IRON MAN 3 Director Shane Black Is Working On A New Avengers Project The British Avengers was a 60s spy show, similar to MAN FROM UNCLE and MISSION IMPOSSIBLE. It had a 1998 film with Uma Thurman, Ralph Fiennes and Sean Connery. "We’re setting it in Britain in the 60’s, and our approach is The Ipcress File meets Doctor Who. At this moment, it’s my favorite thing we’re working on." Well, I can't trust Shane Black since IRON MAN 3, but I like the 60s setting.
