Guy Pearce Is Trying On Some New Genes With IRON MAN 3!

Ah yes, the overdue rising star named Guy Pearce! You have to love his short viral marketing piece he did as Peter Weyland for Ridley Scott's PROMETHEUS and if you haven't seen LOCKOUT yet, do it - I had fun.

Pearce is definitely making a solid move into A-list territory and to me he has always been one of my favorite actors since I saw him in THE COUNT OF MONTE CRISTO.

Now comes word that he is in final talks to star in IRON MAN 3 as the geneticist Aldrich Killian who will supposedly co-create "Extremis" nanotechnology. He may or may not then turn around and sell it to terrorists. Not good. A virus is supposed to be spread via this nanotech.

Ben Kingsley may be joining the cast too and there has been some conjecture about what role he might play. One of the terrorists perhaps? Or the other co-creator (if they decide to make this role a male instead the female Maya Hansen)?

Marvel again seems to be lining up a top flight sequel here. Shane Black is a great choice as director, the casting is bang-on thus far and the story seems quite interesting - apparently it will not only bring in the aforementioned nanotech but will also be very Tony Stark centric, highlighting his intellectual prowess. Love it.

Looks like production starts in May with a slated May 3, 2013 release. Nice job so far Marvel!
