I have no idea how fun Comic-Con was this year obviously, but it seems like at least Jon Favreau had a blast. I imagine you would to if you were surrounded by thousands of people singing your praises and soiling themselves when you show them clips of War Machine from Iron Man 2.
It’s been tough to get any real statements out of the production besides quick, sharp twitter updates that amount to “filming with RDJ” and “eating sandwich at craft service table. lolz,” but luckily, a hard-hitting journalist broke through the ranks at the Con to nail the Jon Favreau to the floor about what the status of The Avengers is.

Certainly tip-toeing around the prospect, but it sounds like if someone asked him outright if he wanted the job, he’d answer in the affirmative in a heart beat. It’s fairly obvious, though. The man looks like he has an immense amount of fun working on this stuff (which certainly shines through in the product), so it seems only natural that he’d want to direct when all the Marvel heroes come together.
It’s also interesting that he’s been able to see, or is in the loop on, the Thor concept art. Kenneth Branagh seemed like a strange choice, but I wonder if more people will give him the benefit of the doubt now that he has Favreau’s seal of approval – however tacit it might be.
