As audiences are bracing themselves for The Avengers to be released on May 4, pre-production is moving briskly for Iron Man 3. Guy Pearce has just been cast to play Aldrich Killian, a geneticist seen in the story, Iron Man: Extremis, one of the more essential, modern-day stories told in the Iron Man comics, written by fan-favorite scribe Warren Ellis and stunning art by Adi Granov.
Pearce, who can currently be seen in Lockout and in Prometheus this summer, will fit perfectly in this role and finally make his Marvel Studios film debut. It was always my dream casting that Pearce would play Daredevil one day. He has the acting chops and slender but muscular build that Matt Murdock exhibits in the comics. He was offered the role for the 2003 film because it “wasn’t his cup of tea” and turned it down. The role eventually went to Ben Affleck »
