Perhaps it's the speculation surrounding as Doc Savage in The Avengers: Age Of Ultron which started this one. I'm not sure. But, word on the street now is that has expressed an interest in directing a Doc Savage movie.
According to HitFix, Black commented that:
Finding the way to get that script correct has been one of the guiding passions of my adult life.
That's nothing if not positive. Black needs to make this happen, because I can't wait to see the Man of Bronze make a return. Shane Black is one of the few directors I'd trust to make it right and I sincerely hope we get to see a Doc movie away from that shambolic treatment of back in 1972. Doc Savage deserves better!
Iron Man 3 has given me a whole new wave of assurance about how Black could conquer the Man of Bronze, and I hope he gets this project on its feet soon. Do you think Doc Savage the right choice for Shane Black? Let us know what you think in the comments.
