Re: Jon Favreau exits IRON MAN 3

^ Regardless of your own views about the Avengers stuff and the quality of the movie, much of the gossip and tittle-tattle about the making of IM2 and Favs' feelings about it has centred on his not liking Marvel's insistence on including the Avengers-related material and scenes.

That of itself does not make it true, but I do find it surprising that a story purporting to tell the truth about his departure completely omits any reference to that rumour. So that makes me doubt the comicbookmovie story.

Re: Jon Favreau exits IRON MAN 3

And in his own words:

Favreau spoke in reverent terms of the legacy of Walt Disney and made it clear that his departure from Marvel is no snap decision or the result of fractured relations. The main impulse was to “find something that lights a fire” inside of him as a filmmaker and gives him a chance to “blow people away, which is easier to do with a project that isn’t loaded with built-in expectations.”
When I first heard about the ['Magic Kingdom' film] project, I was on my way to visit Disneyland with my family. I took notes and had no problem filling a book with all the ideas that this concept offered, even on first blush. Since then, I was lucky enough to be given a tour of Imagineering by Tony Baxter, who knows just about everything there is to know about Disneyland. He pulled original concept art from the archives for me and exposed me to Walt’s original vision.”
It’s telling that Favreau described his departure from Marvel more like a graduation than a divorce.

“Marvel and I both came of age together,” Favreau said. “The years that we shared were a pivotal experience. Kevin has a firm grasp on the many franchises and how they all interweave and I am happy that I had the opportunity to establish the world that these characters can now play in…. ‘Iron Man’ has given me tremendous opportunities and Kevin and I are enjoying a lot of momentum in our careers thanks to the ‘Iron Man’ films. I look forward to seeing what others can do playing in the same world.”
He'll still be the executive producer for Iron Man 3 as well. I believe he may hold a producer credit for The Avengers as well.

Much ado about nothing.

^ Sure, because obviously Hollywood types only ever tell the truth and never give diplomatic versions for the press.

It's not that big a deal. What I read there is that Favreau will continue to be compensated nicely by Marvel for what he in fact did - as he's not shy about reminding us - turn the on-again, off-again successes of Marvel at the movies into a franchise with real momentum and focus.

(No, Spider-Man and the X-critters did not)

Re: Jon Favreau exits IRON MAN 3

Favreau exiting Iron Man 3 was entirely predictable. RDJ will probably make Iron Man 3 and then call it quits.

Okay, enough!

Listen to me carefully:

The ending was not the only problem. The whole damn movie was the problem, and if Joss Whedon was apologetic about it it was only because he was sorry he didn't have total control over it, the better to reward his slavering fans with yet another JW joint, which would have been Serenity with Aliens, the prospect of which was hinted at in Resurrection and makes my skin crawl, and if the studio "interfered" it only served to save us from the full force of Whedon's moronic, half-assed ideas about science fiction.

I don't care if he hated the movie, I don't care that others have absolved him of responsibility for it, I would rather subject myself to Twilight/True Blood marathon than watch any superhero movie that Whedon has total control over.
There's a common saying: a movie is written three times. Once by the writer. The second time on set. The third time in the editing bay.

This doesn't take into account studio interference when the writer is working on X number of drafts.

I'm not fan of Joss Whedon. I don't bow to his throne. I don't go crazy for EVERYthing he does, I'm kinda MEH on him directing the Avengers, but, seriously, a writer on a film script has a tremendous lack of power.

That's why writers either become directors or they move into TV, where they will wield power.

Re: Jon Favreau exits IRON MAN 3

The trailer for Cowboys And Aliens is more intriguing than the entire collection of spandexed-and-plastic-armored super douches that Marvel is touting this year and next, anyway. Maybe Whedon can make the Avengers worthwhile.

Re: Jon Favreau exits IRON MAN 3

I dunno if anyone has heard Favs audio commentary for "Iron Man 2" it's pretty compelling, gets right down to explaining things and pointing out Easter eggs.

Re: Jon Favreau exits IRON MAN 3

I'm a bit disappointed that he couldn't stick it out for another movie, but y'know sometimes that's what it takes for the studio to go "hmm maaaaaaybe we shouldn't have pushed too hard." Although, as much as I loved the Fav's directed Iron Man movies, I wouldn't mind seeing the 3rd one be a bit more action oriented. I'm not talking Micheal Bay like action, but I would like to see more of Iron Man in action and fighting actual super villans, even if they are just one off'ers. Hell, I'd love to see the Beetle or Jack Frost aka Blizzard or even an appearance by some 'side' characters, like Madam Masque or the Controller - hell I'd just like to see him fight some guys with more powers or even some random goons, show him be a hero more often than once a movie.

Granted Avengers will be the big team piece, but I'd still like to see Iron Man actually fight some lower level baddies before he encounters the Mandarin.

Re: Jon Favreau exits IRON MAN 3

I think the first two films had plenty of action scenes in it...although if you're talking about fight scenes that's something different. I think some fans can't distinguish between what is an action scene and what is a fight scene and lump them in together as one thing. I don't think we need Tony fighting more bad guys. Favs said before he left that the Mandarin would most likely be the villain in the third film and he was looking for a way to do him properly.

Neill Blomkamp (District 9), Ben Stiller (Tropic Thunder), Shane Black (Kiss, Kiss, Bang, Bang), Peter Berg (The Rundown), Duncan Jones (Moon) and Paul Verhoeven (RoboCop) have all been short-listed to replace Favreau.
Jones would be interesting... assuming IM3 doesn't get in the way of the next project set in the Jonesverse.
