Not that there was any doubt, of course. But we haven't even seen "The Avengers" yet, and already casting news for "Iron Man 3" is hitting the Internet.
Mike Fleming of Deadline reported that Jessica Chastain is in talks to play "a sexy scientist every bit as smart as Tony Stark" (Robert Downey Jr.). Chastain was very busy in 2011, starring in six movies, including the Oscar-nominated "The Tree of Life" and "The Help."
Then Mark "RorMachine" Cassidey cited a Twitch report on ComicBookMovie.com in saying that "House of Flying Dragons" star Andy Lau is in line to join the cast as well. Here's how his character is described:
“A good guy – a Chinese scientist who comes to the aid of his old buddy Tony Stark by providing him with some new tech that will help him battle Ben Kingsley’s villain, but more importantly Aldrich Killian (Guy Pearce) and his Extremis biotechnology.”
Oh, did we mention Ben Kingsley and Guy Pearce already are signed on? Filming begins next month in Wilmington, N.C.
