Last month we found out that Shane Black was the new director for Iron Man 3. Now we also have conformation that he will also be writing the script.
While at the Omaha Film Festival, Black talked a little bit about the upcoming film.
Regarding what direction IR3 will take, this is what he had to say:
The studio was not happy with the direction Iron Man 2 took. Iron Man 3 will not be another “two men in iron suits fighting each other” film. Instead, it will be more like a Tom Clancy-thriller, with Iron Man fighting real world villians [sic].
Tom Clancy thriller? Real world villains? I ain’t feeling this!
