Jungle Book director Jon Favreau is a big fan of Spider-Man in Captain America: Civil War.

He told IGN that he loves the chemistry between Tom Holland’s Spidey and Robert Downey Jr.’s Iron Man:

“I think Spider-Man made me smile every second the character was on the screen,” he said. “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.”

Favreau, who also directed Iron Man, believes that the Marvel movies are in “good hands” with the Russo brothers at the helm. 

“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.”


Favreau continues to executive produce on Marvel productions but you can see his latest film The Jungle Book in cinemas now.
