There should never be more than one director on any given film. Epic Fail waiting to happen.

I hope Avengers doesn't become an Iron Man show. And I don't think box office will affect the story in any way since they need to be filming spring 2011 as it is... barring delays. It's just going to come down to how confident Marvel is with Thor and how they think his solo movie will be received. If they aren't confident then I expect these other characters to take a back seat to Stark on top of shedding some of the more fantastical aspects from the movie. But all Marvel can do is try to make a successful movie. My only suggestion if market the hell out of the DVD's and make people see both Cap/Thor to build that hype up. Otherwise the movie probably won't make much more than an Iron Man movie.

You don't need multiple directors. You need one guy with enough energy and vision to get it to grasp all these concepts and gel them and present them in a feasible way. Easier said than done, but this isn't an episodic movie. Its one big gigantic movie, not FOUR ROOMS.

The question is who will direct.

Hopefully not Brett Ratner or Michael Bay.

I'm not sure who wrote the article, but its kind of ******** to me.

An Avengers movie needs a love triangle with Thor, Thor's girlfriend, and Pepper Potts? Ex-squeeze me? WTF.

That was a message board post, not an article.

Also, I'm pretty sure co-directing a film will get you kicked off the Director's Guild, unless you're an established team, like the Coen brothers or something. It happened to Rodriguez when he gave Miller credit for Sin City.

Ridley Scott for Avengers makes the most sense to me.

He can handle that epic scale, has ensembles in his movies well, is great at telling stories visually.

He would be PERFECT for Avengers.

Tough crowd... Spielberg/Jackson (Tin Tin) get a pass I guess.

Yeah when's this Tintin movie coming out?

Guys, get Ridley Scott, Spielberg, and Jackson out of your heads. They along with James Cameron will never do this movie.

I don't see why not.

Who would of thought a guy like Chris Nolan would do a Batman movie?

Because Nolan before that time was basically a low budget indie filmmaker.

Once again, whenever these movies are getting made, fanboys wish their favorite pet directors get to do it and its always someone like Spielberg, Cameron, Peter Jackson, etc.

They are busy and they aren't going to do it.

Spielberg shouldn't be let near these movies anyway. War of The Worlds and Indy 4 were bad enough.

Yea I understand what you are saying.

But I didn't say Ridley Scott because he's my favourite pet director. I said him because I think a film like this is right up his alley.

And wasn't he spotted meeting with Feige at the start of the year or something? With comic book films getting taken more seriously these days, it wouldn't surprise me if these so called "higher brow" directors or actors start getting involved.

It looks like it will be like this:
Tin Tin 1: Spielberg director, Spielberg/Jackson producers. Tin Tin 2: Jackson director, Spielberg/Jackson producers
