Oscars 2011: Gwyneth Paltrow Hasn't Met 'Iron Man 3' Director Yet, Isn't Sure If She'll Return

Posted 11 hrs ago by Rick Marshall in Marvel, News

At this point, we know very little about "Iron Man 3" except that "Kiss Kiss Bang Bang" director Shane Black will direct the film. Will we finally see Tony Stark go up against Mandarin? Have we seen the last of War Machine? These are the questions that bother us so around Splash Page HQ.

When MTV News managed to catch up with Pepper Potts herself, actress Gwyneth Paltrow, we made sure to ask her what she knows about the next chapter of the armored Avenger's big-screen adventures. Apparently, she knows about as much we do...

"I haven't met [Shane Black] yet, no," Paltrow told MTV News.

"[Black is a] great writer," she continued. "I'll really miss Jon Favreau, but I'm sure Shane will be great."

And while it's no surprise that Paltrow hasn't had a chance to meet with the recently announced "Iron Man 3" director, the actress said she's not even sure if she'll be in the third film at this point.

"I don't even know if I'm in it, so we'll see," she said.

Of course, before the rumors start flying, it's worth noting that it's very, very early in the "Iron Man 3" development cycle at this point. With "Thor" and "Captain America: The First Avenger" arriving in theaters this year and "The Avengers" bringing the whole Marvel movie universe together in 2012, there's still a lot of time — and plot points — between now and the next time Tony Stark goes solo on the big screen.

Yup, I agree!  It's too early to know a lot of details for Iron Man 3 at this point. So, let's just wait a little longer.  Small details may come around soon...

Shane Black on Directing Iron Man 3

This is from reelzchannel

Posted 02.11.11 by BrentJS

It was recently reported writer-director Shane Black, best known for writing the screenplay for Lethal Weapon and for directing Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang, could be taking over directing duties on Marvel Studios' Iron Man 3 from Jon Favreau, who bowed out to direct Disney's Magic Kingdom instead. Now, Black himself has confirmed to TheWrap that he has been meeting with Marvel, but he said that it is premature to start listing him in connection with the movie just yet.

"Nothing has been decided yet. I've taken a few meetings and I'll probably take a few more before Marvel decides."

Black has shown interest in comic-based movies of late, signing with Columbia to direct a live-action adaptation of the pulp action hero Doc Savage last year and signing with Warner Bros. to direct an adaptation of the Japanese manga (comic) Death Note last month. Black seems like a good choice to take over the reins of the Iron Man franchise because of his prior experience with working with title star Robert Downey Jr. and producer Susan Downey on Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang and because he is also a writer, a skill that would come in very handy on a movie franchise that is known for its improvised dialogue and last-minute script changes.

Next Showing: Iron Man 3 is slated to open May 3, 2013
