I don't know. But goddamn if he did I would go crazy.

At the top of my head, Jon Favreau. But I know that won't happen.

J.J. Abrams is a very interesting choice.

The Avengers

Directed by Steven Spielberg

Starring

Robert Downey Jr.
Edward Norton
Aaron Eckhart


I would have a goddamn heart attack.

How about Peter Jackson? He could make The Avengers into a real epic superhero movie.

PEter Jackson would do a great job, IMO. I also think that J.J. Abrams or John Favreau would do a great job.

I concur with louie and Raiden. Peter Jackson all the way. But, he may be too busy with Tintin.

One of the reasons I'm thinking John Favreau is because of how well he set up stuff for future Iron Man films along with the Avengers film. He just really seems to know what he's doing when it comes to Iron Man and ireally think he has what it takes to direct an Avengers film.

I think just about everyone would be happy with Favs directing it. The problem is that if the release schedule stays anywhere close to what it is now, he won't be able to. He's acknowledged that himself.

and the fact that hes already been signed aas executive producers cuz he wants to sit back and be a coucil figure.. i think he wants to keep Iron Man his baby and be humble and let someone else have Avengers cuz he could easily have the job. He's Marvel's Nolan.

Tbh, I think he could. He seems very into the Iron Man/Avenger universe and is passionate about it, so I really think he's capable of doing great with a project this big.

J.J. Abrams would definitely be a good choice.

David Fincher would make one hell of a superhero film. Have a feeling he'd be well able to create some iconic shots and create a great atmosphere.

Favreau is out of the picture,I dont know why people are still looking forward to him directing it.

JJ Abrams is a fine candidate.

I'm still hoping Danny Boyle (28 days later, Trainspotting) will be interested in directing this flick

I know it's obvious, but how about Zak Snyder? I think he's proven his chops. I doubt he'd be down for something so huge right after Watchmen, but you'd have to consider him.
