Jon Favreau Leaving Iron Man Franchise

Director Jon Favreau won’t return for a third installment of the Iron Man franchise.  My knee gut reaction is to be upset, especially because he’s decided to direct a Disney theme park ride movie, The Magic Kingdom.  But, ultimately, I don’t think this will be that big of a deal.  As long as Robert Downey Jr. returns and there is some continuity, I think Marvel will be able to hire a director, like say a Joss Whedon (they won’t he’s doing The Avengers but he’s just an example), who loves the character and can step in and deliver a solid third flick.
