Iron Man 3 is the first of the Iron Man movies that Jon Favreau has not directed, despite the fact that he still appears in the film as Happy Hogan. Jon has now opened up about not directing Iron Man 3, saying that he feels that Shane Black has done a fantastic job on the film.

Favreau explained, “When you first walk on to the set it is strange. To see all my friends and my cast members there but Shane [Black] is someone who I've known for a while and Robert [Downey Jr.] knows for a very long time and I've done two, back-to-back. It's weird being on that set as an actor and producer and it's a little surreal, it feels like a dream. It's like when you go back to your old school in your dream or something.”
He added, “But I have to say, I've had so much fun and Shane's doing such a fantastic job. And I'm sort of getting used to the idea, having watched Robert on-screen in The Avengers and having just been an executive producer on that, not directing. I've become comfortable with it and actually it was good set-up and preparation for Revolution because now I'm watching dallies of scenes directed by other directors with the same characters that I just worked with.

Jon continued, “So, I think that's part of what it means to be a filmmaker now. Whether you're dealing with pilots or franchises, the biggest contribution is when you come in and discover that cast, you find the right pitch for the show and then you create the world and hopefully other creative people can come in and build upon that. That's been very rewarding, so it's more like being a proud grandfather where you get to play with the baby but you don't have to change the diapers.”
As well as starring Jon Favreau and Robert Downey Jr., Iron Man 3 also stars Don Cheadle, Gwyneth Paltrow, Guy Pearce and Ben Kingsley. Iron Man 3 is directed by Shane Black, based on the screenplay that he developed with Drew Pearce and is set to be released on April 26 in the UK and May 3 in the US.
