Jon Favreau has confessed he loved the reaction to the leaked 'Avengers: Age of Ultron' trailer but insisted he had no knowledge of plans for an 'Iron Man 4'

Jon Favreau loved the reaction to the 'Avengers: Age of Ultron' trailer.

The first look at the upcoming sequel was leaked last month and the 'Iron Man' director claims that while it would be a shame if material that wasn't finished was released, he thinks it proves how popular Marvel films have become.

He said: "Well, by the time I knew it happened, it had already been released officially.

"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 dropped as director and made executive producer on 'Iron Man 3' - also insisted he has no knowledge of whether or not there ill be a fourth instalment in the superhero franchise.

He added to Access Hollywood: "I don't know what's going on with 'Iron Man 4'. You have to talk to Robert [Downey Jr.] or [Marvel Studios president] Kevin Feige."

Ultron, an artificial intelligence created by Tony Stark (Downey Jr) to keep the peace, goes rogue and decides to kill off the Avengers. Barely logical but impressively entertaining superhero fun; Johansson and Olsen are central to the action and Whedon's script is strong, snappy and irreverent, but it doesn't have much…
