Jon Favreau returns to the big screen in the role of Happy Hogan, when Iron Man 3 is released later this year. Now, Marvel's Kevin Feige has revealed how Happy Hogan has a key role in the Iron Man 3 movie.
Feige told MTV News, “When you put Jon in front of the camera, he tends to steal every scene he's in, just by reading the scripted lines, but also by going off-book and ad-libbing with the best of them. He's got some amazing scenes that he steals. But there's a deeper storyline for Happy in this one, and more of a connection with Tony. The movie goes into why they've been friends for all these years.”
He added, “It was wonderful for Shane, because he had Favreau right there, sitting next to him. Shane was not shy about going over and asking Jon questions, whether it was as simple as, 'How do I navigate this giant green screen?' Or if it was a question about the character and the franchise. Jon is incredibly gracious and incredibly conscious with other filmmakers to not step on their toes. At the same time, he gives advice and input when he's asked.”
Iron Man 3 sees the return of Robert Downey Jr. in the role of Tony Stark aka Iron Man, when the movie is released on April 26 in the UK and then on May 3 in the US.
