Premiere Of Warner Bros. Pictures' "The Nice Guys" - ArrivalsTony Stark won't have to be parted from his driver, bodyguard, and close friend Happy Hogan when he appears in "Spider-Man: Homecoming."

Actor Jon Favreau is reportedly set to reprise his "Iron Man" role in the upcoming Sony and Marvel film, according to Variety. With Robert Downey, Jr. already lined up to bring Stark and his superhero alter ego, Iron Man, to the superhero flick, it makes sense for Favreau to come along for the ride. The two will join Tom Holland as the young actor headlines his first MCU movie.

Holland already had plenty of support as it was, given that the cast includes Donald Glover, Zendaya, Logan Marshall-Green, and Tony Revolori. Still, it's always fun to see another familiar face, especially a Marvel vet like Favreau. In addition to playing Hogan, he also helmed "Iron Man" and "Iron Man 2."

"Spider-Man: Homecoming" is currently shooting in Atlanta with Jon Watts directing. The film is due out in theaters on July 7, 2017.
