Spider-Man: Far From Home Set Video Confirms Happy Hogan's Return

It looks like Happy Hogan is the latest member of the Marvel Cinematic Universe confirmed to be part of Spider-Man: Far From Home.

Jon Favreau is not only remembered for directing 2008's Iron Man and its sequel, but for playing Hogan in all three Iron Man movies. As a surprise addition to Jon Watts' Spider-Man: Homecoming, the surly bodyguard/chauffeur might be back to provide more comic relief in Far From Home.

Hot off the heels of Samuel L. Jackson and Cobie Smulders being spotted on the set of the superhero sequel, Favreau appears to feature in a video shared by Reddit user R1zzles. The build and outfit seems to match Hogan, and although the video is taken from a distance, R1zzles clarifies, "Definitely looked a lot like him."

Favreau was ultimately cut from the theatrical release of Avengers: Infinity War and his fate has been left up in the air after Thanos' finger snap moment. Whether Hogan survived being eradicated from existence or not, it seems like he will be back in action alongside fallen heroes Fury and Hill.

Notably missing is Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark after the billionaire genius took on the role of Peter Parker's mentor in Spider-Man: Homecoming. With both Hogan and Hill having worked for Stark Industries, the two could bring Tom Holland's wall-crawling hero to the attention of Nick Fury.

Either way, the cast of Spider-Man: Far From Home continues to grow as it goes on a tour of Europe and there could be another promotion on the cards for Stark's loyal aide if he's working alongside S.H.I.E.L.D.'s eye-patched boss.

Helmed by returning director Jon Watts, Spider-Man: Far From Home stars Tom Holland, Zendaya, Jacob Batalon, Jake Gyllenhaal, Samuel L. Jackson, Cobie Smulders, Remy Hii and Tony Revolori. It is scheduled to be released on July 5, 2019.
