I for one am happy he is out. IM2 was wrong on so many levels and right from the opening scenes the pacing of the film was just not right. I was mostly bored by IM2 and really didnt want to see another take on IM by the same director. Now they can get a director in there who wants to play ball with the overall Marvel theme that is being created. Maybe introduce the Wrecking Crew as the villians which would tie into Loki and Thor and the Avengers.
