Shane Black To Make DOC SAVAGE Movie Next
It looks like Iron Man 4 will have to take a backseat while writer/director Shane Back focuses on his next project. Deadline reports that Sony has finally greenlit Black's take on the pulp hero Doc Savage which he'll co-write and direct. Nothing seems set in stone concerning Iron Man 4 being apart of Phase Three so it's possible that Black will end up directing sequels. With the third installment being the biggest of the franchise it's expected Marvel might not be so quick to replace him.
