Marvel Studios has started the search to replace Jon Favreau as director of Iron Man 3 and Heat Vision | THR reports that the studio is looking at writer/director Shane Black as a possible contender.
The writer/director has powwowed with Marvel execs about his take on the third installment in the blockbuster franchise. As of now he is being considered for the directing job, but the assumption is that if he gets the gig, he would also write a draft.
Black’s involvement is not a sure thing, however, as Marvel continues to look at other filmmakers for the project.
Iron Man 3 is scheduled to hit theaters on May 3, 2013.
