So Downey will get... Ben Stiller?

I hope RDJ doesn't pick Justin Theroux to write AND direct this film.

Edgar Wright would be a good choice, but I have a hard time seeing him as wanting to shoehorn a bunch of stuff into the film if he didn't feel like it belonged there naturally.


Favreau's personal confirmation:
Jon Favreau wrote:
It's true, I'm directing Magic Kingdom, not Iron Man 3. I've had a great run with Marvel and wish them the best.

Well that's it, he's out for good. I guess Iron Man 4 will be a reboot with a younger Tony and it will be influenced by the "Ultimates" version >_>

Re: Jon Favreau exits IRON MAN 3

Though I can completely understand wanting to do something different, going from Downey and Iron Man to a Disneyland movie sounds like a serious step down to moi, but, whatever floats his boat...

Favreau is a family man and apparently really enjoyed making the family-friendly comedy Elf (which was also very successful), so perhaps he's going back to a type of movie that he thinks could be creatively fresh yet simultaneously harken back to something familiar that has worked for him in the past.

Agreed. He also made "Zathura". He's not really picky. He does everything

Scifi
Family

Re: Jon Favreau exits IRON MAN 3

Yep he has a wide range of interests it seems as a director. Personally I'm looking forward to seeing "Cowboys and Aliens" next year and "Magic Kingdom" seems like it could be interesting. He's a little like Robert Rodriguez in the sense that he's not above making kid focused films.

Re: Jon Favreau exits IRON MAN 3

To my understanding Favreau was instrumental in getting RDJ as Tony and to establishing the tone of the Ironman franchise. And I like both of those things a lot. But there was something about his action direction that just felt a bit off, like he wasn't entirely comfortable with mega-budget SFX stuff. So I am not totally opposed to the idea of a new director for IM3.

I'd love to see Paul Verhoeven get a crack at IM3.

Alfonso Cuaron (for just about anything)
Jonathan Frakes (needs the work)
Stephen Sommers (needs good work)

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.

Re: Jon Favreau exits IRON MAN 3

Good choices, all of them. Sad to Favreu go. But just as the comic has taken on new writers, a new director isn't necessarily a bad thing.

We'll just wait and see.
