After the recent announcement of his new film, it is now confirmed that Jon Favreau won't be helming an upcoming superhero film. MTV Movies Blog caught up with Iron Man 2 director Jon Favreau who confirmed what many suspected: that he won't be directing The Avengers. Here's an excerpt from the article.
"They'll have to [find a different director], because I'm not going to be available," he explained. "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 The Avengers you're going to be introducing some supernatural aspects because of Thor," he continued. "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."
Along with confirming that The Incredible Hulk star Edward Norton won't be appearing in Iron Man 2 and that Favreau won't be directing The Avengers the filmmaker shared some thoughts on his approach to making the Marvel movies all tie together.
"We want to reinforce a lot of the stuff we started to tip off," Favreau told MTV News. "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," he explained. "If we decide and commit too early, the secret always gets out."
