"Iron Man 2" director Jon Favreau said that he won't be directing "The Avengers" in an interview with MTV News that I posted yesterday. Now in a new part from that interview we get a little insight into Tony Stark's upcoming return to the big screen.
Bouncing around a golf cart during the "Couples Retreat" press junket in Bora Bora, Favreau told MTV Movies editor Joshua Horowitz that the primary relationship driving "Iron Man 2" is still Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) and Pepper Potts (Gwyneth Paltrow)—despite the introduction of Scarlett Johansson's Russian superspy, Natasha Romanoff (a.k.a Black Widow).
Favreau also mentions some other complicated relationships in the film including Stark's friend Rhodey (played by Don Cheadle) and two new villains (Mickey Rourke as Whiplash and Sam Rockwell as Justin Hammer).
Hopefully we will get a trailer for this film online by the end of this year.
More news to come! Catch ya' later!
