At the recent BAFTA Los Angeles Jaguar Britannia Awards, Jon Favreau, director of the Iron Man films and executive producer of Marvel Avengers: Age of Ultron was asked about his thoughts on the trailer being leaked.
"Well, by the time I knew it happened, it had already been released officially," Favreau said to Liz Hernandez of Access Hollywood. "I remember back during Iron Man, footage snuck out from [San Diego] Comic-Con. I think what it shows is that there is tremendous enthusiasm for it, and fortunately it was ready to go out officially. You know, things don't always happen the way you want them to in the information age, but I really love the reaction that the trailer got and I think it's wonderful.
Favreau, who was on hand to present an award to Robert Downey Jr. was also asked about the possibility of another Iron Man sequel.
"I don't know what's going with Iron Man 4,” he said. “You have to talk to Robert or [Marvel Studios president] Kevin Feige."
