses direction. Maybe a bit deeper and a little less AC/DC adventure.

Good job on the Iron Man movies though. I think this is not the last time well see him directing a super hero movie.

I think this is good for the franchise,
I love both IRON MAN and IRON MAN 2 but bringing in new blood could be good for the franchise so it doesn't grow stale. Get someone who's a fan and is excited to do it... Favreau could and prolly would do a good IM3 but I think new creative/behind the scenes talent is a good thing.

Well, that sucks. I was looking forward to Favreau's take on the Mandrian or whatever he had in mind for IM3. Best of luck to his future projects.

Still have a hard time believing this. Original article says that
1. He's too pricey. Uh, why do you think he's pricey? Marvel's the one that gave him that career boost. Like I said about them supposedly booting him from IM2 for the same reason- it's not like they're going "No way we can get Favreau, he's too hot off that Iron Man franchise!"
2. Even too pricey for Disney.

...

he's directing Magic Kingdom for Disney, about Disney. Am I missing something?

Hopefully Marvel will select another talented director that respects the source material. The first thing I thought when I heard that Fav wasnt coming back is "Here comes the cursed third movie in a series," but I try to be optimistic. So we'll see.

MTV News has contacted a representative of Favreau for comment and/or confirmation of the report. In the meantime, hang tight — we'll have an update for you as soon as possible.

I loved IM and IM2, flaws and all, so this made my crappy day even worse! And it really makes me worried about how Marvel's running things behind the scenes...

I'm just preparing myself that it is, indeed, true. Also thinking about who would be a good replacement director for Favreau.

I think at this point, money plays a factor only because if Jon is gonna deal with the BS, I suppose he'll only do it if the price is right. I just feel like he's over it.

Also, Disney isn't directly involved with the Marvel stuff, so I think they're just the distributors. So his relationship isn't stained with Disney; Marvel, I don't know.
