Marvel Meets Shane Black About "Iron Man 3"

As you may already know, Jon Favreau will not return to direct the third installment Marvel Studio's Iron Man film franchise, after directing the first two movies, which were big hits.  As Marvel interviews prospective directors, a surprising name has come up according to Collider, legendary action movie screenwriter, Shane Black, the man who created Lethal Weapon and The Last Boy Scout.  Black also wrote and directed the excellent Kiss Kiss Bang Bang (I just posted my review of it from a few years back.), which featured the star of the Iron Man movies, Robert Downey, Jr.

According to Collider, Marvel is meeting with a number of directors and the name of one of them is now known: Shane Black.  "Iron Man 3" is set to be released on May 3, 2013.
