Iron Man 3 Director is Lethal.

Since the news that Jon Favreau confirmed that he was not directing Iron Man 3 the search was on for a new director. Well the wait is over and the rumours were true. Shane Black is now officially on board to direct the next installment in the series. Shane has worked with Robert Downey Jr before and he also wrote Lethal Weapon 1 and 2. After the disappointment that was Iron Man 2 (and I am a huge fan) I think this is exactly what the series needs to get back to it’s full magic.

The ever secretive Marvel Studios is in final negotiations with Shane Black to direct Iron Man 3 set to be released on May 3, 2013. As you know, IM1 and IM2 director Jon Favreau begged off to helm Magic Kingdom at Disney so his relationship with the franchise ran its course. Shane is first and foremost a writer but it’s not clear whether he’ll be penning the IM3 script as well. “That’s not figured out,” our source says. Of course, everyone in and around Marvel is keeping mum.
