Jon Favreau Happy About Doing Spider-Man: Homecoming

Spider-Man: Homecoming will certainly be a homecoming for Jon Favreau, the man behind Iron Man as he returns to Marvel. The actor/director will be reprising his role as Tony’s former bodyguard Happy Hogan in Spider-Man’s first solo adventure.

The actor gave an interview with Yahoo News about stepping back from the MCU after starting the franchise and his return to his Marvel role. “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.”

Favreau also described his return to Marvel 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.”
