'Iron Man' director Jon Favreau says he's looking forward to Marvel's 'Avengers' movie and even hopes to be considered to direct it. He also told MTV Movies Blog that the film will not follow the 'Justice League' model of recasting all the superhero roles, but will rather build from the solo films.
“I wonder if the tone of ‘The Incredible Hulk’ is going to be similar or different than [’Iron Man’],” Favreau questioned. “And ‘Captain America’ is a twinkle in Marvel’s eye right now. And ‘Thor’ and ‘Ant Man.’
“[But] in the case of Marvel they’re pretty clear on wanting to do it with the actors who’ve established the roles or to not do it at all. That’s what they’ve said to me,” he continued. “I think it’s a good idea if you use the characters established in the other franchises that then come together for an event. I don’t think they would do it like they’re doing ‘Justice League’ where it’s a whole different set of actors and a whole different take on the world.”
