Despite rumors that Jessica Chastain would have a role in the upcoming Marvel “Iron Man 3” film, the actress tells fans that she has been forced to back out of the film due to scheduling conflicts. Though the Oscar-nominated actress was in negotiations, they recently came to a halt.
“Sorry to say that Iron Man 3 isn’t going to work out,” she wrote on her official Facebook page on Sunday. “My schedule is
jammed packed and I can’t fit anything else in.”
It seems that her involvement was announced prematurely. “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,” she says.
The film also won’t feature Scarlett Johansson as Natasha Romanov, AKA Black Widow.
