Iron Man 3 Gets a Writer

Marvel Studios has found their writer for Iron Man 3. Drew Pearce has been given the nod to pen the third entry in the comic-book studio's brightest star, helping to bring structure and balance to the chaotic early beginnings of the film's development.

Deadline has the exclusive scoop on these breaking developments, noting that the Robert Downey Jr. has been signed to reprise his title role. Kiss Kiss Bang Bang director Shane Black has been tapped to helm the piece, and now Pearce will be working on the script. Pearce was previously attached to projects such as Runaways, Marvel's pet project about the youngsters of super villains who use their parents' powers for the betterment of mankind.

The cast and crew of Iron Man 3 has yet to truly take flight, what with all of the other Marvel projects due, but it is also still quite a ways away, debuting in theaters over two years from now on May 3, 2013.
