With The Avengers almost upon us, details are starting to trickle in for Shane Black’s Iron Man 3, and with filming due to start next month, you can be sure the news will soon start to come thick and fast.
The latest details to emerge include Guy Pearce (recently seen as Peter Weyland in the virus trailer for Prometheus) in talks to play geneticist Aldrich Killian. Previous casting details have included Ben Kingsley being talks to play the main villain, and of course the return of Scarlet Johansson, Gwyneth Paltrow and Don Cheadle.
The story will be loosely based on the Extremis storyline from the comic books, centering around nanotechnology.
At this stage we do have a loose release date of 3rd May 2013 for the US and the UK, but no word yet for Australia.
