Things seemed to change eariler this month though when Marvel Studios hired screenwriter Drew Pearce to pen "Iron Man 3". Marvel was said to be impressed with Pearce's draft of "Runaways" (which is now on hold) which is why they hired him to write "Iron Man 3". Since Shane Black was only officially hired to direct the film, most assumed that perhaps he was only going to helm the film and Pearce would write it. Now recent reports seem to indicate that Black will be co-writing the script with Pearce.
