Exclamation Favreau to POSSIBLY Direct 'The Avengers'!

Source:
"Hey folks, Harry here - I had been hearing much of what this new "spy" offers via sources on the inside. AND as of this juncture, it looks like most of this is really solid. The AVENGERS move was done with the best hopes of Favreau coming aboard, whether or not anybody will go on record saying that, it is what I've heard for a while now, and I wasn't surprised by its date movement today."

If he gets the job, that's Iron Man 2 two years after Iron Man and then The Avengers two years after Iron Man 2. More power to him if he can pull it off, but man, talk about working yourself thin!

Unfortunately, Favreau hasn't shown me anything like action-wise that makes giddy to see him handle several characters that all require, imo, different kinds intensity to showcase their powers.

^You sound like you want Michael Bay. Favereau is the best choice for Avengers currently until we see what the other directors of the upcoming marvel movies can do.

Avengers should be a character driven film unlike Michael Bay films... I am all for Michael Bay action but you make those sacrifices... Nolan has not impressed me at all with the action in his Batman films, but he more than makes up for it.

I feel like an oddball because I really like the action in the Nolan Batman movies.

This reminds me of Nolan talking about Batman Begins 2, after the success of Batman Begins they asked him about a sequal. He said that if he did a sequal he imagined it going like this: Joker in part 2, with Dent introduced. Part 3 having Dent turn into Two-Face.

Favreau said that he told Marvel studios that Iron Man 3 better be called the Avengers! and I think he said he would like to direct it too.
So lets see if this one comes true too.

Nolan said that Dent would be Two-Face in part 3? HA! My friends kept saying 'HARVEY DENT DIED!!!". He didn't die. If he 'died' from the little fall, then why didn't Batman? Why would they get rid of a villain like that so fast? Huh!? He was only on screen for like 10 minutes.
Harvey Dent may of died, but Two-Face didn't.

Anyways, off topic.

I hope Favreau directs Avengers. That would be a nice choice. I wouldn't mind anyone else doing it though.

Nolan never said that, Goyer did. And Two-Face is dead

This isn't true either. Favreau said Avengers would make a nice third installment and help break the threequel curse, but also said he has a third Iron Man movie with Mandarin planned.

Bats was wearing armor. Dent wasn't.

Nolan has already gone on record after the films release declaring that harvey dent/two face was dead. There are also countless reasons why bringing him back would just be stupid but again that would be off topic.

How the hell do you kill off Two-Face in like ten minutes??? I know it's probably been discussed at nauseum over in the Bat forums... but damn... what a waste of a great villain.

This would be a fantastic move, in my opinion. Favreau really seems to know what he's doing with Iron Man, and I think he has the potential to bring the Avengers to life.

this may sound crazy but maybe we need 2 directors favreau for the story and character development, and someone else for the action 'visual arts'.

Favs for the story and LL for the brawls?

But yes, a few things scare me about Favs with the Avengers (though, I still think he is an excellent choice.)

A) Iron Man is his baby. By this time he'll have had two babies and may expect his third to walk, talk, and act the same. I don't want Avengers to feel like Iron Man. (Nor do I want an favoritism towards the character.) Not saying he isn't capable of making different types of films, but with Stark in the mix it may lead into some temptation to gravitate towards the style of the Iron Man films.

B) Ensemble movie. While Iron Man is an excellent movie, I feel it is excellent because of Stark, not because of the supporting characters. Does Fav's have it in him to balance several strong stories while trying to tell one bigger one?

C) Yes, action. The scenes fit for Iron Man, but they weren't anything... hard hitting or powerful. We are going to have several large and in charge superheroes against some powerful force... please for the love of God we need some masterful action scenes.

I am not saying Favs can't do it, in fact if he is announced as the director I won't be in the least bit disappointed. I'm just voicing concerns.

I love the idea of the idea of two directors that a poster mentioned.

If Favs can handle the story and the directing, who would some of your picks be for the action department? I'd say Peter Jackson or even James Cameron could handle the directing the action department.

One things for sure though, whoever directs this film is going to be having some major headaches. We're talking about bringing forth major characters, major villains, and making sure they receive their equal screen time and are developed well.

Two directors is a little too much. I mean I know Tintin has two directors attached. Maybe they could do something like a Spielberg/Bay although I don't know much input Spielberg has had in the Transformer films. It certainly didn't show at least in my eyes. I don't know, any big time action directors out there that can hold their own in a production like this without getting carried away with names like Jackson or Cameron?

Is it just me or... are the names Peter Jackson, Stephen Spielberg, and James Cameron thrown around for every superhero movie?

Favs and LL came out of left field and did an incredible job with Iron Man and Incredible Hulk. I prefer the way Marvel is doing things--getting untapped talent.

Cameron and Jackson are great with visuals and character development. Hence why their names are thrown around for directing comic films. As for Favs and LL? I really liked with LL did with the Incredible Hulk and his vision is what I always saw in my head when it came to the Hulk.

But it wouldn't hurt to have someone like Favs to create and mold the story while Jackson fine tunes it and directs the visuals/action.

But I won't lie when I say my dream comic book film would be Jackson directing a Conan or Thor film.
