Jon Favreau Discusses His Return To The MCU As Happy Hogan In SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING

Fans were overjoyed to learn that director/actor Jon Favreau would be returning as Happy Hogan in Spider-Man: Homecoming. Now, Favreau has expressed his own happiness in reprising the role.

While the inclusion of Robert Downey Jr.'s Tony Stark in Spider-Man: Homecoming was massive news, fans were even more surprised to learn that Jon Favreau would be returning as Stark's bodyguard and friend, Happy Hogan, who we last saw in 2013's Iron Man 3.

In an interview with Yahoo, Favreau described his acting return to the Marvel Cinematic Universe as  “a lot of fun. It allows me to maintain the relationship with the MCU, but also to do other things that are interesting that are outside of that genre and that set of characters...Especially when the filmmakers are taking care of you, and taking care of the characters and the story. If you’re in good hands, it’s great to come in and play in somebody else’s world. That’s how I started, as an actor. I really enjoy being on other people’s sets, especially if I have cool things to do. It’s all the fun and much less of the responsibility.”

As far as remaining a part of the MCU as a whole, Favreau says he hasn't lost touch with his connections to the creative team, opting to remain behind-the-scenes for the time being, after directing Iron Man and Iron Man 2“Well, as far as directing goes, I had done two back-to-back, and that required a tremendous amount of concentration on one subject,” Favreau said. “Fortunately, I didn’t lose connection with it; I just wasn’t directing there. I still was executive-producing Avengers and Avengers: Age of Ultron and Iron Man 3, and I appeared in Iron Man 3. So I maintained the relationship as part of the family.”

Many have expressed their wishes for Favreau to return to directorial duties for a fourth Iron Man film, and by keeping such a good bond with the Marvel family, the possibilty is never truly off the table! Are you excited for Favreau's reappearance in the MCU? Sound off below!
