Default So, what about Happy Hogan?

If Favreau is out as director, I imagine he'll be out as Happy too.

Any thoughts on the role? Re-cast? Maybe he won't even be included?

Simple. Write him out.

Set the story and set of circumstances in a way that makes him being around impossible. It's not like Happy and Pepper are in every issue of the comic.

The only things that are required are:
Tony
The Suit
Jarvis
Great Story
&
Flawless execution

I'd add Pepper to that list and a great villain (Mandarin) and not waste him like they did Whiplash.

Things they could and probably should do without

Happy
War Machine
Too many damn jokes

Why can't he be in the film as an actor just because he stepped down as director?
Was he fired?

No, he quit, but it would still probably be inappropriate all the same.

Happy didn't appear in the comic for dozens of issues. For the whole Michellinie/ Layton run I don't think he appeared.

No real reason he can't do a couple days unless the shooting schedules for IM3 and Magic Kingdom are directly synced up or something.

Since they are both Disney projects I am sure something can be worked out - there's no reason he would not be there as an actor

I think it'll be a good gauge for whether the split was amicable between him & Marvel, or whether the IM2 shoot really was as bad as people have speculated.

Well, it's not as simple as having just a couple of days available. In both films, Favs had to really slim down to play the role. He tends to let himself go more when he's not working as an actor, I guess. So He'd need preperation to do it and I don't know if it would be worth it for a small cameo role(which is what Happy has been and should remain). So unless Favs has changed his eating habits and now keeps up the slimmer look already, I doubt we'll see him as Happy.

I dont think Happy is needed in the stories that they've been telling so far so they should leave this character out.

He is fairly superfluous as a character so far. This doesn't mean he can't get a bigger part in future iterations.

Why can't he be in the movie? Favreau is still acting in supporting roles all the time. This is right up his alley. It'd be an easy payday for him without having the stress of the entire movie and experience being on his shoulders.

A funny cameo will be good. If Favs - like he said - he's still collaborating and friends of Marvel, isn't difficult.

I felt anytime the character was on screen in IM2 it was really cheesy and corny, hoping they just write him out for this one. or RE cast but make reduce his role greatly. Keep it to how it was in IM 1
