It seems like Atlanta might be the world’s safest city at the moment. After all, the locale is housing a whole host of heroes right now as Spider-Man: Homecoming and Avengers: Infinity War are in production there. And, what's more, it looks like Iron Man has taken a trip down south to join the powerful posse. Robert Downey Jr. recently shared a photo of him amongst a new sort of superhero squad.
Taking to Twitter, the actor uploaded a picture of him preparing to eat with some close friends. The photo (from left to right) features Anthony Russo, Joe Russo, Tom Holland, Jon Favreau, Robert Downey Jr., Roy Choi, and Kevin Feige. A short message was posted with the photo as Robert teased that Favreau and Choi were working on a new project.
For those of you who aren’t familiar with Choi, there’s no need to be alarmed. He’s a celebrity chef, so fans shouldn’t expect to see him suit up in either Homecoming or Infinity War. Author of L.A. Son, Choi and Favreau have collaborated in the past to create a comedy titled Chef (2014). Choi shared Robert’s photo on his Instagram with the teaser “#staytuned,” signaling that Favreau and Choi are likely working on a new project.
As for why Robert is in Atlanta in the first place, it seems that the actor is prepping to shoot for Homecoming. The star signed on to the film to reprise his role of Tony Stark/Iron Man who’ll reportedly mentor Tom Holland’s Peter Parker/Spider-Man. Jon Favreau will also appear in the film as Happy Hogan, marking the character’s first reunion with Tony Stark since Iron Man 3.
Of course, it isn’t totally out of the question for Robert to drop by the set of Infinity War. Both Marvel films are shooting at Pinewood Studios in Atlanta, and the Russo Brothers recently shared a photo of Josh Brolin rehearsing for his role as Thanos on one of the studio’s sound stages. With Homecoming wrapping up production, Infinity War is set to take over Pinewood Studios for the foreseeable future. Fans can expect to get more updates on the blockbuster once shooting heads underway.
