Although a release date looms in about half-a-year, filming still pushes onward for Marvel’s Iron Man 3 and we’ve got some new information regarding Shane Black‘s blockbuster today. He was confirmed for the cast back in September, replacing Andy Lau, but this morning we’ve got our first look at Wang Xuequi as Chen Lu, a former scientist who eventually becomes the villain Radioactive Man.
