Shane Black and producers of Ironman III wasted little time when first choice Jessica Chastain couldn’t resolve scheduling conflicts to accept the role of Maya Hansen, creator of the Extremis Enhancile.
Extremis Enhancile is, in short, a super-soldier solution, a bio-electronics package fitted into a few billion graphic nanotubes and suspended in a carrier fluid.
Variety is reporting that Rebecca Hall is now the front runner to replace Chastain in the female lead in the first post-Avengers movie, Iron Man III. Hall is best known for her leading role in Ben Affleck’s The Town. After the huge success of The Avengers, theater goers are certain to turn out in droves for this next chapter in the Marvel saga, and although she’s a known commodity in Hollywood, this could certainly be Hall’s break out role.
Starring Robert Downey Jr., Don Cheadle, Gwyneth Paltrow, Guy Pearce and Ben Kingsley, Iron Man 3 will begin production in North Carolina this month leading toward a May 3, 2013 release date.
