Favreau had previously worked with the star of Revolutions when he directed the pilot episode of the series. Hirshberg went on to describe what brought Activision to enlist Favreau and Esposito, saying in regards to Favreau, “what he was able to do with ‘Iron Man’ is a masterful mix of hardcore geek cred with mass pop cultural appeal. Those two are hard to bring together. He’s a master of both.”

 

The game will be released later this year.
