Jon Favreau

Due to the successes of both Iron Man and The Incredible Hulk, it's been no surprise that Marvel is gunning to make an Avengers film. This is especially true for those of us who sat around a little longer to see the films' cameo appearances from the team. But one thing that has been unknown is the exact formation of the Avengers team, since well over 50 heroes have been included over time.

Well, we may be getting closer to a finalized line-up if Jon Favreau, director of Iron Man, is correct. He told USA Todayspeculation is correct about Captain America's origin getting cleared up in the Avengers film itself.

Favreau's comment should probably be taken with a grain of salt, as he's not signed on as the director for Avengersunknown the hero is, but Edgar Wright has been talking about his work on that feature for some time now.

Probably the best news from the story is that Favreau confirms he's on-board for the Iron Man sequel, since he wasn't locked into the project.
