Robert Downey Jnr spied on set of Iron Man 3…

May 24th, 2012 by Kelly 1 Comment

Word on the Chitauri-torn street is that Iron Man 3 started principal photography yesterday in Wilmington, North Carolina.

The film looks to have been given a budget boost after worries of Marvel Studios’ return to a stand-alone hero film falling short of the mark after the big-budget ‘Avengers: Assemble’ ($220 million). Rumour has it, the budget of $140 million has now been bumped to the $200 million mark.
The film’s not-so-secret codename is ‘Caged Heat’, which isn’t much of an improvement on ‘Group Hug’; apparently assigned to Avengers/Avengers: Assemble during filming.
Robert Downey Jr has already been spied on set, and we can’t help but wonder when he will be joined by the inimitable Ben Kingsley, who is cast in the villain role of Mandarin.

Kelly has been a Star Wars enthusiast since birth and while new to the Marvel and DC Universes, laps them up faster than Odin steals Jotun babies. In her spare time she enjoys marathon-watching Buffy, rereading old books, dancing quite well, acting the lig, singing quite badly and formulating devious plans for world domination over some Shakespeare and a cuppa. If she isn't writing something abstract for her own enjoyment, or an article for Following the Nerd, she can be found trooping with the Emerald Garrison or storming the Death Star (sometimes both). She loves strawberries but hates bananas and thinks Loki just needs a hug. Her chosen superpower would be flying, and she thinks daffodils are ugly. She's also a Malteser - natural blonde but dyed brunette, though that's not really relevant, is it?
