Guy Pearce may be added to the Iron Man 3 cast list
— Posted by Ryan
It looks as though Iron Man 3 may have a new cast member. Guy Pearce, who is currently starring in the film Lockout is in a final discussion for playing the role of geneticist Aldrich Killian.
For those who don’t know, Killian was involved with creating the Extremis technology in the more recent Iron Man books/comics. There’s been discussion that this film will involve the Extremis technology but based on the role Pearce would play it looks as though the technology will at least be touched on. I have mixed feelings about involving this story arc in the film. I liked the story but Iron Man went through an assortment of armor modifications and testing before this technology even came about. I’m not going to make a judgement yet but the Extremis project would take the franchise in an entirely new direction by introducing techno-organic experimentation. In my opinion, it seems as though it would be similar to bringing the Sinestro Corp story arc into the Dark Knight franchise which would be difficult. I hope they can pull it off.

When dissecting a film, he focuses on all elements of film-making including some fan/cult factors. He believes that character development is the foundation of a good film and usually starts his analysis of a film from there moving forward. His writing style may be influenced by his background of narrative and argumentative studies in the subject, but he tends to enjoy a more conversational style to better interact with the readers, unlike some other pretentious and pompous writers.
