Jon Favreau is making his on-screen return to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The original Iron Man director will reprise his role as Tony Stark’s chauffeur and right-hand man, Happy Hogan, in Spider-Man: Homecoming, EW has confirmed.

Favreau helmed the first two Iron Man movies and last portrayed Happy in 2013’s Iron Man 3. Though he hasn’t appeared in a Marvel movie in a few years, he served as an executive producer on Avengers: Age of Ultron and will do so again on Avengers: Infinity War.

Favreau joins a Homecoming cast that includes his old pal Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark/Iron Man, Tom Holland as Peter Parker/Spider-Man, Marisa Tomei as Aunt May, and Michael Keaton as a villain widely suspected to be the Vulture.

Jon Watts (Cop Car) is directing Homecoming, a co-production between Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures that promises to take the web-slinger back to his high school roots. Currently shooting in Atlanta, the film is scheduled to open July 7.

Favreau’s most recent film as a director was The Jungle Book, which grossed $961 million worldwide for Disney (Marvel’s corporate parent) and is getting a sequel. On the other side of the camera, he costarred with Vince Vaughn and Hailee Steinfeld in the comedic thriller Term Life earlier this year.

Variety first reported the news.
