 A month after rumors appeared online suggesting that Shane Black was coming on board to write and direct Iron Man 3, the Kiss Kiss Bang Bang  director has confirmed to fans he intends to reunite with lead star Robert Downey Jr. in the effort. Despite no official announcements of his involvement out of Marvel Studios nor Paramount Pictures, AICN reports that Black appeared at the Omaha Film Festival and answered the question as to his participation.

His answer to the fan was that he was meeting with Downey Jr. later this week and that the actor would be contributing to the story that Black has been set to write. The writer-director also confirmed that unlike last year's sequel, this third installment will have less of the superhero element and even less of two iron-clad players battling each other.

"Iron Man 3 will not be another 'two men in iron suits fighting each other' film. Instead, it will be more like a Tom Clancy-thriller, with Iron Man fighting real world villians."

There you have it, Maniacs. Black seems to be sure he has the job for writing and directing this third "Iron" adventure and already has a story in mind for the Marvel hero.

With Iron Man 3 set aside for a May 3, 2013 release, there's still some time for Marvel, Paramount and Black to develop the production.

Thanks to Calibur454 for the submission.
