Jon Favreau Considers Directing The Avengers

Jon Favreau, director of the hit Iron Man, has the enviable dilemma of having to choose between directing  Iron Man’s sequel or The Avengers. The two films are slated to be released a year apart, 2010 and 2011, respectively. Which does Favreau want to do? “Avengers' seems to be the more fun one,” he stated at the world premiere of The Incredible Hulk.

The Avengers will feature the Hulk, Tony Stark and Captain America, which apparently tickles Favreau’s fancy. But he’s got competition. Well, kind of. Louis Leterrier, director of the new Hulk movie, has made no secret of his interest.

 I’d love to do it. It would be so amazing. I absolutely love Spider-Man. I think Sam Raimi is a genius and he’s the reason why I make movies.

Ok, well, no comment on the whole Sam Raimi is a genius bit. I think that after the humiliating debacle of Spider-Man 3, it's hard to verify Raimi's sanity, or even his ability to wipe his own…well, uh, no comment.

For my money, the writer and star of Swingers (arguably the best movie ever written about single guys) should be given priority over the director of Danny the Dog. And at the risk of making a bad prediction, I predict the new Hulk film is going to be as disappointing as Marvel’s decision to remake it in the first place – a mere five years after the first bungled attempt, no less.

As for Favreau, I hope he makes up his mind sooner than later. He’s come a long way since Elf, but the fate of Iron Man 2 and The Avengers hangs in the balance. To which film will he come to the rescue?
