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.

Sigh...things started off so beautifully. But after Norton, Howard, Jackson, Rourke, their insistence on Avengers subplots in IM2 and now this, I just have to question what value they really place on the talent itself, aside from the Marvel properties.

I can imagine RDJ wouldn't be particularly thrilled to star in these films without Jon's involvement, so I really do hope Favreau's decision was based solely on the fact he just wanted to do other things. Strangely, with his initial excitement over the future of the IM franchise, not to mention his desire to executive produce the Avengers movie itself, I have to lend credence to something behind the scenes once again mucking up the process.

I may have enjoyed Ironman 2 alot,but this could be a good thing if the quality is better compared to Ironman 2,even though it got lots of positive reviews,those reviews weren't as positive as the ones that were meant for Ironman. I think that this could go either way if in fact that it is true that Favreau won't be directing Ironman 3.

is this even confirmed, for starters? (edit, nevermind!) If it happens to be true, so what? It's just a movie. You people all complain about Marvel supposedly being cheap, yet they have continue to bring in stars to their franchises (Hopkins, Portman, Weaving, etc.) and replace actors with quality (Cheadle, Ruffalo). You don't think they can manage to bring in a talented director?

Oh, and the IM2 hate is ridiculous. It's arguably the best superhero movie thats isn't directed by Chris Nolan and ironically, Jon Favreau. Maybe the first two Spiderman movies, but that might be a stretch.
