We know he'd rather be behind the camera, but this is still good news!
Jon Favreau closed a deal with Marvel Studios to return as Happy Hogan, Iron Man's endearingly loyal driver!
Favreau directed the first two films but abandoned ship to direct Disney's Magic Kingdom which is still only in development.
Lethal Weapon architect Shane Black is the writer/director for Iron Man 3 and, as we previously reported, RDJ thinks Black's script is one of the best he ever read!!
We are pumped for IM3, which began shooting on Wednesday, and we think it's a positive omen that Favreau and Shane are willing to work together.
After the incomprehensibly awesome success of The Avengers, EVERYONE is intrigued to watch Marvel's next move.
Do U think their superhero momentum will hold steady!!
