Iron Man 3 Writer

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.

Leith spent most of his formative years growing up on the coastal fringes of Western Australia without a cinema in sight. There he grew up on the wonders of home rentals before relocating to Perth and gaining access to a proper cinematic experience just in time for the Star Wars Special Edition re-releases. From there Leith's love of movies expanded to volunteering on a Star Wars fan film, reviewing films, writing about film news, and attending film and pop-culture related conventions on the other side of the world. Leith's favourite films are too many to mention but all start with the Star Wars saga, Back to the Future, the Dark Knight trilogy, Indiana Jones, Lord of the Rings and all things Kevin Smith. With an insatiable appetite for all things pop-culture related Leith also has an unhealthy addiction to the world of comics and can often be found buried under a pile of unread back issues madly trying to catch up on a number of titles coming out from mostly DC and Darkhorse.
