Re: Shane Black might write and direct "Iron Man 3"

Buuuuuump: Mr Black apparently discusses IM3; if true, the direction it seems likely to take is music to my ears:

I'm excited. However, I have a feeling we might not see The Mandarin, but I could be wrong.

I think if we do see The Mandarin that Black will focus on the more real world aspects of the character.

The studio wasn't happy with the direction THEY made Iron Man 2 go in?

Maybe he'll be Secretary for Defence, like in the comics.

Re: Shane Black might write and direct "Iron Man 3"

It seems like Black is writing a big, bold, action/adventure story which can only be a good thing. I like the idea of Tony taking on "real life" villains akin to the terrorists from the first movie, especially after "Avengers". If Mandarin does show up I have always suspected that they would have an "realistic" take on the character and his rings. I had an idea after seeing the first movie that the Mandarin was the leader of the Ten Rings and he gave out rings to the cell leaders of the organization as a sing of loyalty. I never worked it out more than that though.

Hmm - looks like if Black is writing it, it won't be alone. Shame.
