From AICN

Quote:
-Avengers is delayed a year because of financing issues but also because the plan is for Favreau to helm it. Everybody here loves the guy and he wants to do it, but it would have been impossible for him to do before the date change given his Iron Man 2 commitments. Also partly the reason why he agreed to do the Stark sequel on such an accelerated schedule was so he could get given first dibs on this. It would still be a punishing schedule for him, so hes not firmly confirmed yet, but he is certainly the presumptive director at this point.

I hope IM3 is still in the plans... now that might be looking at 2014.

Favreau seems to be a fanboy like us. I doubt he'd be using Whiplash in a movie if there wasn't a 100% chance of an Iron Man 3 w/ Mandarin

If TERMINATOR SALVATION is a masterpiece I will eat my own face. If it turns out to be good it will no doubt be thanks to Haggis, Nolan, Bale and the other actors. And while T4 might not require a visionary, if THE AVENGERS is being written by Zak Penn it probably will.

His visual style is completely static, and I say this as a fan of Smith. While his comedies don't require the camera to actually move, a superhero movie would. He hasn't shown the ability needed for the job yet, though I hear he's doing a Bruce Willis actioner soon.

Looking at Marvel's slate:

IRON MAN 2 - May 7, 2010 - May 7, 2010
THE AVENGERS - July 15, 2011 - May 4, 2012

Surely that gives Favs enough time to do AVENGERS, no?

That's really the only downside I see with Favreau doing it. I don't really want to have to wait until 2014 for IM3.

It was either that or 2013... because I'd imagine RDJ would need a break before IM3. So it will be four years after IM2... which is long... but BB3 appears to be going four years in between as well. RDJ is kinda old but I don't think one year would make a huge difference.

Im honestly getting sick of the "Favreau should direct The Avengers" thing. Like, really guys? IM wasnt that good. It was watchable, but not enough to warrant him directing The Avengers. Just my opinion, of course.

I would be happy if Favreau got the gig for The Avengers. Maybe then he can pick his own composer to score the movie and not use Ramin Djawadi as forced onto him by Marvel.

I wouldn't be upset if Favreau got the Avengers gig, but I would prefer someone else. The strength of the Marvel films thus far has been choosing the right director for the character. I was hoping a different director could put a different spin on this ultimate character mash-up film.

Well that seems to be a dividing line around here. You either thought TDK was God-like and IM wasn't or vice-versa.

I'd nominate Gore Verbinski. The POTC movies were high class (and hard PG-13 to boot.) Plus, I pretty much love POTC3 to death.

Up until the news about Marvel reshuffling the schedule the other day, I more or less expected 2013 for IM3.

I think it'd be cool if Favreau does direct the Avengers, but having to wait four years after IM2 before we see Stark face off against the Mandarin would just be annoying.

Didn't you hear that Spielberg just lost a huge amount of money thanks to the investment scandal? I'm sure he'd be up for a movie that would be a guaranteed success.
