Jon Favreau will NOT direct Marvel’s Avengers movie

Iron Man director Jon Favreau has revaeled that he will not be directing Marvel’s Avengers movie.

Speaking to MTV, the director suggested that he is too busy to helm the superhero epic:

“They’ll have to [find a different director], because I’m not going to be available,” he said. “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.”
