At a press junket for the box office hit Couples Retreat, star and Iron Man director John Favreau talked with MTV about his involvement with The Avengers film, and the possibility of him directing the big feature.

MTV Reports:

Along with confirming that “Incredible Hulk” star Edward Norton won’t be appearing in “Iron Man 2” and that Favreau won’t be directing “The Avengers,” the filmmaker shared some thoughts on his approach to making the Marvel movies all tie together.

“We want to reinforce a lot of the stuff we started to tip off,” Favreau told MTV News. “‘The Avengers’ is a much larger concern for Marvel and Kevin Feige, who runs Marvel. They’re going to be doing ‘Thor’ and ‘Captain America,’ and the way we might start to tease those things in this movie, some of it is stuff that we’ve discussed [and] some of the stuff you do last-minute as you figure out how that stuff is coming together.”

“It’s an evolving, amorphous thing,” he explained. “If we decide and commit too early, the secret always gets out.”
