    In further reinforcement of Disney acquiring Marvel Entertainment, they've taken it a step further. The Wrap just reported a deal where Disney paid out Paramount $115 million in order to get the theatrical distribution rights for Iron Man 3 and Paramount.

    Very interesting and surprising. I'm assuming Paramount is happy with what they got out of the deal, but its also interesting that they'd want to give all that guaranteed money from Iron Man to Disney. I mean this is considering that the DVD sales for Iron Man 2 were 1 million in a day and 5 million in a week.

    From what I've read, Paramount is going to get a pretty good return on this considering they normally got 8% off the top for Iron Man, Iron Man 2, and the upcoming Thor and Cap. It's not a huge loss considering they weren't the producers of the movies and most of the revenue generated for Iron Man went to Disney.

    Yeah, Deadline Hollywood said they were going to get half of the $115 from the Avengers and the other half from IM3.

    Disney is dead serious about getting full control.

    I hope they go after Fox and Sony next.

    Expect it to have an immense budget then (which may not translate into a better film, of course).

    EDIT - I seriously wonder if Favreau will come back.

    Hopefully he comes back and hopefully the Mandarin is going to be the villian.

    Since this will be after the Avengers film I wonder if they'll leave out the tie-ins. I like them personally but there are plenty of people that *****ed that IM2 was an advertisement for the Avengers.

    While I doubt that it'll have much, if any impact on the actual quality of the films, still interesting news none the less.

    I'd imagine that there will still be some links like Nick Fury continuing to have a small role and maybe even a Cap or Thor cameo.

    They could, but Fox and Sony have iron-clad clauses in their contracts. Spider-Man is the crown jewel franchise for Sony, and they're not going to let it go unless the well runs dry. Same for Fox's X-Men franchise, to a lesser degree.

    :whatever:

    Of course anything they put out will not turn out into a better film according to you.

    Favreau will be back, there has been NOTHING that has led anyone to believe otherwise.

    Very surprised they have set a release in May 2013, that seems a bit soon after Avengers to me personally, I dont want this one to feel rushed like IM2 did.

    Old facts & ideas for Iron Man III, that still sound awesome:

    [​IMG]

    Q: Pick the next villain. Whom do you want?

    Robert Downey Junior: Well, I don't know if it's so much the nemesis that I would think about as much as what the character's genesis is and what kind of technology he acquires.

    Where do you find him at the beginning, and where does he have to go at the end? Because you still want to save space for the next. But very few fans, me one of them, would disagree that Mandarin was probably Tony Stark's greatest nemesis. Mandarin is badass.


    Jon Favreau: "What happens with Rhodey, what happens with War Machine, all that stuff? And then of course the pantheon of villains (Iron Man 2) and the larger Mandarin story.

    The problem with the Mandarin is that the way it's depicted in the comic books, you don't want to see that. He has 10 magical rings — that just doesn't feel right for our franchise. So it's either tech-based, or the rings are not really rings.

    But maybe with 'Thor' and all those others, you'll introduce magic to that world and it won't seem so out of place." "

    Here are some interesting thoughts from HF.com about yesterday's announcement:

    [​IMG]

    Will Jon Favreau return to direct?
    He'll be finished with "Cowboys and Aliens" so it's possible.

    Does this mean Robert Downey, Jr. is shooting two films as "Iron Man" back-to-back?
    Could be. Hope they increased his paycheck from the original contract.

    Who will the villain be this time around?
    Could the Mandarin, who was hinted at in the original picture, actually appear on screen?

    Does this mean no War Machine in "The Avengers"?
    Probably. Did you see Don Cheadle on the Comic-Con stage this summer? No, so look for James Rhodes to return in 2013.

    Will it be in 3-D?
    You're right. Dumb question. Of course it will be.

    How is it going to be rushed? Favreau isn't doing the Avengers, pretty much all he has to know is how the Avengers will end.

    lol at people acting like this is a rush job ala the Superman reboot.

    But the thing they need to drop from the third is War Machine. We would've gotten more action sequences and more focus on the enemies had he not of been in it.

    As much as I liked seeing War Machine I have to agree. Not to mention, I have a huge feeling Marvel will try to milk it and give him his own spinoff movie.

    People said IM2 wouldnt be rushed, it was, Favreau has to wait to see what happens in Avengers, which will only give him a year to do IM3, how is that in anyway a good thing?

    lol, you really think he's not going to know how the Avengers ends by the end of March or when filming ends? You really think Marvel's going to keep him in the dark? LOL He's got access to all the movies, hell he saw Cap and Thor storyboards even before both Chris' were even cast.

    Really, why does he even have to wait for the Avengers? All he really needs to know is if Tony's alive at the end of the film.

    And isn't everyone b***ing how Iron Man should be a stand alone film? So what's the problem with starting on part 3 after he finishes Cowboys and Aliens.

    I swear people find the dumbest excuses to cry and moan.

    That's kind of my one problem with Favreau. People whined about him not doing Avengers but then he's the one that's completely hands off to anything that's not "real" or "tech-based" in the Iron Man movies. A guy like that CAN NOT do Avengers.

    Agreed, Favreau (as much as I like him) would've been wrong for the Avengers.

    He should just stick to his tech based Iron Man movies.

    Just do tech based Iron Man vs tech based Mandarin (which is how it IS in the comics) and don't worry about magic and all that other stuff in the Avengers movie.

    And I swear people find the dumbest reasons to protect and defend everything Marvel does, I know you thought IM2 was 'Teh BeSt movIe eVer,' but some people, including myself, found it dissapointing, and I dont want that happening with IM3, okay?

    So, will Marvel/Disney do the right thing and hire Favreau to direct part 3? Is Cheadle confirmed for part 3? who will write the film? Favreau should be involved.. and yeah, if possible, Matt Fraction..
    who will be the villain(s?)

    They should not force the Demon in a bottle storyline.. too many fans have fetishized that.. They need to have the Mandarin if at all possible..

    Have I ever said it was 'Teh BeSt movIe eVer,' ? Please quote me on that. IM2 deserved it's fair share of criticisms just like any movie made.

    The main thing that was disappointing, again, were the action sequences, Tony and Ivan's second encounter should've been at the bday part with Vanko sporting a Mark II armor that looked like triangular faceplate armor he has in the comics and him kicking Tony's drunk ass all over the place leaving him alive because he had something better in store for him or him remembering Hammer's "you just don't kill the guy" quote. Then the final encounter should have been obviously at the expo, with Hammer introducing the drones and Vanko and then Vanko being the one that starts destroying the Expo and Tony getting there just in time to save the day.

    Like I've said before, they should never have added War Machine. They should've focused more on Tony and the villains. but oh no, lets add in War Machine so we can please fanboys who thought "teh armour was awezum in teh comix" and Iron Man can't do this alone crap.

    Part 2 didn't suffer from too many villains, it suffered from too many damn heroes. Hopefully they learn from their mistakes.

    And seriously, you really think Jon isn't going to know what happens or how the Avengers ends by the time he's done with Aliens and Cowboys? wtf, is RDJ going to say "nah ah, you're going to have to wait until the movie comes out like everyone else to know what happens in the Avengers".



    They already did their own take on DiaB and they don't need to go all Leaving Las Vegas on us.

    During IM2's promotion Jon and RDJ kept talking about Mandarin being in the 3rd one.



    Part 3 doesn't need anymore BSing around with too many unneeded heroes or upcoming teamup movies, Iron Man vs Mandarin needs to happen.

    Hahaha, like they're gonna give him one year to make an Iron Man movie. That's ****in' impossible! You know how they've been planning and writing the Avengers for months even though the Thor trailer hasn't even debuted yet and Cap's not even done shooting? Yeah.

    He might know the ending in the script, but who's to say Whedon wont change that during shooting? Do you how many movies in the past have filmed about 5 endings and only gone with a particular one at the last minute?

    ok man, just keep thinking Jon Favreau isn't going to have any inside info on the movie, just keep thinking he, Feige and Whedon won't get together sometime next year or at least him and Feige. Because at the end of the day after Whedon, Feige IS going to know what happens in ACT I, ACT II and ACT III of the Avengers and how that movie is going to end and what Iron Man will be doing.

    So yeah just keep thinking Jon is going to be completely in the dark until the Avengers premiere.

    LOL
