Cinematographer Matthew Libatique Choosing Noah Over Iron Man 3?

Matthew Libatique (Iron Man 1-2) is considered one of the best cinematographers currently working in Hollywood. His films are some the most beautiful looking pieces of cinema. Credits include Requiem For A Dream, Black Swan, Cowboys And Aliens, Tigerland and The Fountain. Libatique is also known as a longtime collaborator of director Darren Aronofksy and says he's about to work on Noah. The news was dug up by ThePlaylist and production on Noah starts this summer. Noah is a blockbuster bible epic featuring a new take the mythical character and could be seeing a release date in the fall of 2013

This news might be impactful to Iron Man fans as Matthew has worked on the first two films. Leading me to believe he won't be working on Shane Black's Iron Man 3. Production on Iron Man 3 is rumored to start in late April or early May in North Carolina. Which seems to conflict with Noah's summer production in New York and Iceland. I wouldn't say it's the end of the world but Libatique like Jon Favreau helped create the world of Iron Man. It wouldn't be the first comic book project Matthew has walked from. He was previously set to work on The Wolverine when Aronofsky was still the director.
