When Drew Pearce was named as the screenwriter of Iron Man 3, a lot of fans were disappointed. However, today, according to Cinema Blend, there's no need to stay in a funk, as director Shane Black is going to co-write the movie and make the third installment, which will once again star Robert Downey, Jr., his own vision.

"Multiple, completely trustworthy" sources are cited as the suppliers of this good news. With Black's penchant for R-rated movie fodder (he wrote Lethal Weapon and The Last Boy Scout), Iron Man 3 seems to be in very good hands in light of previous director Jon Favreau's absence.

Iron Man 3 is scheduled to smash into theaters on May 3, 2013.
