Spielberg has some say in the process. He wanted the Transformers film to concentrate more on the human perspective than the robots and was the one who pushed for Bumblebee to be Sam's guardian.

So he has quite a bit of say in the creative process.

I'd wet myself if Favreau directed and the directors of the other supes movies were the producers and had a say in the movie to make sure that there respective hero get recognized

Branagh & Johnston will be in post when this films - I'm sure they'll have some input. They'll only be a few rooms and/or floors away while this is filming its soundstage portions.

Jackson did a great job with LOTR but a not so great job with KING KONG. So I mean, he can't be the great masterful director of everything.

I hope Favreau is up for it after Iron Man 2 and isn't too tired or burn out. This would basically mean very little to no off time between movies since the plan is to release them two years apart.

I don't see how Marvel can even think about scheduling this **** this tight... I mean Favs is not involved with Thor or Cap... and now you are going to ask him to work with guys he is barely familiar with a year after wrapping up IM2. Talk about getting overworked. I'd prefer they give him the full three years. I think Jon will need AT LEAST one three year break somewhere in between or otherwise he will wear himself out. Maybe IM3 gets pushed back to 2015 or something, but that's five years after IM2. Not that I have something against Favs... but I didn't he'd do Avengers. Or maybe co-direct with like Letterier handling the action sequences... not that I was THAT impressed by his work in TIH. But I am re-thinking my doubts about two directors myself myself... maybe if there is a guy that can handle the action and CGI aspects alone, that MIGHT be the winning formula.

I'm not sure what you are getting at Fat Tonie.

You do realize that Favreau has already signed on as a producer of Avengers right? So he's already going to be working on it and involved in some capacity. So this not familiar thing is NONSENSE.

Yes its tight. But directors have to do it fight before.

Also, its not confirmed that Favreau will do it. However, if Marvel wants to do it, and Favreau wants to do it that way, what is wrong?

I am saying he is not going to be familiar with the teams involved with the Cap and Thor projects being that he is not attached as a producer there. Was it that unclear... or was it Vile disagreeing with Tonie for disagreeing with Tonie's sake...

No I think its Tonie being belligerent for the sake of being belligerent.

How do you know he's NOT familiar with them? Clearly Favreau has staked a big part of his future in working on these movies so . . . again I'm not sure why are you are being so angry about it.

Favreau wants to be involved with Avengers. He's made a deal to work on Avengers in some capacity. Why do you feel he don't do his part and what is necessary to do things?

I'm not angry... I just don't see how he can have input in the other solo films while he is still wrapping up post production with IM2. What I imagined they'd do was hire their Avengers director by 2009 and then have him overlook all these projects as a producer or something of that capacity, where he can have some input as far as lead-ins to Avengers. Favreau probably won't have that input with Thor and Cap considering the schedule.

Well for one thing. Cap and Thor aren't even in production yet.

Also, Favreau has already signed on to work on Avengers in some capacity, so . . .

Well if he's rumored to be directing I'd imagine he'd be involved with Avengers in some capacity. But even as producer that's understandable. I am sure Branagh and Johnson may very well be involved. I am just saying Favreau might be hardpressed incorporating all these guys into one film when he basically has a year and a half to get his **** together. Which is why I thought they'd hire a guy by now that can start prep earlier while he is fresh without having the baggage of being worn out by previous solo projects.

Wasn't it said somewhere that there was some kind of think tank involving all the Marvel Studios guys as well as Favreau in order to make all the crossingover work and everyone shooting in the same building in Cali therefor knowing what's going on?

If that's the case I think people like Fat Tonie need to chill out. These movies haven't even gotten in front of the cameras yet.

This isn't a Fox/DBE situation here.

But if another director was hired wouldn't that director also be unfamiliar with the characters as well? Isn't that the same as fav?

And we have seen what happens what multiple heads in a studio take too much of a hands on approach on a big budget tentpole before...

I am a proponent of letting one guy who you trust and knows what he's doing to have NEAR complete creative control, and I want to see his vision unfold as opposed to tidbits of different ideas thrown into one giant mess. And Avengers certainly is not immune to that if recent history taught us anything. If it's just a studio collective effort where no one guy has definitive input of what gets put in and what gets left out then I think the film will fall short.

Yeah but if you brought in that guy early while he is free he can take a hands on approach with the aspects of all the solo films that tie into Avengers without having to do a solo film between now and then.

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.
In the words of Tony Stark testing out the Mark 2:

"Sometime you have to run before you can walk".

Yes, the "brain trust" and IMO, it is a brilliant idea and the only way to go with something like this. Pixar's been doing the exact same thing with their movies for years(even though they're not all really interconnected) and it has served them well. Listen to Brad Bird's commentary on The Incredibles, he talks all about it and found it to be an extremely valuable resource. If it's good enough for Pixar with their track record of excellence, I'd say it's good enough for Marvel.

I think it makes sense if they want to a cohesive cinematic Marvel movie-verse.

I think people are overreacting by saying they won't be able to work with others while this or that is in pre-production.

If Favreau is signed on as exec. producer of Avengers, then Favreau is already looking ahead in some form.

I don't mind Favreau for the Avengers. I loved Ironman and if Ironman 2 is as good as the first one, he'll be a good director for the team movie.

At the end of the day, he started this new Marvel era, hehe, so would be nice to see him finish the process too.

I'm sure the focus won't be on Stark. I remember hearing that Favreau liked Hulk as a kid more than Iron Man.

I think Favreau will do great for the Avengers.

I have to comment on the Jackson, Cameron, and Speilberg issue with them being always brought up with superhero films.
Those three are great directors, and really who wouldn't want to see a Peter Jackson's Thor, or Speilberg directing Captain America.
Anyways back on topic

I think what would work is if (and they probably will) Marvel hires the directors of Thor, Cap, TIH and IM ( I know Fav is already signed) as producers to the Avengers so that way who ever the director is can have their imput on the way they did their character.
