Jessica Chastain is the latest talent said to be up for a role in the soon-to-shoot Iron Man 3, Deadline reports.

The Tree of Life actress would play a scientist, said to be the intellectual equal of Robert Downey Jr.'s Tony Stark. Although it's not confirmed, it's possible that the role is that of Dr. Maya Hansen, a character responsible for the "Extremis" nanotechnology that is said to be a key part of the sequel's focus.

The news comes just days after it was announced that Guy Pearce is up for the part of Dr. Aldrich Killian, a character from the popular Warren Ellis storyline.

Written and directed by Shane Black (and co-written by Drew Pearce), Iron Man 3 also stars Robert Downey Jr., Gwyneth Paltrow, Don Cheadle and Ben Kingsley and is set for release on May 3, 2013.
