Iron Man 3 was a controversial movie among fans, but most agree it's a pretty original story.

Shane Black and his cowriter Drew Pearce wanted it to be even MORE original — by making the villain a woman!

In a frank interview with Uproxx, the director explained that Marvel Entertainment put the sexist kibosh on the forward-thinking idea of a female mastermind:

We cannot stress how much this is exactly what we want from a movie.

Michael B. Jordan Reportedly Going Bad For Black Panther Movie! But He's Not The First Actor To Play More Than One Comic Book Character…

This cast just keeps getting better!

Just one day after Lupita Nyong'o was reported to be in talks for the solo Black Panther film, it appears Michael B. Jordan will be joining as well — as the bad guy??

Jordan's involvement makes perfect sense as he has worked with director Ryan Coogler to great success twice on Fruitvale Station and then Creed.

As for him playing the villain, Marvel Studios isn't commenting — but it would be a good opportunity for him to step into another big superhero movie without risking a longterm commitment to another franchise. *cough*FantasticFour*cough*

Of course, Michael, wouldn't be the first to take on multiple comic book roles…

Supergirl Officially Makes The Rare Network Switch To The CW — But Which Cast Member Might Not Make The Trip??

Up, up, and away… from CBS!

The CW can finally say they're the home of FOUR superhero shows now that Supergirl has officially switched channels for Season Two!

We'd heard rumors that America's most watched network was thinking about throwing away their only drama that actually attracted a younger demographic… but we didn't think they were ever going to go through with it.

Well, we were proven wrong on Thursday when it was announced that Melissa Benoist will be joining the rest of Greg Berlanti's super lineup this Fall!

While this may seem like a shock to some fans, it's actually great news because not only does this ensures more crossovers with The Flash, Arrow, and Legends of Tomorrow, but it will also give the cast and crew more creative leeway!

However, we're also hearing Calista Flockhart is hesitant about staying on, seeing as production will be moving from El Lay to Vancouver… but we guess we'll just have to wait and see what happens.

Are U super stoked about Supergirl's new home??

Lupita Nyong'o In Talks To Join Black Panther Movie! And Who She Plays Could Change EVERYTHING…

Yasss!

We've LOVED the casting Marvel Studios has been doing ever since bailing Robert Downey Jr. out of movie jail to become the biggest movie star on the planet.

And it's about time they backed up a truckload of money to Lupita Nyong'o's door!

After smaller roles in Disney's other megahits Star Wars: The Force Awakens and The Jungle Book, the 12 Years A Slave Oscars winner is reportedly in talks to take the female lead in the Black Panther movie!

African superhero king T'Challa's introduction was one of the most lauded features of last week's Captain America: Civil War, and his solo film — out February 2, 2018 — should be a huge hit!

Who will Lupita play? That's where it gets interesting…

Her possible role is being kept under wraps for now, but she IS reportedly star Chadwick Boseman's love interest.

In the comics, Black Panther marries none other than…
