Guy Pearce in Talks to Appear in <i>Iron Man 3</i>

We recently reported that Ben Kingsley was in talks to join the cast of Iron Man 3 and now, Guy Pearce is the next actor in line to join the star-studded movie. Variety stated that Pearce will make his Marvel Studios film debut as Aldrich Killian. Pearce’s character is a geneticist who develops a viral technology called Extremis that he sells to terrorists. This plot detail in particular borrows heavily from Warren Ellis, who penned the six-issue comic book series Iron Man: Extremis in 2005.

Writer/director Shane Black’s retained much of the same cast for Iron Man 3, with Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark, Gwyneth Paltrow returning as Pepper Potts, Don Cheadle reprising Jim Rhodes/War Machine and Scarlett Johansson playing Black Widow.

Iron Man 3 is scheduled to be released May 2013.
