It's not simply a matter of being ready to definitely go right after a strike is over. The length of the strike could definitively affect that type of status.
The point that I was subtly trying to make was that it should be that simple. There's no reason that it shouldn't. If a film is successful and it's due in kind to the director's talent and vision as well as the writers involved and the actors, then it makes sense to lock them up quickly, right? And with something like an actor's strike looming, it again makes sense to get the ball rolling on the script. But that's not at all what Marvel is doing. Which doesn't make sense.

Marvel has limited production budget money for all their films like 800 something million and they already have used up $290 million of it. So naturally they don't want to bump Jon's paycheck because then it will cost too much since Robert too will demand a much higher paycheck.

You guys need to realize that ASAP.

I for one am ok if they change the director and get someone as talented as Jon. Maybe do it like the harry potter series. Truth be told Sam Raimi stayed with SM franchise and guess what! He delivered a piece of garbage with SM3.

No, SM-3 sucked because Avi Arad and Lauren Ziskin forced Raimi to include Venom and Gwen Stacy (though Sandman being Uncle Ben's real killer was his idea, so I'll give you that). It only helps prove the point that if a director delivers a hit and you want to keep making that mighty buck that you brought the first time...do not f**k him over! You should encourage him even more to work with you (I remember reading somewhere WB gave Zack Snyder a car (an Aston Martin if memory serves my right) as a present for all the cash 300 brought in) and not the opposite (Singer, Fox, X-men 3, remember that?)

Plus it's not like Marvel has lost any money, hell i'm pretty sure they've made enough to fund 2 or 3 more movies than originally planned. So i don't see why Marvel has the need to cry poverty.

And regarding the time constraints, I see no reason why we couldn't see Iron Man 2 in 2010, maybe not April 30 2010, but in a later month like July (kinda like what happened with SM-2). Given that this mess gets fixed on time.

I hope this whole thing gets worked out in the end. The last thing I want to see is Marvel falling on it's face while they had things working so well.

This is Bryan Singer vs. Fox on X3 all over again. I think Iron Man's a tad overrated but it was quite good under the direction of Jon. He can and I think he will improve for the sequel, if Marvel doesn't get an ego, which it seems they have all of a sudden.

They'd be stupid to not bring him back and rush it out for 2010.

This is just crazy, almost unbelieveable.

Well I don't see how this is all that similar since Singer kind of did accept an offer from WB to do Superman Returns. While Favreau has not really done anything like that.

When Marvel announced the release date of summer 2010, no one was saying that they were rushing it out.

No he wouldn't...but he wouldn't want to be shortchanged either. I mean c'mon, he made Marvel a TON of cash...

IMO, a pay raise is NOT that unreasonable of a request given these particular circumstances.

You lose Faverau, you lose RDJ, Howard, Paltrow, etc.

Not literally of course because I guess they're under contract but I could totally see RDJ simply 'phoning it in' for sequels if they dump his #1 collaborator (Faverau)...

I'm pretty sure Marvel has done the same thing with Favreau. I believe I read on the front page that they gave Favs a car after the big OW as a token of appreciation.

It's interesting how this is playing out because there are two parts to this: the supposed money issue and if Favs returns, whether or not it would be for IM2 or Avengers.

It wasn't Marvel that gave him a car...that was Paramount.

When Marvel announced the release date, people assumed that the scripting process was well underway and that it was only a formality to resign the director and his crew. Further information indicates that those were false assumptions.

Vile,

It's similar to the Singer situation in that Fox waited too damn long to sign Singer for X3 after X2 was such a critical and financial hit. The decision shouldn't have taken two years for Fox to figure out what they wanted to with Singer for the third film...hence WB pursuing of Singer. They were just as surprised as the rest of us that Singer wasn't locked up for the third film.

The same situation, but slightly different, is happening with this. It's just plain stupid.

What if WB offered Favreau "Superman: Man of Steel"?

That'd be such a kick in the balls now wouldn't it?

Lol.

It's likely that Marvel didn't want Favreau on the Iron Man sequel because in a fairly recent interview, he expressed his interest in directing the Avengers movie. He went on to say that it would be impossible for him to take on both productions because of timing, so I think that Marvel just might surprise him and give him a shot at the Avengers movie, mainly because he did such a brilliant job with Iron Man, that they want to grant his wish... That makes the most logical sense, but you never know these days.

But he also has made it very clear that he wants to do an Iron Man 2. And after that, if possible, he would like to do The Avengers.

It's not the first time Marvel had done something like this. Stan Lee sued them around the time the original Spider-man hit DVD because he wasn't even paid one red cent for the movie. Marvel's defense: "the movie didn't make a profit."

this is the suck . if it turns out that favreau doesnt direct iron man 2 and directs the avengers then maybe it will make some sense but i doubt that would happen . there needs to be some sort of agreement and hopefully soon.

OK, just curious, is this really the only side of it? Everyone is ready to crucify Marvel Studios right now. And I don't think there's enough information to say these things.

And the worse part is that all this negative buzz comes right before hulk release.

Sometimes I think fanboy blogs shouldn't exist. They are pests.

Internet rumors, bloggers, and gossip reporters all said Hillary Swank was in Iron Man. And we all know how that turned out. We saw why it happened as well.

Jon Favreau said on his myspace that: he was in the film as well as Samuel L. Jackson and Hilary Swank. And then he added that one of the three names he mentionned might be a lie...

Everybody knew that Jon Favreau was going to play Happy Hugan. Every internet websites broke the news that Samuel L. Jackson would play Nick Fury. And then people were apparently too dumb to realise that the whole Hilary Swank thing was just a joke by Favreau but they still tried to find her in the picture...

No. The Swank rumor came first, followed by the Favreau joke, saying one or whatever of the things was true.

Favreau didn't report on Swank first on his myspace board. Internet bloggers and reporters were saying it first. More than likely because of the dark haired girl in the caesar's palace scene looked similar to Swank. Mystery solved.
