Shane Black In Talks To Write & Direct Iron Man 3

HeatVision is reporting that writer/director Shane Black is in talks to take on Iron Man 3. Black has some serious writing skills writing screenplays for Lethal Weapon, The Last Boy Scout, The Long Kiss Goodnight, The Last Action Hero and Monster Squad. He also did double duty of writing and directing Robert Downey Jr. in Kiss Kiss Bang Bang. Currently he's been writing an adaptation of Doc Savage with the possibility of directing it.

He's not a sure thing as other people are talking with Marvel Studios to work on the third installment. There had been talk that RDJ has final say on the director and is likely to pick someone he's worked with before.

I had Shane pegged as my favorite to direct the Deadpool film and I believe he's an excellent fit for the Marvel universe. Whoever gets the gig, I hope the third film ends up more Stark/Iron Man focused rather than a venue to introduce new Marvel characters.

Do You Think Shane Black Should Make Iron Man 3? Who Else Could Take On The Franchise? Leave Your Comments!
