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??
