Why Iron Man 3’€™s Director Ruled Hollywood

Why Iron Man 3’€™s Director Ruled Hollywood:

In his screenplays, populated with broken men who rouse themselves from hangovers and beatdowns to defeat the bad guy, it’s Black himself who emerges as the movie’s most charismatic antihero. He might be a loose cannon with unorthodox methods, but you can’t deny that the man gets the job done.

I find this fact the best and worst thing about Shane Black movies — but still interesting to see how far his voice permeates the script. And a good lesson about breaking “the rules” to win the game.
