Jon Favreau Talks Iron Man 2, Avengers

The director of Iron Man 2 and producer of the Avengers talks about Marvel movies including the Avengers.

In an interview with MTV News , Jon Favreau talks about some of things he and Marvel are doing to incorporate the upcoming Avangers related films into Iron Man 2:

"We want to reinforce a lot of the stuff we started to tip off. ‘The Avengers’ is a much larger concern for
Marvel and Kevin Feige, who runs Marvel. They’re going to be doing
‘Thor’ and ‘Captain America,’ and the way we might start to tease those
things in this movie, some of it is stuff that we’ve discussed [and] some of the stuff you do last-minute as you figure out how that stuff
is coming together. It’s an evolving, amorphous thing. If we decide and commit too early, the secret always gets out."

Favreau also denies the possibility that he will direct the Avengers movie, and explains why that might be a good thing:

"They’ll have to [find a different director], because I’m not going
to be available. It’s something I’m being the executive
producer on, so I’ll definitely have input and a say. It’s going to be hard, because I was so involved in creating the
world of Iron Man and Iron Man is very much a tech-based hero, and then
with ‘Avengers’ you’re going to be introducing some supernatural
aspects because of Thor. 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. That’s why it’s good that you have the guys from Marvel like Kevin
Feige, who knows the books well and has been involved with the making
of all the movies, and he’ll be very involved with ‘Thor’ and ‘Cap,’ You need somebody who has the perspective of all the
different franchises to bring them together. I have the myopic vision
of just knowing and loving Iron Man."
