Shane Black Considered to Write and Direct ‘Iron Man 3’

It’s been a sad news that Jon Favreau has dropped out of directing Iron Man 3 because he is meshing well with Marvel Studios anymore. Out with the old and in with the new I suppose. Lethal Weapon writer Shane Black is being considered to direct Iron Man 3. If he gets picked, he’ll also be able to write it too. Now that I think about it, it’s pretty weird. First you have Terrence Howard leaving, then Jon Favreau. What next?

The story is being kept secret of course but Robert Downey Jr. will be reprising his role as Tony Stark. Shane and Robert have worked together in the past with the movie Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, which he directed and co-wrote.

Disney is expecting to have Iron Man 3 scheduled for a May 3, 2013 release date.

Shane Black is also expected to helm the manga/anime series Death Note.
