"Iron Man 2" Will Not Set Up "The Avengers"

Posted: July 28th, 2009 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
"Iron Man 2" Will Not Set Up "The Avengers"Submit Comment
Director Jon Favreau has been rumored to helm the upcoming "The Avengers" film. He has never denied it, stating that it likely won't happen because of his busy schedule on the "Iron Man" franchise. Then, "The Avengers" was pushed back, making it more possible for Favreau to be involved.

At this point, not much is known, which is why Favreau is not trying to set anything up with his "Iron Man 2" movie. "We're working towards 'Avengers,' but by the same token we want to resolve this film and make ['Iron Man 2'] play on its own," he told MTV News. "It's not a serial. It's a self-contained film."

Favreau previously mentioned that "Iron Man 3" will definitely happen, but he has no idea if it will be before "The Avengers" or after. Either way, "Iron Man 2" is "not building towards a cliffhanger that's the next movie," he explained. "It's about wrapping up our story and making it a complete tale."

I thought there were seven major characters in Iron Man II just to set up for The Avengers. So instead, we get a Spider-Man 3 type of film out of Iron Man II, because they believe X-Men 2 and Spider-Man 2 automatically mean Marvel sequels are great. Bad idea Marvel.

Don't end it on a cliffhanger. The beauty of Superhero films is that there is almost endless sequel potential. Just have another villian appear in the sequel that Iron Man has to defeat.

iron man has to be in the avengers with him and the hulk in talks of not being in it, you should just not make the movie at all then

eh... this is all still up in the air I couldnt care at this point. We all saw what happend to Justice League, what makes this any different. Its hard to make a huge team film and it almost always leaves loose ends and will piss some fan boy/girl off one way or another because they got sloppy with some details here & there.

To some posts above. They would NEVER do an Avengers movie without Iron Man. He finances the Avengers. Downey would do it in a heartbeat.

and it shouldnt, The Captain American movie is the one that should and hopefully sets up the Avengers.

Well duh, there is Thor and Cap coming out in between Iron Man 2 and The Avengers! Cap will set up The Avengers, I would like to see them un-thawing him and the camera is pulling out revealing the others standing around him. End that with a heart monitor starting to beat and start the credits!

@acslaterson, that might be kool and all, but think about it, then they would have to devote more time to CA in the avengers movie, regarding his training, how he will deal with waking up after missing the last 60 years. He will have no idea whats going on. regarding politics, war, technology, and so forth. They need to devote at least 20 to 30 minutes of that back story to the CA movie. with it ending with him taking command of the avengers at the end of the CA movie. that way, when they open the avengers movie, they wont need to waste time explaining everything else. The avengers story should be about them, and have nothing to do with CA's past, thats what the CA movie is for. but thats just me... so please dont think im telling you your wrong or anything like that man. Cuz what u said is very possible...

@lost addict. well kenneth is doing THOR, and man he is the right guy to helm it. NOW the CA movie is something else. since no one is attached to yet it.
