EXCLUSIVE: I’m told that Jessica Chastain is back in the mix to play a starring role opposite Robert Downey Jr in Iron Man 3.

The role is a sexy scientist every bit as smart as Tony Stark.


Chastain, who last year starred in The Tree of Life, The Help, Take Shelter and The Debt, was originally offered the role but it looked like she was going to be preoccupied making a movie with Joel Edgerton and Samantha Morton.

I think that movie was The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby.

She also had scheduling issues involving the Kathryn Bigelow-directed Sony Pictures film about the hunt for Osama Bin Laden.

Marvel then began lining up meetings with actresses like Diane Kruger, Gemma Arterton and Isla Fisher.

But all that has changed as Chastain’s movie has been pushed, the Bin Laden scheduling was worked out, and it looks like she’s going to get the role after all.

She will join Downey, Gwyneth Paltrow, Don Cheadle, and potentially Guy Pearce and Ben Kingsley in the third installment of the Iron Man trilogy, this one directed by Shane Black.

Some follow-up articles have indicated that the role is that of Dr. Maya Hansen, a character responsible for the "Extremis" nanotechnology that is said to be a key part of the sequel's focus.

Looks like Shane Black is putting together a nice little cast for Iron Man 3!

Will Jon Favreau still be Iron Mans driver?

That would be kind of awkward...

I like redheads.

Terry Malick seems to like her, which is a good sign.

I saw The Help (unfortunately) but don't remember her from it.

Extremis could be interesting. Probably not what I would pick, but they might incorporate other stuff into it as well.

I like Don Cheadle, but I rolled my eyes every time he was on screen in IM2.

Terrence Howard nailed that role and despite him not getting along with RDJ they had good chemistry (that might've actually helped lol.)

Don Cheadle just phoned it in and had absolutely zero chemistry with RDJ.

She was ok in ToL, I didn't really have a positive or negative reaction to her character/acting.

Who am I kidding though: they could clone Olivia Munn, have her replace JARVIS and Pepper and I would still see it day one.

Is that the reason why they didn't bring Howard back?

But yeah, Terrence is better for the Iron Man films.

Having read extremis I still wonder how much it'll follow the book. For those who haven't it was marvel trying to give tony stark the equivalent of a mutant power. Nanomachines hide his iron man suit within his DNA so he just wills his suit to appear on his body. Kind of a dumb concept but it was a pretty good read actually. I just don't know how well some of those ideas will play on the big screen.

The motion comic for the Extremis arc is available on Netflix.

Sorry, but TH sucks in Iron Man. That's just the way it is. DC isn't perfect, but he's way better in that role than TH.

Pretty damn good cast lined up for this one. Assuming Ben Kingsley doesn't sleep through this role like he's been doing for the past long while.
