If Terminator Salvation turns out to be a masterpiece would people accept McG possibly directing The Avengers? But if I had to choose I'd probably say Jon Favreau.

I agree with that, as long as he keeps his head is in the same tone.

I've been wondering why Kevin Smith has never made a comic book movie. As big a fanboy as he is I figured he would be interested in making one.

If I'm not mistaken, he was heavily involved with DD. I say let Favrea have this badboy. He seems to "get" it. Though Marvel met with Ridley Scott.......i have no idea where I'm going with this.

that would be awesome if Favreau did it, that sucks that he can't. oh well, he's still on as a producer so that's cool, especially if they got Ridley to direct.

I like the concept of J.J Abrams. Speilberg and Jackson would be great, but completely unrealistic. Emmerich could be good, could be bad, Its 50/50 with him. It'd be interesting if Ridley Scott gets it.

A lot of very uninspired choices. Neither Favreau nor Leterrier or Brannagh made big genre flicks before (not counting Zathura which was basically a family comedy and Frankenstein). The only exception is Joe Johnston. So the director for Avengers will probably someone we will not think of. I mentioned Jason Reitman earlier, Mike Newell, Andy Tennant, Antoine Fuqua or Julie Taymore are very fine directors I´d be happy with.

Also, knowing they would never do it, Michael Haneke and Lars von Trier are probably my top choices.

Kevin Smith said at one of his speaking events that he won't direct a comic book film because he doesn't have the patience for it. He stated that filming action sequences are tedious, frustrating, and now you have to film a minute then cut, then film again and start piecing them together.

So he'd rather stick with films that he's known for and good at. His speaking event is on Youtube when someone asked him about it.

I like Smith for what he does. Not a good choice for Avengers in my opinion.

My vote is still for Zemekis. And he'd be easy to get. Just let him know it's something new that no one's ever seen before. That seems to be the only way he'll do a movie these days. It's like if he can't break ground somewhere, he doesn't want to do it. This would be tempting for him.

I believe there is an interview somwhere in the webs where Zemeckis said he is only interested in animation movies and will not do anymore live action

Huh, well that's too bad. The guy's a born storyteller if ever there was one.

Whomever is never actually right. It's a made up word used to trick students.

Now since it is delayed you may be able to get Favreau or Leterrier for that matter, but if you want a fresh approach why not try someone like Kathryn Bigelow who can do Adrenaline Rush better than most. I mean she's not going to be an ego and early indication is that her new film is pretty badass.
