It's too bad big studios don't care about critical acclaim anymore.
Who says they don't? It's not so much not caring about critical acclaim as it is higher-ups at Marvel having a particular vision for their shared film universe. Anyone who isn't on board with that is either going to quit or be shown the door.

The problem with getting talented, big-name actors and directors is that they want to have a lot more say in the final product, and that will inevitably bring them into conflict with the aims of the studio. Norton being let go from the Hulk franchise sounded very much like this: he was heavily involved behind the scenes and apparently made some enemies at Marvel, which sealed his fate.

Like it or not, it's a business, and like any business there's plenty of politics and power plays to go around.

"Critical acclaim" is one of those things that's nice to have but hardly something you can predictably insert into a film. I'm sure Marvel would love to get that from all its movies but they no doubt care a hell of a lot more about what kind of box office they get.

I mean, it's not like Joss has to WRITE it in order to direct it.

No, but as director he'll have all but final say over the script. I've seen Serenity and Dollhouse and Alien: Resurrection and therefore don't trust him anywhere near a project that doesn't involve a gymnastic blonde fighting creatures of the night.

To be fair, he hates "Alien: Resurrection" as much as any of us.

Just keep Joel Schummacher away from the franchise.

Re: Jon Favreau exits IRON MAN 3

Fuckity fuck fuck. Iron Man was excellent, and 2 was even better. (Yeah - I just went there.)

Maybe the silver lining here is that there shouldn't be an Iron Man 3 apart from The Avengers - 2 wrapped up his personal character arc beautifully, leaving Avengers to tackle his certain teamwork personal arc. Maybe they could fold his contractual obligation for one more appearance in an Avengers 2?

Re: Jon Favreau exits IRON MAN 3

For the record, Iron Man 2 was really good.

Anyways, I'm saddened but not really surprised. All sources said that Marvel pretty much screwed him on the last one. I can only hope that they'll find a director with as much respect for the material as Favreau had.

You must have different records where you come from.

That said, it's to bad. As much as I didn't like IM2, I still think Jon was the man to over see the next one... ah, well.
