Guy Pearce joining ‘Iron Man 3′
Actor from ‘Memento’ and ‘LA Confidential’ joins Marvel threequel.
First, it was Ben Kingsley being cast as the villain. Now, things get a lot more interesting as ‘Iron Man 3′ adds actor Guy Pearce to the cast as a pretty important character.
Shane Black‘s ‘Iron Man 3′ has added the underrated actor to play geneticist Aldrich Killian. Here is more info about the character from marvunapp:
Through trial and error, the brilliant Maya Hansen constructed Extremis, a bio-electronics package fitted into a few billion graphic nanotubes and suspended in a carrier fluid. The package, when injected into the human genome, was meant to hack the body’s repair center and rewrite the normal human blueprint with a better one. When the human brain is convinced that the Extremis blueprint is the correct one, it shuts the human down, leaving the human needing nutrients intravenously injected during the following days while the body rebuilds. Under the premise that she would use her new creation for military efforts, Maya obtained military funding for her operation.
Maya learned that the military was pulling her funding before she could try Extremis on a live subject. She and her partner at Futurepharm, Aldrich Killian, decided that they should put Extremis into the hands of criminals, then involve Tony Stark’s creation, Iron Man, against the Extremis-enhanced criminal. She figured that if they could thus prove the value of Extremis, it would help her save countless human lives after her funding was restored. She and Aldrich stole Extremis and put it into the hands of terrorists.
Interesting addition to the cast and this might mean that the Mandarin rumor might not be true. But let’s wait and see.
