There’s a new article about Iron Man 3‘s new director, Shane Black and where the third part of the franchise might be headed:
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.”
Take this with a grain of salt since it’s not a direct quote from Black, but it seems legit. Personally, I think it’s pretty awesome that they’re going back to the formula that made the first film so special.
Thanks to tonypepper @ LJ for the heads up.
