Iron Man 3 has itself a star, a director, and now, a screenwriter. Comic book movies don’t write themselves. Well, maybe Daredevil and Ghost Rider did, but not the good ones. Drew Pearce has got the gig after he turned in a script for Runaways to Marvel. Not the Kristen Stewart/Joan Jett film, but rather an adaptation of the comic Lost in which children of supervillains try to do good.
The movie has a release date of May 3, 2013, so the clock is running on Pearce, who Deadline reports will be working from scratch with director Shane Black. Other than that, not much else is known about the project. No villains or exotic locales have been named yet, but I’m sure the fanboys on the Internet will make their opinion known. There’s still still time, guys. COMMENT!
