I definitely don't think it will be an A list director but I think it could possibly be a B list director. Marvel's gonna want to get a director both them and the fans can get behind.

Or they may want a director than can easily be controlled. It can go either way.

He's too inexperienced a director, and Tron didn't receive good enough reviews, nor does it look like it's going to do well enough at the BO to justify giving him IM.

Webb also directed over 100 music videos and 500 Days of Summer got much better reviews than Tr2n. Whereas Joseph Kosinski directed entirely CG commercials of Halo 3 and Gears of War and Tr2n.

They'll want someone who has talent, won't cost too much and is on board the whole 'one universe' thing from the start and who's available. Duncan Jones or Matt Reeves are the likely candidates, IMO(as long as they're cool with the one-universe thing, which I have no idea about).

Louis Letterier had the job for ITH and he wasn't/isn't exactly renowned! Kevin Branagh, on the other hand, is a pretty celebrity-level guy to work behind. Maybe I'm too naive but Marvel Studios seems to be very flexible as long as the creators remain faithful to the comics and their Avengers project. There's this notion of cooperation between the producers and the directors, just like Marvel does with their magazines, so who knows, it just might be someone of high caliber but with a good idea.

That's indeed what they want. Marvel wants people who love the comics and are willing to cooperate in establishing this shared universe. As long as they don't go overboard and start compiling a list of demands for directors (like who's required to cameo and stuff) then they'll be fine.

And to be honest, in the case of Kosinski, the script was crap from the beginning (in an interview with the screenwriters, they mentioned they left a lot out for a sequel) so I'll give him some slack and wait until he makes another film in order to fully judge his skills as a director.

With that said, he's too inexperienced for Iron Man 3. The Spiderman reboot is much cheaper and much less riskier. Webb's not working with very experienced actors much less RDJ and the Spider-man franchise will gross a lot of money because it's Spidey (unless it's really bad).

Cameos shouldn't be dictated by concerns of upcoming movies so much as being integral to the story. If it makes sense that character X shows up, then do it. Like it would make perfect sense for Cap to show up in an Iron Man movie that was an adaption of Armor Wars.

But if it doesn't make sense for them to be there then please don't shoe-horn them in. That's just blatant pandering and it's kinda insulting.

I don't think Marvel's doing that (and I never thought that was the case for IM2 ) though I have a bad feeling that Feige may eventually push for that. I don't know why, but I feel as though he would do that.

I don't think I've seen it suggested here yet (though I might've missed it), so I'll suggest Alex Proyas.

Of course, ideally I'd want Fav's back...

Alex Proyas seems to be a good choice. All his movies have made bank, varing critical success, has clear visions for his project while maintaining the level of yes man requried to work on a Marvel Project based on his work with I, Robot for FOX.

Zach Snyder. He would give us great armored action.

When I consider that a director is usually in charge of all aspects of a film(i.e. bringing them all together so that they work as a whole) then yes, I think the directing there was bad. Yes, I know he didn't write it but that he signed on to direct such a poorly(and this term can't be overstated in regards to that film, IMO) written screenplay......that has to say something about his own judgment.

Hahaha, I JUST watched it two nights ago. C'mon it was one of those films that just didn't know what it was. Like people. It started off as a creepy horror film about possession, became a disaster movie at some point, turned to a conspiracy film with bibilical horror, and ended up being an apocalyptic alien story. Seriously, Zack Snyder would've been right at home there (no offense, I love his work, but the genre shifts somehow remind me of him). Proyas is great, but I think he'd muck up Iron Man.

I still say Matt Reeves would be a great choice, but Shane Black too.

Those are my top 2 picks. I wouldn't choose one over the other.
