Though he's not set to direct the film as he has the previous two, Vulture is reporting that Jon Favreau will reprise his role as Tony Stark's bodyguard, Hogan, in the upcoming Iron Man 3.

It's not too clear how big the role will be, but, as The Hollywood Reporter puts it, Favreau's participation is a good sign: "...having Favreau return as Hogan seems like a sign of solidarity on Favreau and Marvel’s part and an endorsement of [new director Shane] Black."
