THE AVENGERS

Director Jon Favreau tells MTV News he will not be directing "The Avengers." Favreau says, "They'll have to [find another director], because I'm not going to be available." He also says the challenge of "The Avengers" is mixing the tech-based world of "Iron Man" with the supernatural elements "Thor" brings to the setting. "How you mix the two of those works very well in the comic books, but it's going to take a lot of thoughtfulness to make that all work and not blow the reality that we've created."

Release date: May 4th, 2012

SPIDER-MAN 5 & 6

While shooting of "Spider-Man 4" is still some months off, MTV News asks director Sam Raimi about the subsequent films. "You have to ask me in two-and-a-half years," the director says. "Every time I make one of the 'Spider-Man' movies, I have to ask myself, 'Is the character still intriguing to me? Do I love the character? Am I dying to tell the next story of Peter Parker and Spider-Man?'"

Release date: TBA

MAKE MINE MARVEL

If any of you in the great, wide Internet discover something awesome, disheartening, or just plain weird, let us know! Take credit, come up with a clever nickname, or go anonymous.
