John Favreau not returning for Iron Man 3!

Posted on 15 December 2010 by TH3 No08

This just in, John Favreau has informed Marvel Studios that he will not be returning to direct Iron Man 3. Favreau Tweeted yesterday that he was leaving Iron Man3 to work on the film Magic Kingdom, but that hasn’t stopped the internet from speculation that he has left as a result of the ongoing cost cutting moves regarding the feature film budgets over at Marvel.

I for one hate to see him go. He’s brought a level of excitement to these adaptations rarely seen in comic book movies. I think the biggest thing is he respects the source material and up to this point hasn’t let the studio bully him into making a corny toy fest (i’m looking at you Fantastic Four).

No one seems to be lined up to replace him as of yet but i wouldn’t be surprised to see a music video director or someone with a real visual flair to step in and take over the franchise. It’s yet to be seen if Robert Downey Jr. will be returning as Iron Man after The Avengers, but if he does I expect he will have a large hand to play in who replaces Favreau.

The noob has spoken…

Cowboys And Aliens Scene Descriptions And Plot Details Revealed!

Posted on 14 December 2010 by Christian

40 minutes of footage was shown to HitFix, and here is what they had to say about the movie, it’s characters, the opening scene and a few previously unrevealed plot details…

At the annual “Butt-Numb-A-Thon” event hosted by Aint It Cool News, the first 40 minutes of Iron Man 2 director Jon Favreau’s next comic book movie was shown, and here’s what they had to say about the footage they were lucky enough to see. As you’ll see, the reaction was extremely positive, and while the details below arent too spoiler-ific, they are pretty intriguing!

Jon Favreau, Bob Orci, and Ron Howard came rolling in, and they brought a full 40 minutes of footage with them for next summer’s “Cowboys and Aliens.” I’d actually seen this at a recent visit to the editing room, just before the release of the trailer for the movie, and I’m impressed with it.

Starting with Daniel Craig waking up alone in the desert, confused, his wrist wrapped in some sort of mechanical device, no memory of who he is or how he got there, the film moves quickly. Even before the main title comes up, we get a look at Craig in action, taking out a group of armed men, even tackling one of them off a horse.

Clancy Brown, Keith Carradine, Sam Rockwell, and Adam Beach all show up in interesting roles as townspeople who have to struggle with the iron fist of Col. Dollarhyde, played with appropriate grizzle by Harrison Ford, and his idiot son Percy, played by Paul Dano. One of the best things about the footage is the near-constant abuse that Dano takes, and I hope it’s a running thread in the film.

Craig and Ford both come across as big giant alpha males, and the idea of the two of them having to work together to sort out the mystery of what happened to Craig and what happened to the townspeople that are abducted in the action set piece that wrapped up the sequence we saw. I like the slow burn in the 40 minutes we saw, the emphasis on character, the Western tropes played just right.

Olivia Wilde plays a local woman who seems to know something about Craig and his troubles, and we saw some footage that hinted at a larger mystery involving her. Favreau seems cautiously optimistic about the film so far, excited by what he’s doing, and Ron Howard couldn’t have been more effusive in his praise right before it played. They were smart to show an uninterrupted chunk of the movie like this, because it demonstrates exactly what the tone is, and how the genre mash-up will work when it’s finished.

Cowboys and Aliens is set to be released on July 29, 2011!
