I'd suggest Taylor Hackford. Directed Proof of Life, Ray, and Devil's Advocate. Pretty decent flicks to be honest, and he can do action, drama, and a bit of fantasy.

Nice suggestion. Even if I disliked both Devil´s Advocate and Proof Of Life, Ray was pretty good and Hackford is surley capable and affordable

If you know your Avengers history and all the **** that goes on within the team, then you will agree that Paul Greengrass would be excellent. Either him or Hackford like I mentioned earlier.

Joss Whedon'd be great for this. You just know he has a great comic book movie inside him...

It'd be interesting to see Joss direct a movie he didn't write (which he's yet to try). Tho it didn't work out too well for Goyer as I recall.

Well, yeah but Whedon is much more talented than (the incredibly over-rated) Goyer...

I like Jon Favreau, but would he be able to prep for the Avengers after IM2 wrapped? I'd like Peter Jackson but not sure if he'd be interested or passionate about this project like he did for LOTR.

The big reason IM2 is so rushed is because it was several months after IM came out when Downey & Favs finally closed their deals, presumably because Marvel was waiting to gauge public reaction before moving forward. I would assume they aren't concerned in that department anymore. So if Favs signs on to do it while IM2 is in post, rather than wait several months, he'll have plenty of time. He could get a writer on it in the fall of this year and have a script done by the time IM2 comes out.

Whoever scribes the Avengers is also going to have to consult with what's going on in Johnston's and Brannaghs films as well so that they fit together.

Fernando Meirelles. Also did The Constant Gardener and Blindness. An unorthodox choice, but certainly competent.

So you liked the 2D characterization of characters that are much deeper in the novel but it was all cut because of actions scenes that had ultra slow-mo and bullet time every 5 seconds and a soundtrack that sounded like the playlist of a 16 year old, eye cancer causing colours and an ending that made less sense than the original pseudo alien invasion? fine by me, but I strongly believe that Watchmen failed on many levels to be a good movie

I agree with the above comment but conversations on Snyder and Watchmen don't belong in this thread and certainly not with the vitrole being thrown around on the subject.

As long as Marc Foster doesn't direct the Avengers movie I'm happy

I like what I'm hearing about Favreau possibly directing "The Avengers." He handled "Iron Man" very well, and I think he would do a fantastic job bringing all the heroes involved together. Something I also think would be interesting, though probably difficult, would be to bring all the directors of the various series onboard for this. Allow them to control the story for the character they helped bring to the big screen first. It would probably be a cluster----, but it could make for an interesting ride none the less.
