‘Iron Man 3′ Resumes Filming With Robert Downey Jr.

Iron Man 3 production delay Robert Downey Jr injured Iron Man 3 Resumes Filming With Robert Downey Jr.

Nearly seven weeks ago Marvel Studios halted principal photography on Iron Man 3 due to an injury Robert Downey Jr. sustained while shooting a scene that involved a stunt. He had injured his ankle and since today marks his return to set, it was perhaps more serious than most thought at first.

The incident took place while Iron Man 3 was shooting in North Carolina and yesterday production moved to Miami, Florida, shooting scenes at Dania Beach. Downey was in character as Tony Stark but set photos reveal that stand-in suits of the new Extremis and Iron Patriot armor were involved in the scenes as well.

The official press release that came out at the time of Downey’s injury made it clear that the production delay would not affect the film’s release date, the most important release date of the year, kickstarting the summer tentpole season much like The Avengers did this summer and Iron Man 1 & 2 before it. Downey put smiles on the faces of cast and crew, sharing excitement of his return with his arms wide open.

The following armors were also spotted on set and they’re the same two main designs from the Iron Man 3 artwork that made its way online last week, revealing what appears to be an action sequence where Tony Stark and James “Rhodey” Rhodes’ War Machine (Don Cheadle) team-up.

The yellow-red armor is the Extremis (Mark XLVII) design revealed at Comic-Con and the Iron Patriot color scheme on the other blue armor is a new War Machine suit.

          also, it would be kinda interesting if they introduced Namor the submariner in Cap2(since we dont have a FF to unleash him on new york)

      • ant-man was founder and one of the original member of avengers. black panther starts as an anti-hero at first. :P

      • ant-man was founder and one of the original member of avengers. black panther starts as an anti-hero at first.

    • My top 5 would be.

      1. Ninja “Alien” Turtles
      2. Transformers 4
      3. John Carter 2
      4. Jaws 5
      5. Ghostbusters 3

      DC and Marvel just don’t know how to make great films like these will be! Just saying.

  2. Does anyone know when they are supposed to wrap up filming?

    • I’m giving them the rest of this month to wrap it up…because there needs to be about 4-6 months to do post production.

      • at least that much time in post production, thats why im worrying. though if they finish by the end of the month that would give them exactly 6 months which should be enough time.

        • Keep in mind if they had enough footage to put together the comic con footage, they’ve been already working on post production.

        • im sure they could still do pp while filming. not major scenes but im sure all the major scenes are done now anyway.

  3. if that is in fact the new Extremis suit, shouldn’t it be a little less bulkier? It looks a little bigger then the Iron Patriot suit.

  4. Man, everyone is getting injured during the making of these phase 2 movies. This has got’s to be telling us, phase 2 will be epic!

    • So “everyone” now means 2? :)

  5. I cannot wait for this movie! RDJ looks as happy as ever. Come on Marvel, sign this guy to another multi-picture deal already!

  6. hmmm did anyone else look at the link and notice the name Neptune’s Net? Namor the submariner anyone? just a thought mind you.
    oh an a little subnote, I could be mistaken, but if I remember correctly in my reading of the original comic, the Mandarin’s father was a BRITISH Ambassador. oh and he hated the red army.
    and its great that RDJ is back in action

  7. RBJ is a top actor! Cannot wait for Iron Man 3 to come out. And that goes double for the other movies. Marvel, please just release these movies already and take my money!!!

  8. Wow.

    Is ANYONE looking forward to ” The Wolverine? “

    • sort of

    • Nope.

    • Nope

    • Definitely!

  9. Man, I can’t wait for another Iron Man. The first Iron Man is still my favorite of the stand-alone comic book movies. I don’t know how I would rate it against The Avengers, I kind of see them a little differently.

  10. OMG I’m in the area!!!!!! O_O

  11. i like the new suit more ,because i have read an extremis-line i.m. comic and it fits perfect to the suit from the comic. also i like the -iron patriot- suit.

  12. My top 5 would be.

    1. Ninja “Alien” Turtles
    2. Transformers 4
    3. John Carter 2
    4. Jaws 5
