Shane Black is directing Iron Man 3!


Last week we let you know about the possibility of Shane Black taking over Iron Man 3 for Disney. Thanks to the geek power behind that mere possibility, Deadline is now reporting that Disney is in final negotiations with Black to direct the movie, which is due out May 3rd 2013. They don’t mention whether or not Shane Black will actually write it, but if the deal is finalized it’s likely he’ll at least do a draft of the script. Either way this is good news. With as awesome as Thor and Captain America are looking and with Matthew Vaughn behind X-Men, the only big question mark in Marvel’s upcoming movies is Whedon’s Avengers.
