Can't wait for this! But, here's hoping that The Avengers does great, because if it ends up not working, there's a chance it would ruin the integrity of the Iron Man franchise itself.

Yeah, exactly because of that. And because the overall style is very similar.

Did Marvel really snub Jon Favreau as director of The Avengers?
From Deadline:Favreau's Iron Man remains one of the few truly great superhero movies, so it's sad to read Cinemablend's report, based on an inside source they say has proven reliable in the past. According to this source, Iron Man 2 wasn't the movie that Favreau wanted to make, and he felt it was rushed into production without a decent script. (With only two years between Iron Man and Iron Man 2, and Favreau having complained publicly about the haste in the past, this part sound plausible.)
Cinemablend's source also says Marvel interfered excessively with Favreau's work on the movie, and "turned the project into an infomercial for The Avengers." And Favreau is unlikely to be back for Iron Man 3, both because of this bad experience and because Marvel won't want to pay him what he wants to be paid a second time. The source also claims Robert Downey Jr. saw the same problems, and while he's already locked in for Iron Man 3 and he'll have star billing in The Avengers, he probably won't be back after that.

To me, if you they're gonna try and put all these characters in Iron Man 3, then it kind of ceases to be an Iron Man movie right? Save for a cameo here or there, Iron Man should be about Iron Man.

Will Shane Black Direct ‘Iron Man 3’?
Shane Black is in contention to direct Iron Man 3 for Marvel Studios.
The writer/director has powwowed with Marvel execs about his take on the third installment in the blockbuster franchise. As of now he is being considered for the directing job, but the assumption is that if he gets the gig, he would also write a draft.
Insiders said that Black's involvement is far from a sure thing, and that other filmmakers were being looked at.
Marvel is keeping the story direction of Iron Man 3 -- which returns Robert Downey Jr. in the title role -- secret.
Disney, which owns Marvel, is scheduled to release the threequel on May 3, 2013.
The directing spot recently opened up when Jon Favreau, who directed the first two movies, announced he was departing the franchise.
Iron Man 3 would reteam Black and Downey, who worked together on the well-regarded Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, which Black directed and co-wrote.
Black made his name writing high-profile specs in the 1980s and 1990s and, with movies such as Lethal Weapon and The Last Boy Scout, was one of the top writers in the action genre.
Boarding Iron Man would prove that the vet filmmaker isn't too old for this s***, to borrow a line from one of his movies. Several weeks ago, Black was tapped to write Death Note, Warner Bros.'s adaptation of a manga, and is working on Doc Savage, Sony's action project based on the classic pulp hero.
We’ve known since last month that Kiss Kiss Bang Bang writer/director Shane Black would be directing Iron Man 3. The question that remained was whether he would also be writing the script. As it turns out, the answer is yes. At the Omaha FilmFestival this weekend, Black appeared at a panel and briefly discussed Iron Man 3, including a few details about the script.
According to a report on Ain’t It Cool News, Black is scheduled to meet with star Robert Downey, Jr. this week in order to discuss the screenplay. Downey will be contributing to the script as well, although it is not clear at this point in what capacity or to what extent. The two have worked together previously on the excellent Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, which starred Downey and was written and directed by Black.
Black also said that the studio was not pleased with the direction of Iron Man 2, and that Iron Man 3 would be doing something a little different. Instead of the iron-suited dustups of the first two films, Iron Man 3 will be more along the lines of a Tom Clancy-style thriller, with IronMan fighting “real world villains.”
Also notable is Black’s statement that Iron Man 3 will not feature other Marvel heroes. Way back when plans for The Avengers were first announced, plenty of people (myself included) wondered how Marvel would sustain such a complicated, interrelated universe containing so many different film franchises — or whether it even planned to. As it turns out, the crossovers we’ve already seen were just setting up the stage for The Avengers. After that film comes out in May, Black says, we can expect to see a return to single-character stories. Though I still wouldn’t be surprised to see winking references to other Marvel heroes in Iron Man 3.
All in all, it sounds like Iron Man 3 is headed in a very good direction. Although Iron Man 3 will only be Black’s second directorial credit, he’s already proven himself as a screenwriter with films like Lethal Weapon and The Long Kiss Goodnight. The clever, funny tone of Kiss Kiss Bang Bang proved an excellent fit for Downey’s skills, and if Black and Downey can recapture some of that magic for Iron Man 3, it should make for a very entertaining time at the theater.
From Latino Review:
EXCLUSIVE: Iron Man 3 Is About…
Interesting new cast members so far. :borat
Word is that Lau (or whoever finally lands the role) would play a good guy - a Chinese scientist who comes to the aid of his old buddy Tony Stark (Robert Downey, Jr.) by providing him with some new tech that will help him battle Ben Kingsley's villain
Oh my bad I didn't click on the link to read the article.
But sky is the limit now for choosing Iron Man villains -- after the Avengers movie, its no longer odd to mix in some "mystical" villains in the Iron Man movieverse (something which the first two Iron Man movies had difficulties coming up with).
I still have a feeling the Mandarin would be next. Could be wrong though...
James Badge Dale cast as the villain Coldblood? Cool I wouldn't mind another cyborg.
