Jon Favreau is Heading Back to Marvel

Jon Favreau has revealed that he is returning to the Marvel universe.

The Iron Man director, whose current movie The Jungle Book has just been released in the UK, has told Digital Spy that he will work as executive producer on Avengers: Infinity War parts 1 and 2.

“I’m going to be executive producing the Avengers films with the Russo brothers, which I’m very excited about.”

“I talk to them about it all the time. I’ve worked both in front of and behind the camera with Marvel and I really love what they’re doing right now. It’s a really exciting time to be over there. I’ve seen a rough cut of Civil War and it’s fantastic. We’re constantly looking for things to do together. And now I’m freed up.”

Favreau directed Iron Man and its sequel, however declined to return for the third outing, and admitted that the option to work on other things was the main reason behind backing away from the third film.

“I’m actually surprised I don’t feel that way about The Jungle Book already, but with Iron Man, I’d done two back to back. My time was completely monopolised for those years and I wanted allowed to explore other things. 

“Part of the fun of having a successful movie is you get a lot of say on what your next project is. Sometimes you want to leave yourself open to other opportunities instead of another four or five years maybe working on that franchise.”

Favreau has already signed on to direct the sequel to The Jungle Book, which took over $103 million on it’s opening weekend.

Avengers: Infinity War will be released on 4 May 2018.
