We guess it's officially happening, then!

Although Jon Favreau announced that he would not direct the third film in the Iron Man franchise, it appears that Marvel Studios may have found his replacement in Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang director - and Robert Downey, Jr. collaborator - Shane Black!

Sources close to production have revealed Black is in final negotiations to helm the project, although it's unclear whether he, Favreau, or someone else will take on the role as the writer!

Inneresting! Black has a history of writing in the action genre, but we hope that he can bring the wit from the first two!

What do U think?? Are U excited for Iron Man 3??

    Directing a big action flick is far different from directing KISS KISS — if he's had little if any experience with CGI sequencing, this is not a good idea. I know Shane needs the work and that group (from Iron Man) is very kind to their own… so I can see this bone being tossed Shane's way but I am not sure it is the right move for them to make.

    I know that they like to make trilogies out of these things, but the first 2 iron man films were good, the first one seemed to shut the franchise down ok. I worry that the third will be shit. Too much wanting to make money going on.
