Personal Quote:

I missed the feeling of doing something small and personal, where I wouldn't have to explain my vision to anyone but the people I was collaborating with. See more »


Is the first person to appear in a Marvel Comic film adaptation, (Foggy Nelson in Daredevil (2003)) as well as direct one (Iron Man (2008) and Iron Man 2 (2010)). Is also the first person to play two unrelated Marvel characters with Favreau portraying the Iron Man character Harold "Happy" Hogan in Iron Man and Iron Man 2. See more »
