The key thing to understand is that Marvel is CHEAP thrifty and they would rather give opportunities to obviously talented but underused directors and actors than spend a fortune on someone that everyone knows is good.

Plus they have a pre-existing relationship with Joss on Runaways and Astonishing X-Men.

A lot of what Marvel is doing is convincing people to do their films for less (and signing them to multiple film deals) because being in a "cool" comic-book movie that makes a ton of dough will help their careers.

Robert Downey Junior being the prime example.

Why I had the channel flipped to PBS to find this announcement, I'll never know. However, on Saturday, 11/25/06, PBS Channel 2 from Boston at 7 PM Eastern will be broadcasting The Electric Company's Greatest Hits and Bits.
