the_avengersJon Favreau has announced that he won’t be directing, The Avengers, a film about the Marvel Comics dream-team of superheroes.

It’s difficult to believe that many comic-book fans could resist the temptation to helm a film which brings together Iron Man, Captain America, Nick Fury and Thor – but he seems to have managed it.

“It’s going to be hard, because I was so involved in creating the world of Iron Man,” he said with lament. “With Avengers you’re going to be introducing some supernatural aspects because of Thor.”

He later went on to offer a thinly veiled warning to the as-yet-unconfirmed director.

“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.”
