“We needed a snappy and exciting actor to play the part, and not make it this ‘female scientist who takes off her glasses and suddenly she’s beautiful!’ There’s a certain element about her being the female Robert Downey Jr in a way.” —Director Shane Black on Rebecca Hall, who plays scientist Maya Hansen in Iron Man 3.
