Who's hero enough?
With Jon Favreau officially moving on to 'The Magic Kingdom,' Marvel's going to need to hire a filmmaker to bring 'Iron Man 3' to the bigscreen. Early talk has the film positioned as a sequel to 'Thor' and 'Captain America' and 'The Avengers,' the film where Marvel will start to lay the groundwork for whatever big story they're going to tell next with these characters. That's a lot of groundwork for any film to cover, so they're going to need someone who can play well with Robert Downey Jr. and the rest of this ever-growing ensemble.
But mainly Downey.
After all, he's the star of the show, the lynchpin of the Marvel Universe so far. His charisma set the tone that seems to be the guiding influence on each new film as they come together. Who has the cred to make the geek nation happy up front, keep Downey happy on the set, and deliver a movie that keeps all the various Marvel franchises chugging along while actually making something good at the same time?
Who is hero enough for that job? HitFix has come up with a list of possible men and women for the job. See what you think.
