Stark Expo In Iron Man 2 Will Have A Role In Other Avengers Related Movies

Jay Cochran - April 23, 2010
The LATimes sat down with Iron Man 2 director Jon Favreau who revealed some details about the Iron Man movie along with its impact on future Marvel movies like Captain America.

According to Favreau "The Expo dates back to the 1930s, but the last one was in 1974 when Tony's father was still alive and Tony was just a kid," Favreau said. "Now Tony is reintroducing this concept of the Expo at the start of the film and it's presented a part of peace dividend -- now that Iron Man is keeping the world 'safer,' this is Tony's way of turning guns to butter and changing the conversation about the future."

As far as how the Expo will play a part in the upcoming Captain America movie, this is what Favreau had to say, but beware this is potential SPOILER info:

The filmmaker said that the fabricated history of the Stark Expo will echo in other Marvel films, too. "It does figure in to the other films because in the Captain America movie you're going to see the early one, which I think is a lot of fun," Favreau said. "They're going to have a reference to Tony's father, Howard Stark, played by John Slattery, and his earlier Expo. But I don't want to say more than that."
