FIRST ON 3: Jon Favreau coming to Wilmington for ‘Iron Man 3’
WILMINGTON, NC (SCREENRANT.COM) — Former franchise helmer Jon Favreau confirmed on Twitter that – while he won’t be directing the threequel – he will be returning to the franchise as Tony Stark’s bodyguard, Happy Hogan.
Also, with big names like Ben Kingsley, Guy Pearce, James Badge Dale and Rebecca Hall joining returning series veterans Robert Downey, Jr., Gwyneth Paltrow, and Don Cheadle, Iron Man 3 is shaping up to be a promising new entry in the popular film series.
By comparison, it seems almost trivial that obscure actor Ashley Hamilton is apparently in talks to play equally obscure Iron Man villain, Firepower.
Then again, it’s unclear how, exactly, this character fits into the larger story line based on the Iron Man “Extremis” storyline, leaving open the possibility that Firepower will, in fact, play a pivotal role.
