Guy Pearce In Talks To Join ‘Iron Man 3′ As Aldrich Killian

Sometimes casting the awesome Ben Kingsley as the villain of a movie isn’t enough. Sometimes a movie like “Iron Man 3” has to take it one step further in the realm of bad ass and hire someone like Guy Pearce to round out the cast.

According to Variety, the actor soon to be seen in “Prometheus” is in final negotiations to star alongside Robert Downey, Jr., and Sir Kingsley, as the character Aldrich Killian.

It has been confirmed for a while that Shane Black’s “Iron Man 3″ will be based on Warren Ellis’ six-issue “Extremis,” a source material for Jon Favreau’s first “Iron Man.” In the story, a new kind of one-shot nanotechnology, called Extremis, falls into the hands of terrorists, and it’s up to Tony Stark to stop them.
