Earlier this spring it was revealed that China would get a special cut of Disney's "Iron Man 3," with additional footage from the Beijing shoot and a special cameo appearance by Chinese superstar Fan Bingbing. This isn't unheard of (a similar situation happened with last year's "Looper") but it is sort of amazing for a movie of this size and scale to be readjusted for an international audience (even one as vast and powerful as China). As Slashfilm points out, co-writer and director Shane Black recently acknowledged that there might be a little something extra in that version. He also commented on what his next, post-"Iron Man 3" project will be (hint: he's been attached to it for roughly one billion years).

Shane Black, who rose to fame penning films like "Lethal Weapon," "The Last Boy Scout" and "The Monster Squad," made his return to Hollywood after a long absence with the witty action comedy "Kiss Kiss Bang Bang." It didn't exactly light up the box office -- it made back its $15 million budget in worldwide gross -- but it did help relaunch the career of Robert Downey Jr. and it proved that Black's sharp pen hadn't diminished.
