Favs directs Avengers?

03.13.2009

Jon Favreau, Robert Downey Jr., Jack Black Jon Favreau has been rumored to be directing the upcoming AVENGERS film for a while now. Well, not so much rumored as him saying over and over how great it'd be if he directed the flick. Well, it seems he may not just be blowing smoke up our asses as a mole inside Marvel recently revealed to Harry and co. over at AICN the following:

Avengers is delayed a year [Read about it HERE] because of financing issues but also because the plan is for Favreau to helm it. Everybody here loves the guy and he wants to do it, but it would have been impossible for him to do before the date change given his Iron Man 2 commitments. Also partly the reason why he agreed to do the Stark sequel on such an accelerated schedule was so he could get given first dibs on this. It would still be a punishing schedule for him, so hes not firmly confirmed yet, but he is certainly the presumptive director at this point.

Well, the Favs certainly knows how to bring kick ass comic book adaptations to the big screen but doing IRON MAN 2 and AVENGERS so close together may take a toll on the Favs. What do you guys think? Read the rest of what AICN's spy had to say over HERE.

Extra Tidbit: Favreau is an alumnus of Chicago's ImprovOlympic troupe.
