Jon Favreau: Concerned About Iron Man 2 Release Date

by at . Comments

In his latest MySpace blog, director Jon Favreau expressed concern about the announced release date of Iron Man 2 (April 10, 2010):

I am concerned about the announced release date of April 2010. Neither Robert nor I were consulted about this and we are both concerned about how realistic the date is in light of the fact that we have no script, story or even writers hired yet.

This genre of movie is best when it is done thoughtfully and with plenty of preparation. It might be better to follow the [Batman Begins/The Dark Knight] three-year release pattern than to scramble for a date.

It is difficult because there are no Marvel 09 releases and they need product, but I also think we owe it to the fans to have a great version of Iron Man 2 and, at this point, we would have less time to make it than the first one.

Makes sense to us. And we'd prefer a quality movie over a rushed one. Let's hope those behind Iron Man 2 keep this in mind.
