Jon Favreau Says His Most Fun MCU Role Was ‘Spider-Man: Far From Home’

Jon Favreau revealed that his most fun role to date was as Happy Hogan in Tom Holland’s Spider-Man: Far From Home.

In addition to directing the first two installments of the Iron Man film series, Jon Favreau has portrayed Happy Hogan in six Marvel Cinematic Universe films. In Spider-Man: Far From Home, Jon Favreau’s Happy Hogan was tasked with helping Tom Holland’s Peter Parker and offered sage advice regarding how to move forward without Tony Stark, who sacrificed himself in Avengers: Endgame.

During an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Jon Favreau was asked if he would be open to continue playing Happy Hogan and the actor seemed more than willing to reprise his role. In fact, Jon Favreau revealed that his time on Tom Holland’s Spider-Man: Far From Home was the most fun he’s had with a role to date:

“Oh sure, I love doing that. And I learn because I get to be on other peoples’ sets. When I get to see the Russo brothers direct, it’s great. When I get to be on Jon Watts’ set for Spider-Man, I had more fun in his last Spider-Man than in any movie role I can remember.”

Are you hoping to see Jon Favreau’s Happy Hogan continue making appearances in the MCU? Let us know below!
