Jon Favreau to join Robert Downey Jr. in Spider-Man: Homecoming

09.01.2016

In addition to directing both IRON MAN and IRON MAN 2, Jon Favreau also made an appearance as Happy Hogan in each of the IRON MAN flicks, so I guess you could say that where wherever Tony Stark goes, Happy Hogan follows...unless it's an AVENGERS or CAPTAIN AMERICA film, so I suppose it would be more accurate to say that wherever Tony Stark Goes, Happy Hogan occasionally follows.

Variety reports that Jon Favreau will be following Robert Downey Jr. over to the set of SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING where he'll be reprising his role as the head of security for Stark Industries. The last time we saw Mr. Hogan was in IRON MAN 3 where he was enjoying a little Downton Abbey after waking up from a coma, so it will be nice to check in with him after his three year absence. Production on Jon Watts' SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING has been underway in Atlanta since June and will see Peter Parker (Tom Holland) attempting to balance his high-school life with his life as Spider-Man.

SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING will hit theaters on July 7, 2017 and Favreau's THE JUNGLE BOOK was released on Blu-ray/DVD earlier this week.

Great news. Hopefully it's more than just a glorified cameo.

I remember a time when some things were left unsaid and when we saw the movie at the theater it was an awesome surprise. I mean, come on, can't we keep some things secret so we don't know EVERY DAMN THING that is going happen in a movie? I mean, sure, this is a movie site, but shit man, Star Wars was almost ruined for me because some authors couldn't keep spoilers out of their headlines, and many other movies the same. Sure I'll get a reply saying "well don't come to the site then." Well,

I agree that they should keep the spoiler out of the headline and give the reader the option of clicking on the article.

But does it really count as a spoiler if it's an official casting announcement?

I mean look, you seem to nostalgic for a time that never existed. Do you think anyone had a say in spoilers for Terminator 2 when it's revealed in the *trailer* that Arnold was secretly playing a good guy? Something that the filmmakers explicitly intended to be a surprise? We've come a long way since then. At some point, you have to draw your own line regarding how much promotional and upcoming news you want

Something that the filmmakers explicitly intended to be a surprise? We've come a long way since then. At some point, you have to draw your own line regarding how much promotional and upcoming news you want to consume based on your tolerance for spoilers. And if that tolerance ends at casting announcements, my friend I'm sorry but there's very little movie news you'll be safe seeing. So that's a decision you have to make

when you really think about it, it would really be more fun if you just discovered things in the movie itself. you could just say it stars so and so directed by this guy and that's it. but then we really don't completely know what goes behind all those promotional things so yeah maybe you need to reveal everything except the kitchen sink (BvS) to ramp up maximum exposure.

Thanks for the replies. I agree with all three of you. I think the only thing I can add is that while an official announcement is accepted as news, sometimes even those go too far for the sake of gaining an audience. Sure, this announcement might be par for the course, but how cool would it be to watch this movie for the first time never knowing that RDJ or or Favreau are in it? Much like the Rogue One trailer...I didn't need to see Darth Vader immediately for the sake of getting asses in

I respect your opinions.

Hey man, I totally get it. It's all part of the paparazzi culture we live in that makes it impossible to hide information like this. There are very few movies that can get away with sneaking actors onto sets anymore, even minor actors. TMZ will track down and research stories on people you've never seen before, and it'll get read. I wish it wasn't that way either.

This is great news. It'll be cool to see Happy with Tony again. Their banter works really well (especially in the first Iron Man).
