If you’re in Vegas today, bet on Black! Shane Black. While at the annual theater-owners convention in Vegas, CinemaCon, the Disney presentation kicked off with the Marvel Studios portion, and a few quick words about the upcoming Iron Man 3 with producer Kevin Feige and director Shane Black. Here’s a few key words that Comic Book Movie picked-up via Coming Soon:
Declaring the movie a “technological thriller” and “crisis movie,” Black says it’s set in the world of “international war, arms and terror.” And he adds that they’ll “put Tony Stark through the wringer” as they explore the trials of being Tony Stark. Regarding the villain, Black said he’ll be one that will “frighten in today’s world.”
That fits with previous comments made by Feige that the third installment of Iron Man will see Tony Stark “stripped of everything, back against a wall, & has nothing but his intelligence to get him out.” In other news, The Hollywood Reporter is suggesting that actress Jessica Chastain, who was previously announced to be in negotiations for a role in the film as a “sexy scientist,” would not be snaking the lead female slot out from Gwyneth Paltrow, and indeed Pepper Potts’ role will be “beefed-up” for Iron Man 3.
Iron Man 3 is apparently supposed to start shooting next month in North Carolina with series stars Robert Downey Jr, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Don Cheadle, along with new cast members Guy Pearce and Ben Kingsley.
