so, Favreau is officially directing IRON MAN 2 now?

It had been up in the air, and I'd heard they were negotiating seriously (if belatedly) after he dropped hints that Marvel was being stupid in interviews. I hadn't heard anything more than the fact that Marvel had come back to the table and that Favreau was optimistic they'd work it out.

Now, at the base of an article about RDJ being cast as Sherlock Holmes for Guy Ritchie's upcoming flick, VARIETY says this:

Downey next will be seen in "Tropic Thunder," and then stars with Jamie Foxx in the Joe Wright-directed "The Soloist" for DreamWorks. He'll reprise his Tony Stark role in Iron Man 2 for Marvel Studios and Paramount, with Jon Favreau directing.

Did I miss an announcement somewhere? Or did VARIETY bury the hell out of their lead?
