Shane Black to direct Iron Man 3?


With Disney having set Iron Man 3 for a May 3rd 2013 release and with Jon Favreau jumping ship to direct The Magic Kingdom for the Mouse, they need a new director pretty quick. Well thankfully the Hollywood Reporter has found out that Shane Black is in contention to not just direct the movie but also possibly write a draft as well.

This is awesome news as Shane Black was the mind behind Lethal Weapon and most recently directed Robert Downy Jr. in the awesome Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang. This is just the sort of fresh air the Iron Man trilogy needs to finish on a bang, unlike just about every other superhero trilogy that ends with a lot of stupid.
