The first piece of production concept art (above) from Marvel's Iron Man 3 has hit the web and superhero threads are being lit up with major speculation about the sequel's secret plot!
To us, it looks like Robert Downey Jr. is getting ambushed by some well-armed thugs while he's only wearing a few pieces of his metal suit. To others, however, it looks like the suit could be emerging from his body, as if he's literally morphing into Iron Man.
This interpretation is leading fans to believe that the plot of the film has been adapted from the 2005 comic book story arc called Extremis — widely regarded as one of the best Iron Man stories ever told.

We know he'd rather be behind the camera, but this is still good news!

Though, if you have to have a reason to drop out of Iron Man 3, it's nice that the reason is that you're just too busy with work because you're so in demand!
Jessica Chastain has had to drop from Iron Man 3 for that very reason.
Here's what the Oscar-nominted actress said of the unfortunate — but understandable — decision:

A supremely talented actress like her will fit RIGHT in among the rest of this cast!
Jessica Chastain is reportedly in negotiations to appear in the Shane Black-directed third installment of the Iron Man franchise. Jessica will play a "sexy scientist," who is apparently just as smart as the superhero Tony Stark, played by Robert Downey Jr.!
Apparently, the Academy Award nominee was initially the top choice for the part, but she unfortunately couldn't commit due to scheduling conflicts with other projects, including the Kathryn Bigelow-directed Osama Bin Laden movie!
However, she must have

They've got a writer!
Now that Jon Favreau has opted out taking the reigns for Iron Man 3, Shane Black was hired to direct the flick, and now, it's been revealed that Drew Pearce has been brought on to pen the screenplay!
Nice! Apparently, he has worked on the script for a now-defunct adaptation of the comic series Runaways, so at least he's familiar with the Marvel comic world!
Here's hoping that this one will correct the missteps that were taken with Iron Man 2!

Looks like the Iron Man 3 news keeps on coming!
Last month, we learned that Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang director Shane Black would be reuniting with Robert Downey Jr. to direct the next installment in the super hero franchise.
Now, we've got some new Iron Man 3 script details for ya:
- Marvel wants Tony Stark to fight against "real-world villains"
- Takes place AFTER The Avengers
- Won't feature any crossover characters from the Marvel Universe
Real-world villains? How much more REAL do you get than Mickey Rourke As Whiplash??? LOLz!
What do U think about the first script deets from Iron Man 3?

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??
