You Did A Great Job, Now Get Out

It's official:  Jon Favreau will not be directing Iron Man 3.

One source is saying Favreau left because, with all the tying in with other Marvel properties like Avengers, Captain America, Thor, etc., he wasn't sure what to do with the movie and decided to bail (some of the SHIELD stuff in 2 felt tacked on, so I can certainly buy studio interference).

The other is saying that Favreau is now too expensive for the cost-conscious Disney film company, and he was encouraged to step aside.

It's kind of a shame that Fav's encounters with the comic book world have been so bad.  Don't forget the Iron Man comic book series that he quit in the middle of because he was sick of the fanboys online bitching about what he was doing.  And leave us not forget, he took a second-tier Marvel character and made him a huge public persona.

Favs is now doing Magic Kingdom instead.  Between a new director and a muddled idea of incorporating EVERYTHING in the Marvel universe, I'm not sure IM3 is going to be all that great anymore.  I know I'll miss Fav's steady hand at the helm.

The Marvel Universe becomes a more disappointing dimension every time I read about it. If this disappointment continues, I might actually start reading, dare I say it...D.C. comic books.

Alas, poor Yorick.

This Is A Joke. Honest.
You shouldn't think about reading DC comics. You should think about reading Sine Timore comics! Like Stress Puppy, about a middle manager! Like Sound Waves, about a girl who becomes friends with a mermaid! Like Head Above Water, about a magic user who loses her powers and has to rebuild her life!

...tis the season for shameless whoring. ;-)
