Robert Downey Jr. Teases a New Jon Favreau Project in the Works
Robert Downey Jr. and actor/director Jon Favreau have been buddies and occasional collaborators ever since Favreau directed and starred alongside Downey in 2008’s Iron Man (Favreau has played Tony Stark’s driver Happy Hogan in all of the Iron Man movies). Today Downey tweeted a photo of him and Favreau sitting down with a bunch of Marvel heavy hitters to tease a new project.
The photo shows Downey and Favreau with Tom Holland, otherwise known as Spider-Man, brothers Joe and Anthony Russo, who are currently working on Avengers: Infinity War, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige, and celebrity chef Roy Choi.
Wait, a chef? So, this isn’t a superhero movie?
Choi was the inspiration behind Favreau’s comedy-drama Chef, and also worked as a technical adviser on the film, and now it looks like Choi and Favreau might be teaming up for a new project. There’s no telling what it could possibly be at this point, but Choi also shared the same photo on his Instagram, telling his followers to “#staytuned.” Maybe this means that the next Marvel project is a movie about chefs with superpowers.
Spider-Man: Homecoming is almost finished filming, while Avengers: Infinity War is currently in pre-production. Favreau will be reprising his role as Happy Hogan in Homecoming for the first time since Iron Man 3.
