Robert Downey Jr., Iron Man to face international threat?

By Sean O’Connell Shane Black, recently hired to helm an announced third installment of the “Iron Man” franchise, opened up a little about the direction of his sequel.

While speaking at the Omaha Film Festival Black told the crowd (via AICN) that he’s about to meet with “Iron Man” star (and “Kiss Kiss Bang Bang” collaborator) Robert Downey Jr. to figure out where the story’s going to go next. Black reportedly inclined that the studio wasn’t too happy with the direction “Iron Man 2” took – though Jon Favreau might disagree – and hinted that in the third installment, Iron Man will return to fighting international threats.

In the article, Black seemed to confirm that “Iron Man 3” will be a standalone story, and will not tie into any other Marvel properties. Krullboy, who filed the news for AICN, says the crossover stories that built to “The Avengers” will stop, and each Marvel character will go back to individual stories for Iron Man, Thor, Captain America and so on.

That’s good news. There are an infinite amount of superhero stories that can be told for each character. But let’s hope Marvel doesn’t eliminate the idea of a crossover at some point, because I’m sure after “The Avengers,” we’re going to want to see some of these superpowered saviors assemble on screen one or two more times.
