Jessica Chastain Exits Iron Man 3

Remember that Oscar-winning actress Jessica Chastain was attached to star in Marvel threequel Iron Man 3? Well, about that… Chastain is a notoriously prolific actor, so it might not come as a surprise to you that she’s not going to star in Iron Man 3 after all, due to prior commitments. She said this on her official Facebook page:

“Sorry to say that Iron Man 3 isn’t going to work out. My schedule is jammed packed and I can’t fit anything else in. The press announced my possible attachment far too soon. I know many of you wanted me to be involved, and I’m so sorry to disappoint you. Hopefully there’ll be another Marvel film in my future. Shane Black and everyone on the IM3 team are really wonderful. I’m very excited to see the film when it comes out. xx”

Iron Man 3 is released on May 3, 2013, and stars the usual Iron Man regulars, Guy Pearce and Andy Lau. Well, we think they’re starring in IM3 anyway. You never know.
