He added, "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."
Addressing the quality of the film overall, Favreau complimented the work of directors Joe and Anthony Russo: "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."
