    Any good directors with ties to Universal for an action flick as Fav's has ties to Paramount?

    Well, that means we will be getting a Hulk sequel that is a short movie, as Penn doesnt like movies over 2 hrs. Bummer.

    No seriously Sava, both the writers of X3 prefer movies under 2 hrs. They both thought X2 was too long. And Simon Kinberg said Batman Begins would have been a better movie with 35 mins shaved off. They both say they have similar minds.

    Well, he has had a lot of negative feedback over the run time of X3, so he might make this a little bit longer, we wont know for a while.

    You know what Sav? i was thinking the exact same thing, he said in his answers on the xverse that he would like to direct a marvel feature in the future and i have a feeling this will be the one as i cannot see anyone they can get.

    ^ The movie he's up to direct for is the X-Men spin-off. I doubt he'll be given Hulk 2. It's too big for him as a first film to make and no way Marvel takes that risk with him with their first or second in house studio release.

    me neither, i havent heard them say anything about the next director, i guess we'll have to wait 6 or so months for that to start ;)
    your right, but this is too early, i dont think even Marvel is looking for a director, they'll wait to see that Zak will come up with then, go find someone

    I think he was in a lose-lose situation with T3 though, anyone who wasnt Cameron could not have done that film better from that script IMO. And Breakdown and U-571 are both good movies as well.

    No it wont take as long, but i dont want him to rush it as i, and i'm sure all of us, want a great sequel.

    i agree there, there was no way anyone could replace the great Cameron. I dont really care who's the director now anyway, they need to get the story right first, then the director issue can be sorted out

    I didnt even know he wrote a script in 1996.

    Even though i'm dissapointed with a lot of aspects of X3 so far, i think Zak may be able to write us a really good sequel if he gets the right time. And Zak, make this one a little longer than X3 please, thanks and good luck.

    So we can officially breathe a sigh of relief that Ang Lee won't be back.
