Before we proceed with any further info, be warned that even knowing who Pearce will be playing could be considered a spoiler, so those who might cry foul should skip away.
Right then… As has been previously talked about, the plot of Shane Black’s take on Robert Downey Jr's Tony Stark will draw from Warren Ellis' Iron Man: Extremis six-issue run on the comics. It's not all that surprising, since Ellis’ work has been running through the cinematic incarnation of Stark since the first movie.
The third film will see Stark dabbling with nanotechnology, which is created by geneticist Aldrich Killian. When it gets into the hands of terrorists (including, presumably, the recently-cast Sir Ben Kingsley) and a new threat is developed, Tony decides to try his own take on it.
Don Cheadle and Gwyneth Paltrow are slated to be back, and Black, who co-wrote the script with Drew Pearce, will kick off shooting in North Carolina next month. The film is set for release on May 3, 2013.
Pearce (Guy, that is, not Drew) is next slated to appear in Prometheus. So at least he’ll know what he’s getting into in terms of having to stay quiet about plot points…
