Shane Black will be taking over the directorial reins from Jon Favreau for Iron Man 3. Black and Drew Pearce wrote the screenplay using Warren Ellis' ''Extremis'' as inspiration (some elements of the Eillis story featured in Iron Man). Shane Black is a former actor, prolific screenwriter and producer. He is probably best known for directing the successful action comedy Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, starring Robert Downey Jnr, Val Kilmer and Michelle Monaghan.
