Wondercon 2011 in San Francisco celebrated its 25th anniversary over the weekend as one of the most popular comic and popular arts events in the United States. With Wondercon comes plenty of movie news pouring out of San Francisco, amongst the news comes the report that the next film in the Iron Man franchise now has a writer attached.
Drew Pearce is currently rumoured to have been chosen to write the script in for the next Iron Man film, a seemingly interesting selection Pearce has primarily written for the TV series ‘No Heroics’, a UK series set in a bar which turns out to be a popular spot for superheroes to pass the time.
Pearce has also been rumoured to have been attached to write the script for an adaptation of ‘Runaways’, the comic series written by Brian K. Vaughan.
The first ‘Iron Man’ film was released in 2008 with the sequel in ‘2010’, it has been previously confirmed that director Jon Favreau will not be returning to direct the third film in the franchise, which is not scheduled for release until after the first ‘Avengers’ film has seen a theatrical release.
In the meantime with both ‘Iron Man 3’ and ‘Avengers’ still some time away before release, Marvel fans have plenty to look forward in 2011 with the soon to be released ‘Thor’ and ‘Captain America’ adaptations.
