    This was a thread I honestly did not want to make since I feel this is Favreau's baby to an extent considering he did the sequel, but if it has come down to it, who in the directing world could capture that feel of the universe? It will have to be someone that knows how to do serious AND fun, so you know...a grimdark director nor a goofy spectacle loving one will suffice.

    I think he'll play Happy again, but in a small capacity.

    Tarantino wouldn't do it, though it would be interesting.

    Whedon would be great but it depends how he does on The Avengers. I don't know if he's willing to do big movies BACK TO BACK like that..

    Maybe they'll take someone from Nolan's list of choices for TDKR director.

    If it just has to be someone else, I would probably say David Gordon Green, even though I want him for the TMNT reboot. I think he could capture the humor and maintain the violent PG-13 content.

    I'm surprised no one's suggested RDJ himself.... given that so many around here make him out to be some sort of omnipresent God capable of anything and everything he sets his mind to.

    Ah, you mean the brand new movie initiative that Team Downey (RDJ & Susan Downey's company) has taken? Could be.

    But the problem is, that RDJ & his thoughts & ideas on Iron Man aren't going well with Marvel (he said in some interview, that they've rejected several of his ideas for both of Iron Man movies).

    I want Favearu to return to IM3, but if he is indeed gone I think maybe either Martin Campbell or Gore Verbinski will be good choice, since both understand action scenes well and have helmed some very good films in their resume. I won't be surprised if WB hires Favearu for a Flash movie, however.

    I could go with someone who has no experience,but I rather go with someone who has experience if the story is true.

    No one.

    No Favreau and a majority of the cast we'll have to be recast and I'd rather that not happen.

    I'd go with the Gore Verbinski suggestion for now. Since he seems like the one who could best emulate the tone of the first two films.
