Jon Favreau applauds portrayal of Spider-Man and Iron Man in Captain America: Civil War


Captain America: Civil War has been receiving great reviews, and now we have Iron Man director Jon Favreau chiming in on what he thought about the film starring Chris Evans as Steve Rogers. During an interview with IGN, he revealed that he loved the portrayal of Tony Stark and enjoyed every second of Spider-Man.

“I think Spider-Man made me smile every second the character was on the screen,” he said. “I was so pleased with the tone of the film in general, but those sequences specifically, and I just loved the way they introduced the character. I love the version of Tony Stark I saw, especially in those scenes. As somebody who was part of the beginning of the screen persona of Tony Stark, I thought that this was really impressive and a wonderful expansion of that character.”

Favreau then talks about how the film made him smile and how he thinks the Russo brothers are the men for the job.

“I just felt – as a filmmaker who had been part of establishing this universe – I thought that it was in really good hands with these guys and I was pleased. And as an audience member I was just smiling, and it’s nice to smile your way through a film. The audience is in for a treat, and I didn’t even see it finished so I’m sure it’s gotten even better.”

Captain America: Civil War hits theaters on May 6, 2016.
