As alot of us know, it was announced Friday that Jon Favreau would be helming Iron Man. I've noticed some people here seem to enjoy the choice, while others do not and wanted someone else like Alex Proyas directing instead. Or because Favreau has mostly directed comedies since first becoming a director. I was a bit curious as to hearing your opinions on the news, and wanted to talk about it fairly in this thread. Personally, I think he'll do a great job. He's admitted to knowing and being a fan of comics when he played Foggy Nelson in Daredevil, along with being the one to talk Famke Janssen into taking the role of Jean Grey for the X-Men franchise. My only hope is that he'll get rid of the thought of Tony Stark facing his own father in the film, and will come up with something fresh or taking an actual villain from the comics. Favreau seems to be well on his way with the film's progression since first signing on to direct it, he even talked about how he'll be using an extensive use of CGI. Discuss.
