“My insanity is thinking that somehow or another I was responsible for altering the course of things… There’s so many other factors in this… and the centerpiece of it all, Susan.”—Robert Downey Jr. (via minirosa)

With Jon Favreau having been fucked over by Marvel — and he and RDJ having started the franchise together — it kinda doesn’t feel right to have somebody else ending it.
Favreau left because the IM3 that Marvel wants him to do is a sequel to all of the Marvel films that’ll come out prior to IM3. From his MTV interview last week:
Favreau: In theory, ‘Iron Man 3’ is going to be a sequel or continuation of ‘Thor,’ ‘Hulk,’ ‘Captain America’ and ‘Avengers,’” he said. “This whole world… I have no idea what it is. I don’t think they do either, from conversations I’ve had with those guys.”
So he really can’t do whatever he plans for IM3. He probably would feel incredibly stifled creatively. But really, only Favs and Marvel know the exact reasons :(
