Jon Favreau to Direct "The Avengers"?

Posted: March 13th, 2009 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Jon Favreau to Direct "The Avengers"?Submit Comment
"The Avengers" release date was recently pushed back by Marvel from July 15th, 2011 by almost a year to May 4th, 2012. The schedule change gave some room for "Thor" to be squeezed in, but apparently that wasn't the only reason for the move.

AICN is reporting that Marvel is having some financing issues, but more importantly, the studio wants "Iron Man" helmer Jon Favreau to direct "The Avengers." Without the date change, it would be impossible for Favreau to finish "Iron Man 2" and still have time to take on the multi-superhero film.

This doesn't mean that Favreau has already negotiated a deal, it just means that he if he wants to take on "The Avengers," he will have first dibs. Right now, it looks like Favreau will end up taking the job. He has expressed interest to do so and is already getting ready to go into production on "Iron Man," which is set to hit theaters on May 7th, 2010.

Great, after watchin' Iron Man, we knew he could do great superheroe movies without going "dark" or some sh*t.

Didn't we know this? I mean is this really news? I thought we were told this back after IronMan 1 came out.

^^^ You don't remember Marvel screwing him around for like a month after Iron Man came out? They weren't even going to bring him back for the IM sequel!

Who would have thought that Favreau would be the go to guy on comic book action movies in general not to mention the biggest (arguably) of them all? Good for him..
