Jon Favreau says no more Iron man until Avengers movie

Jon Favreau has revealed that Iron Man will not reappear before the Avengers movie.

According to the director,  Downey Jr will not reprise his role in a cameo in any of the intervening Marvel Studios films.

“[Downey’s] not in Thor, he’s not in [Captain America: The First Avenger] which are the two movies for next summer,” the Iron Man 2 director said in an recent interview on radio station KROQ.

“I’m not sure where The Avengers goes. There is no shooting draft written yet. It’s going to be a big undertaking for Marvel to actually incorporate what happened in Iron Man, Iron Man 2, Thor, Captain America and The Hulk.

“All that has to inform one unified vision in The Avengers. It’s a very exciting prospect. And certainly, Tony Stark is not going to be involved in any of the movies until that one.”

Avengers will be released in 2012.
