French TV sta­tion Canal have posted an extended 7 minute behind the scenes look at Iron Man 2.

Jon Favreau will not be directing The Avengers October 16th, 2009

From the bumpy golf buggy, Jon Favreau shared some Avengers infor­ma­tion with MTV. First up, he will not be direct­ing The Avengers movie. Sec­ondly, Ed Nor­ton will not have a cameo appear­ance in Iron Man 2.

“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.”

“They’ll have to [find a dif­fer­ent direc­tor], because I’m not going to be avail­able,” he explained. “It’s some­thing I’m being the exec­u­tive pro­ducer on, so I’ll def­i­nitely have input and a say.”

“It’s going to be hard, because I was so involved in cre­at­ing the world of Iron Man and Iron Man is very much a tech-based hero, and then with ‘Avengers’ you’re going to be intro­duc­ing some super­nat­ural aspects because of Thor,” he con­tin­ued. “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.”

“That’s why it’s good that you have the guys from Mar­vel like Kevin Feige, who knows the books well and has been involved with the mak­ing of all the movies, and he’ll be very involved with ‘Thor’ and ‘Cap,’” said Favreau. “You need some­body who has the per­spec­tive of all the dif­fer­ent fran­chises to bring them together. I have the myopic vision of just know­ing and lov­ing Iron Man.“

This opens up the ques­tion, who should direct the Avengers movie?
