Shane Black set to direct Iron Man 3 with Robert Downey, Jr.

It would appear that Marvel has found their next director as Shane Black is officially in negotiations to helm the third film in the IRON MAN franchise. No word on whether or not he’ll tackle the script but we’ll probably find out soon enough. You may all remember that Black has a good relationship with Iron Man himself (as in Robert Downey, Jr.) since their work together on KISS KISS BANG BANG, and this could be one of the reasons he was able to land this gig. Still no word on when production will officially begin.
Yay- I’m glad IM3 now has a director. I like Jon Favreau’s take on the franchise but it’s always nice to have a fresh outlook. Maybe now Marvel will work harder on this upcoming film and forget about that spin-off for War Machine. That just seems like a bad idea to me.
