While we’re all waiting for Iron Man 2, director Jon Favreau is already talking Iron Man 3 with Digital Spy.
He said: “There’s an Iron Man 3. Here’s how I know. When they make the option deals, they include Iron Man 3. So I know they’re planning on 3. Whether that would be before or after Avengers, they’ve announced that Avengers is next but they pushed back The Avengers once, which I thought was encouraging.”
Shouldn’t come as a surprise, since almost every super hero franchise that makes it to the first sequel goes on to see a third. Let’s just hope that quality goes the distance, unlike X-Men.
