AceShowbiz - "Spider-Man: Homecoming" will add another "Iron Man" character to its storyline. Variety has reported that Jon Favreau will reunite with Robert Downey Jr. in the Jon-Watts-directed flick as Happy Hogan, the personal driver of Downey Jr.'s Tony Stark in the "Iron Man" movies. Marvel and Sony haven't given any comments regarding the report.
Favreau played a large part in the MCU. He was not only portraying the character in the first three "Iron Man" films, but also directing "Iron Man" and "Iron Man 2". It's unclear how large the role of the 49-year-old actor-filmmaker will play in the new "Spider-Man" movie. With Tony Stark playing a key role, Favreau's Happy will likely also be seen in the scenes where Tony Stark are featured.
As the filming is currently underway in Atlanta, a new on-set image featuring Tom Holland's Peter Parker has surfaced online. On Thursday, September 1, Holland took to Instagram to share the picture which showed him in the Spidey suit holding his mask in a dark alley. "Thank you to @georgejcottle and his amazing team for making me look like a badass," the 20-year-old actor captioned the image.
Directed by Jon Watts from a script written by John Francis Daley and Jonathan M. Goldstein, the new "Spider-Man" reboot also stars Marisa Tomei who will reprise her role as May Parker. The 51-year-old actress was spotted for the first time on the Atlanta set on Wednesday, August 31. She was seen hugging Holland and going for a stroll as they filmed a scene together.
