Marvel To Drop Favreau?
I get it, yes, it’s a business. But c’mon man, I think that one of the biggest reasons that the Iron Man series has done so well is because it’s been directed by Mr. Favreau. Now that both of the Iron Man movies have been so successful, the price tag for Jon Favreau to direct the third has gotten steep. Now it’s to the point where Marvel is debating making a Favreau-less Iron Man 3.
From the rumor that we’ve read at New York Magazine, it seems that Marvel is planning on making a “confusing and packed vision of the third film as a tactic to provoke Favreau into leaving the project”. It scares me that Marvel Studios forgets so easily who it was that helped put them on the map. Just shell out the fucking money and let the man make a great film. Something tells me you’ll need it after the Avengers movie finally comes out.
