After pretty much destroying the box office this past weekend, and on track to take home a cool $1 billion dollars, "Iron Man 3" is a triumphant return for writer/director Shane Black. And the filmmaker at this point could likely get any meeting in town he wanted to, and will probably get scripts piled up at his door. But having been through the hype cycle one in Hollywood already (detailed in our feature 5 Scripts That Made Shane Black Hollywood's Hottest Writer In The 1990s), he's sticking to project he's been attached to forever.

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).
