Jessica Chastain Could Join 'IRON MAN 3'

The cast of Iron Man 3 just keeps growing and the actors involved are beyond impressive. Deadline reports that newcomer Jessica Chastain could land a role as a a sexy scientist every bit as smart as Tony Stark. Apparently the studio had also met with actresses that included Diane Kruger, Gemma Arterton and Isla Fisher for the part. However, when the original scheduling conflict with another film wasn't an issue anymore, Jessica could be a shoe-in for the role. Chastain has blown up in the last year with a rather large amount of films being released last year. Those included The Help, The Debt, The Tree of Life, Take Shelter, Texas Killing Fields and Coriolanus. The former earned her an Oscar nomination for best supporting actress. She also has prohibition thriller Lawless (Wettest County) coming out later this year along with a role in Kathryn Bigelow's (Hurt Locker) Zero Dark Thirty (Kill Bin Laden).

They aren't naming the part like they did with Ben Kingsley's possible role. It 'could' be big enough to keep it quiet, as Kevin Feige loved how secretive the casting for Star Trek 2 has been. My impression is that it could be Whitney Frost (Madame Masque) who has been rumored for months now. I also wouldn't rule out Scarlet Witch who had been wanted for the last Iron Man film. Considering this from the Extremis storyline Maya Henson is a large possibility. Anyways, it will be interesting to see the true intentions of this new character be her friend or foe.
