Pushing The Avengers back to 2012 raises the possibility that Favreau could possibly direct it.
It's good that they're giving the films more time rather than rushing them, but they've now got a lot more risk concentrated in the summer of 2011 in terms of their self-financed films. Their previous plan for their self-financed slate had one surefire hit (Iron Man 2 and The Avengers respectively) and one potentially risky release (Thor and Captain America respectively) in the summers of 2010 and 2011. Now they have the two potentially risky releases together in the summer of 2011.
Actually, I think that Captain America will be a sure-fire hit since it will play well with American audiences. Thor will be out-there, for sure, but I hope it is awesome in all it's Asgardian glory.
Sing glorious, victorious,
One keg of beer for the four of us.
Sing glory be to God that there are no more of us,
For one of us could drink it all alone. Damn near.
