UPDATED: Shane Black in Final Talks to Direct Iron Man 3


UPDATE: Deadline.com have talked to their source at Marvel.com, and it appears that Black is now in Final negotiations.

The Hollywood Reporter has the story that Shane Black is in contention to direct Iron Man 3 for Marvel Studios.

They report that the writer/director has been in talks with Marvel execs about his ideas for the third installment in the series. He is currently being considered for the directing job, but the assumption is that if he gets the gig, he would also write a script draft.

The directing spot is currently up for grabs, after Jon Favreau, announced he was departing the franchise.

Black is primarily known as a screenwriter, with his credits including all four Lethal Weapon movies, The Long Kiss Goodnight, Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, and cult classic The Monster Squad. His only directing credit was for Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, in 2005.

Insiders have told THR said that Black’s involvement is far from a sure thing, and that other filmmakers were being looked at.

Disney/Marvel is scheduled to release the movie on May 3, 2021.
