Robert Downey Jr and Jon Favreau are finally working together again in Spider-Man: Homecoming, with Favreau then set to produce Avengers: Infinity War and its sequel. But according to a photo Downey posted of him, Favreau and other guests at Marvel's Pinewood Studios in Atlanta, Favreau may reunite with another old collaborator soon.
This photo shows Downey and Favreau with Tom Holland, the Russo brothers and Kevin Feige, along with the inspiration for Favreau's recent movie Chef, Ray Choi, whose Twitter handle is @RidingShotgunLA.

Choi also posted the picture on Instagram, with the hashtag #staytuned included on it. Between that teaser and Downey's, it may be easy to guess Choi filmed some kind of cameo alongside Favreau in Homecoming, where Favreau is returning on camera to the MCU for the first time since Iron Man 3.
It could also mean there's another new project Favreau and Choi are working on and plan to announce soon. However, Favreau is not only producing Infinity War after Homecoming wraps, he has a sequel to The Jungle Book to prepare filming as well. With all those duties for upcoming blockbusters, it doesn't seem to leave Favreau with much free time.
Taking a step back from blockbusters gave Favreau time to make Chef in 2014, which was loosely based on Choi's experiences cooking in food trucks after years of working in four and five-star restaurants. It also happened to include MCU veterans Downey and Scarlett Johansson as well in supporting roles.
Whether Choi is stopping by the MCU now, or whether he and Favreau are working on something else in or outside any blockbuster universe, it seems there will be some clarity soon. In any case, Favreau, Downey, Holland and Feige are now in the last weeks of filming Spider-Man: Homecoming and getting it ready for its July 7, 2017 release date, before the Russos step in to start filming Downey in Infinity War under Favreau and Feige's watchful eyes.
