Even though Favreau’s not entirely sure what directors Joss Whedon, Kenneth Branagh and Joe Johnston have in store for The Avengers, Thor or Captain America—”I’ve talked to Kenneth Branagh … I had a conversation with Joss Whedon in passing, giving him my two cents about the film”—Favreau believes that he’s poised to put a bow on this phase of Marvel’s movies

There’s a whole lot of awesome coming down the pipe as far as genre movies go. But summer 2011 will see a giant, megabudget film released almost every weekend—Jon Favreau calls it Omaha Beach. What’ll happen when the blood hits the multiplex?

Jon Favreau killed with the first Iron Man movie. So why isn’t he directing The Avengers? And why was Iron Man 2 so … well … disappointing? Turns out both of those questions have the same answer: Blame Marvel! Thoughts?
