Shane Black might write and direct "Iron Man 3"

The Hollywood Reporter reports that Shane Black is a contender to write and direct Iron Man 3. Jon Favreau, who directed the first two films, opted out of directing the third installment to helm The Magic Kingdom for Disney. Shane has an impressive repertoire- he wrote Lethal Weapon and Lethal Weapon 2 and directed Kiss, Kiss, Bang, Bang also starring Robert Downey, Jr.

I think this would be a fantastic decision. Shane Black is one of the best action writers around, and Kiss, Kiss, Bang, Bang was a terrific blend of humor and intrigue. He hasn't done anything on the scale of Iron Man before, but then again neither did Jon Favreau before directing the first film. At least this proves Marvel is thinking outside the box when it comes to choosing a new director for the flick.
