Jon Favreau, director of the first two Iron Man films and not-director of the third one for quite a while, will reprise his onscreen role as Tony Stark's bodyguard fellow in Iron Man 3. "It is unclear how big the role is in the third movie but having Favreau return as Hogan seems like a sign of solidarity on Favreau and Marvel’s part and an endorsement of [new director Shane] Black," THR writes. Endorsed!
