Iron Man 3 Gets A Writer!

They've got a writer!

Now that Jon Favreau has opted out taking the reigns for Iron Man 3, Shane Black was hired to direct the flick, and now, it's been revealed that Drew Pearce has been brought on to pen the screenplay!

Nice! Apparently, he has worked on the script for a now-defunct adaptation of the comic series Runaways, so at least he's familiar with the Marvel comic world!

Here's hoping that this one will correct the missteps that were taken with Iron Man 2!

Fingers crossed!

Iron Man 3 Gets A Director!

We guess it's officially happening, then!

Although Jon Favreau announced that he would not direct the third film in the Iron Man franchise, it appears that Marvel Studios may have found his replacement in Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang director - and Robert Downey, Jr. collaborator - Shane Black!

Sources close to production have revealed Black is in final negotiations to helm the project, although it's unclear whether he, Favreau, or someone else will take on the role as the writer!

Inneresting! Black has a history of writing in the action genre, but we hope that he can bring the wit from the first two!

What do U think?? Are U excited for Iron Man 3??

Jon Favreau Confirms Leaving Marvel For Disney, No More Iron Man From Him!

Filed under: Film FlickersTwitter

We knew it was happening, but it's still unfortunate!

Unfortunately, Jon Favreau will not direct Iron Man 3 for Marvel Studios. The direct and the studio just did not have the same vision.

Favreau Tweeted:

“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.”

Wonder if the third installment will be any good without him?! And we'd be curious to know who will replace him.

Thoughts????

Jon Favreau Won't Be Directing Iron Man 3

Filed under: Film Flickers

You could call it artistic differences or you could call it a devise plot. Either way, Jon Favreau is OUT!

Sources have been informed that Jon, who helmed the first two Iron Man flicks, has told Marvel Studios he won't direct the third movie. The story that is circulating the inner circles of the project is that Marvel was insistent on putting a lot of other characters into the third movie in the wake of The Avengers. In truth, Jon had mentioned in a recent interview that he felt there wasn't much "clarity" in the movie. He added:

“In theory, Iron Man 3 is going to be a sequel or continuation of Thor, Hulk, Captain America and Avengers. This whole world … I have no idea what it is. I don’t think they do either, from conversations I’ve had with those guys.”

So the studio wanted to pack in as many stars as possible to maybe bank on their names. That's one thought.

Another is that Marvel intentionally pushed for that kind of story knowing it would piss Jon off, forcing him to leave the project and save the studio millions of dollars. Some industry insiders think that this might have been the case, as Jon comes at a pretty hefty price.

That's one pretty shifty tactic… but it seems to have worked!

But will the movie be, pardon the pun, without the man behind the mask? Can U think of anyone else who might be able to step in for Jon and be as good in the directors chair?

Jon Favreau And Marvel On The Outs!

wenn5146501jf.jpg

He's too expensive!

Apparently Jon Favreau, who directed Iron Man, wanted to direct Marvel's upcoming The Avengers, but the studio didn't want to pay for him!

Back when he signed on for Iron Man 2, negotiations were difficult because he was asking for more money. They ended up working out a deal, but now Marvel is going with Joss Whedon for The Avengers because his fee is cheaper.

Supposedly both Favreau and Robert Downey, Jr. were disappointed with Iron Man 2 because Marvel interfered a lot and made the movie a giant infomercial for The Avengers.

Well, we think Joss can handle the responsibility!

What do U think?
