Rebecca Hall in talks for the female lead in Iron Man 3

May. 9, 2012by:
While THE AVENGERS continues to rake in the dough both here and overseas, it's funny to think that IRON MAN 3 is already almost set to begin shooting (happening later this month). And while we just found out that Jessica Chastain would not be taking on the female lead in the Shane Black-directed sequel, Variety now reports that the lovely Rebecca Hall (THE TOWN, THE PRESTIGE) will.

Variety says that Hall "would play a scientist who plays a pivotal role in the creation of a nanotechnology, known as Extremis, that winds up being sold to terrorists." As the name indicates, the film will be borrowing from the six-issue Iron Man: Extremis run by Warren Ellis.

First Chastain and now Hall? It seems that the filmmakers want something more than just a pretty face. Which is f*cking great.

IRON MAN 3 opens May 3, 2013.

I maybe in the minority....

But I much prefer Rebecca Hall to Jessica Chastain. I really liked her since THE PRESTIGE and she made a fullfledged fan out of me after THE TOWN. If I can say, a VAST improvement.

Damn she fine, but this could be a good choice.

She's hot. I don't know why she'd be a scientist.

Yup.

When i think "scientist" I immediately conjure up an image similar to the one at the top of this article.

In fairness when I think of anything, I usually end up thinking of an image like the one at the top of this article.

I'll be honest I've never really been on the Jessica Chastain train from the beginning. She strikes me as bland but that's me. Hall is a HUGE improvement.

I loved Rebecca Hall in things like The Prestige and The Town, and had the privilege of seeing her live on stage when she did some Shakespeare with Ethan Hawke (quite possibly the most entertaining version of the Winter's Tale ever). I can see her taking the place of Jessica Chastain, and yeah she would make a great hot scientist!

I love Rebecca Hall, she's like the British Scarlett Johansson. Very hot and talented. Great casting news.
