Iron Man 3 to be Self-Contained and Play Like a Tom Clancy Thriller; Shane Black to Serve as Writer and Director
According to Black, who announced there that he would be writing as well as directing, he'll be meeting with Robert Downey, Jr. this week, and that Downey will be contributing to the story.
Aint It Cool News features a report on the Omaha Film Festival, where writer/director Shane Black was featured and during which he spoke about his career, including his newest gig as the writer/director of Iron Man 3.
Black pointed out that the studio was not pleased with the direction of Iron Man 2 and that the third film will not be "two men in iron suits fighting each other," but, instead, would play more like a Tom Clancy thriller, with Iron Man's opponents being more real-world than comic book.
Reportedly the film will not feature other Marvel heroes, because the plan is that post-Avengers the various films will focus on individual heroes, and that the crossovers were designed primarily as a lead in to that Joss Whedon-directed film.
