Charles, who was a teacher at a school for children with developmental disabilities, often took his son to theaters and film representations.
When Jon turned thirteen, his mother died of leukemia. This tragedy was a deep shock for the teenager. However, his father did everything to help his son recover after the family tragedy and wouldn't feel himself an orphan.
After the wave of success, there was another sequel Iron Man II (2010) accepted by the audience with equal interest. But the third part of the much-talked-of fantasy was directed by Shane Black. Over four years, Favreau got tired of comics production and agreed to join the project only as one of the characters, Happy Hogan.
I still feel myself a part of this family. Even though I don't sit in a director's seat on the set, for I work on another film, portraying Tony Stark's driver, or attend a premiere screening, or talk on the phone with another film director, it's still nice to see where the Marvel films are going to. I'm so glad that this franchise is still topical. I feel like a proud grandpa!
