Peter David, known to comic book readers for his lengthy runs on The Incredible Hulk and Supergirl announced on his website,, that he has been tasked with writing the novelization of Iron Man.

The major project at the moment is one that I've not announced before this: I'm writing the novelization for the upcoming Iron Man movie which will be hitting theater in May of 2008. The novelization will be published by Del Rey. The deadline on the book is tight, but I should have no trouble hitting it. Rock solid script (although naturally I can't go into any details.)

David has previously written the novelizations of several other superhero films, including The Rocketeer, Batman Forever, Fantastic Four, Hulk and all three Spider-Man films.
