Movie Trailers, Movies BlogQuentin Tarantino once talked about possibly making a Luke Cage movie. Thanks to MTV.Robert Downey Jr. was in Los Angeles this weekend and Screenrant reports on him talking about Shane Black's relationship to Iron Man before he directed the third film:

I adore him. I've been a fan of Shane Black since I saw 'Lethal Weapon.' When we were doing the first Iron Man, Jon Favreau and I used to call up Shane Black. We had two lifeline calls; one was to J.J. Abrams, which was about the third act. And for the other call, we went to Shane's house.

For instance, in the 'Iron Man' scene where Tony Stark comes back from captivity and calls a press conference, and then asked everybody to sit down, the speech Stark gives all came from Shane Black. So to get him to do 'Iron Man 3,' it has just been this awesome experience and one of my favorite working experiences. 'Iron Man 3? is going to be a very, very bold genre film, from the storytelling.
