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.
It was reported in advanced iron.org website that Fav's will be directing Avengers after IM3 is post-production,and ready for release.

That's great to hear. The last thing I want is a hack director taking over the third Iron Man while Jon Favreau is distracted with something else.

There's speculation and rumors that he'll direct The Avengers, but nothing has been officially announced yet (although I think the speculation is very likely to turn out to be correct). But if he does direct it, it would be after Iron Man 2, not Iron Man 3.

If they are serious about making The Avengers they have to delay Iron Man 3 then. They can't have Favreau making two films at the same time.

Moving Captain America to one week after Deathly Hallows II is a big mistake. They should bump it up to Friday, July 1--the Fourth of July weekend.
How the heck can Captain America NOT BE a July 4th release?

It just friggin sells itself lol.

Or Memorial Day can work from that aspect as well. I like the July 4th setting a bit more.

DVD release for Veteran's day

It's Branaugh, so even if the movie isn't a massive success it'll at least be worth going to for the sheer larger-than-life element he'd bring to it. Wonder if he'll cast himself in any of the roles.

All that says is that JMS's run is over. I didn't see anything about the series being over.

It's possible. However, he's already managed to find the perfect Odin: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yaDibW_BTvg

I was hoping he'd cast himself as Loki, but I suppose maybe he is too old now. Damn shame, since he was great as Iago.

Captain America is only a camp character if he's written that way. True, that tends to be the portrayal usually associated with the character, but one can look to the Ultimate line for an example of the perils that come with such naiveté and nationalist attachment. And while this film will, by all indications, take place mostly if not entirely in the WWII period, an Avengers movie can reduce or outright eliminate any camp factor with a more realistic, nuanced portrayal of a man experiencing the culture shock of seventy years' worth of social progress. (I'd love to see a scene such as this in an Avengers film: Cap challenges Fury about the ethics of some action saying it goes against his principles, or else questions whether the present [which would seem very loose and immoral from his perspective] is worth defending; Fury responds by telling him, in brief, about "Truth" and all the black men who were involuntarily experimented upon so that he could be created; the look on Steve Rogers' face as he is forced to confront the ugly side to his own idealistic existence).

Fictitiously yours, Trent Roman
If they do ANYTHING with "Ultimate Cap" or the Truth story, I will have nothing to do with either the Cap solo OR the Avengers that is based on it.

I'm SICK of seeing Cap "deconsructed" (ie torn down and rendered ignoble) for the jaded, so-called sensitivities of the modern audience.

It's not. JMS is leaving Thor because he made the book popular enough that it was going to be the focus of the next crossover event. And JMS didn't want to coordinate with a crossover, so he walked away.

Good on them for not rushing things.

So far the Avenger "tie ins" like Iron Man and Hulk (2008) have been awesome. Well cast and made by people who respect and understand the characters and stories.

Thor seems in good hands too and all that remains is finding the right people for Cap America.

If that means the Avengers movie is being pushed back a year to get the other movies comfortably in place before combining it all together. Avengers has the possibility to be THE blockbuster of 2012 if done right so i hope they do it right both storywise and characterwise.

And i just can't wait to see Cap yell "Avengers Assemble!" (i'll be the guy who then yells "Hell Yeah! )

Re: Marvel release dates: Thor and The Avengers delayed a year

Someone compared the naysayers' griping about this project to the griping about Star Wars never getting done. That's not a very good comparison. You see Star Wars got done because it had one person with one vision. Love him or hate him, George Lucas was that person who was able to get people together and get things done. Where is that person when it comes to the Avengers project? The person who is able to get these various egos like Favareau, Downey, Branagh and the like and to say "This is what's going to be done and this is how it's going to be done and if you don't like it, you can go fuck yourself with a churro!"? This is a massive undertaking, and with the will he/won't he contract negotiations not too long ago along with the changing release dates (which won't end I predict), this is becoming more of a "too many chiefs and not enough indians" scenario. Sorry to play devil's advocate, but show me that person with that leadership position, and I'll be convinced that this is moving forward successfully.

^^^^
I do believe the 'Chief' is Kevin Friege, head of Marvel Studios. I would wager that contract negotions have been accounted for on just how this whole Avengers Assemble movie is going to come together. Favreau, Downey and Norton all knew they were part of a growing puzzle. Marvel Studios signed Jackson to a 10 picture deal, obviously Samuel Jackson is in on the 'big picture. I just have to believe that before signing and coming on board Branagh, the cast of Thor and who ever ends up doing Captain America will have the details all laid out in front of them regarding 'the plan'.
