Jon Favreu and Iron Man

From Friends, Buzz Lightyear of Star Command and 2003’s Daredevil, Jon Favreu has long been a familiar face in the movies. But he’s gaining notoriety now as the director behind the long awaited Iron Man movie, the latest in Marvel’s swing of comics-to-movie adaptations.
Comic-Con San Diego yielded a lot of information for a lot of movies and games and comics, and even through all the hubbabaloo of the year’s biggest comic convention, the actor-come-director found time to sit down and chat with CBR News. The whole interview can be found here, but I’ll just select a few of the gems from the interview that will make your day.

"There is a lot of speculation about cameos in the movie and most of them are completely unfounded. As far as Sam Jackson, as far as I'm concerned there is only one Nick Fury and that is David Hasselhoff."

"It's going to be PG-13," Favreau confirmed. "That being said, my son, who just turned six, I would very comfortably bring to the film. There are PG-13 movies like Van Helsing that I have to turn off when my kid's watching. Even Daredevil was a little tricky to show him because it felt very violent at times, and so was the character as well.

"With Iron Man, I wanted to have something in which the action was appropriate for all audiences, but I didn't want to make it a PG family fun film because it was Tony Stark and Tony Stark likes to screw, he likes to drink, he likes to party, he likes to drive fast cars and Iron Man gets rough and tumble. It's about a guy who's ambushed in a convoy, in our case in Afghanistan. So there's a way to treat that material where it's not cleaned up too much. For me, I will enjoy watching it but I wouldn't feel irresponsible about letting my kid see it, but it's my kid, I don't know if you'll feel the same way."
