Recently, actor and director Jon Favreau has been making rounds for his CGI live-action remake of The Lion King. However, he’s not new to making headlines within the Marvel universe.
The actor admits that even he “didn’t always know what was going on” in the expanse of Marvel’s cinematic universe. It looks like actress Gwyneth Paltrow isn’t the only one who finds it hard to keep track. Earlier last month, the actress completely forgot that she was in Spider-Man Homecoming, much to the disappointment of Tom Holland.
In the Spider-Man: Far From Home Los Angeles premiere Favreau told Variety:
“With the Marvel things, they have so many films happening at the same time and all of them interweave with one another. Oftentimes you’re not exactly sure what’s happening, even me. I’m an executive producer on ‘Endgame,’ I didn’t always know what was going on.” We’re pretty sure fans don’t either. Unless they’re the die-hard type who painstakingly analyzes every bit of Marvel info.
Favreau also talked about the development of his character Happy Hogan’s relationship with Holland’s Spider-Man.
“In the beginning, I was kind of annoyed by him and I was a babysitter assigned to look after him in the background of what was happening in ‘Civil War,’ but now after ‘Infinity War’ and ‘Endgame’ all the characters have been through a lot emotionally,” he told Variety. “I like what this relationship has evolved to, and, of course, working with an actor like Tom Holland with scenes that are both funny and emotional is great because I don’t get to act like this that often.”
