Jon Favreau to join the RevolutionBy Marc Bernardin, Source: Blastr.com

J.J. Abrams and Eric Kripke’s it’s-the-end-of-the-world-as-we-know-it sci-fi series Revolution is picking up steam: They’ve just nabbed Cowboys and Aliens’ Jon Favreau to direct the pilot, the first drama pilot he’s ever shot.

Iron Man 3 will be a sequel to Avengers, Thor and Captain America

Iron Man is the One!!

Jon Favreau sees his third outing with Robert Downey Jr.’s Tony Stark—due out on May 3, 2013—to be the one Marvel film to bind them all.

Even though Favreau’s not entirely sure what directors Joss Whedon, Kenneth Branagh and Joe Johnston have in store for The Avengers, Thor or Captain America—”I’ve talked to Kenneth Branagh … I had a conversation with Joss Whedon in passing, giving him my two cents about the film”—Favreau believes that he’s poised to put a bow on this phase of Marvel’s movies
