Gushing over the sweet couple, a confidante revealed:
First, Sir Ben Kingsley and now this??
You're spoiling us!
Guy Pearce is in final talks to join the cast of the highly-anticipated Iron Man 3 as Aldrich Killian, a geneticist who helps create the Extremis virus, a serum used to boost human performance.
Naturally, we can only assume there will be some pretty nasty consequences!
And what we're really hoping is for some head-to-head on-screen action between his character and Robert Downey Jr.!
This third installment is really shaping up to be something exciting. We're going to have to wait a bit though. The movie doesn't come out until May 3, 2013.
