Both Scarlett Johansson and Jessica Chastain are out of Iron Man 3, and the studios are looking for an actress to play a big role in the upcoming movie.  Marvel Studios may have found the female lead in Rebecca Hall.

According to Variety, if cast, Hall will play a scientist who plays a pivotal role in the creation of nanotechnology, further solidifying the idea that the third movie will be based on the Iron Man: Extremis storyline by Warren Ellis.

Shane Black is writing and directing the movie, with Robert Downey Jr., Gwyneth Paltrow, Don Cheadle, Guy Pearce, and Ben Kingsley starring.  Iron Man 3 is scheduled for release on May 03, 2013.

    Got the Toys R Us exclusives last week. FWIW Hawkeye comes with two heads (one with the glasses and one without)

    I’m curious how much inspiration they’re going to take from Extremis… I really enjoyed the story, but then again I’m not heavily invested into Iron Man nor upset by the natural power-creep of on-going consistent continuity. I have friends who felt Extremis betrayed the sentiment of an otherwise human (arguably even disabled with a bionic heart) inside a super-suit, by turning Tony into a fast-healing techno-path with retractable sheath armor (stored in the hollows of his bones). Additionally, there is a certain tangibility to Iron Man- an intuitive mechanical sense- even with the magical black-box that is the Arc Reactor… by delving into nanotechnology you risk entering that scifi realm that feels more magical fantasy than grounded in familiar mechanisms.

    All of this is mitigated based on how they decide to adapt and handle Extremis… just curious what their take is going to be.
