Iron Man 3 can both kill off the franchise and get critical acclaiam, four words, Demon in a Bottle.

Re: Jon Favreau exits IRON MAN 3

I suppose his absence behind the camera means he won't be appearing in front of it, either. Should they recast Happy or just ignore the character? He was taking on greater importance in the second film.

Fictitiously yours, Trent Roman

Re: Jon Favreau exits IRON MAN 3

"Iron Man 2" was not really good, it was really disappointing. I can understand his frustrations with dealing with the studio, feeling restrained with trying to make the movie he wanted to make was probably irritating.

Re: Jon Favreau exits IRON MAN 3

Shame. Favreau is a good, capable, director and Iron Man 1 shows that. Even some of IM2 shows that but it's hindered by the shoe-horning of the Avengers stuff and other studio man-handling. (Though I think RDJ's stuff with Stark's alcoholism was a bit hammilly done but I'm not sure even that's all on RDJ or Favreau.) Hope Favs moves on to something good as the man is a good director and screen writer.

This is where Warner gives Favreau free reign on one of their DC superheroes.

To be fair, the rest of us weren't paid to help write it and make something good out of it. He was.

I had no problem with The Avengers stuff in Iron Man 2. The real problem with that movie was the horrendous 'Tony Stark is dying but wait! his dad just happened to invent the stuff that could cure him' angle.

No, he was just paid to write it. Some French bloke was paid to make a film from that script.

Hey I dropped in and ran back to work.
Looks like we were posting at the same time. Two minutes apart.

Far as I'm concerned, his name's in the credits, he's partially to blame. The script's the backbone of a film.

Re: Jon Favreau exits IRON MAN 3

It's being said that RJD has director approval of IM3 - so he may not end up being as unhappy as some might thing.
