Everything about this interview confuses me. Jon Favreau is leaving the Iron Man franchise in order to make a Magic Kingdom family film. And that sounds TERRIBLE. But he has such big ideas and so much passion for the project! Usually when someone uses the phrase “family fare,” I flee in terror, but now Favreau’s making Magic Kingdom, Fincher’s making 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, and Guillermo’s making Haunted Mansion. And I LIKE these directors. I also adore Favreau’s earlier foray into family flicks, Elf, but I’m depressed at the prospect of Iron Man 3 now, when I had such high hopes after Iron Man 2 (reviewed here) for its becoming the trilogy for our generation. Well, at least we have Toy Story.
So…I dunno. I’m all aflutter. Will someone please tell me how to feel about this?
