Marvel Iron Man 3
Production Has Started!


You know what a HUGE, huge, huge, huge (HUGE) Robert Downey Jr. fan I am so you know I’m all tingly after reading the email about Iron Man 3 being in production! Word from the studio is that this will be released in theaters May, 2013. I do not think I can wait. For real. Like a small fry waking up on Christmas morning and having to wait for his parents to eat breakfast or something crazy before opening presents!

Here’s the highlights:

BURBANK, Calif. (June 4, 2012) – Following in the footsteps of the record-breaking Marvel Studios’ release “Marvel’s The Avengers,” production on the highly anticipated film “Iron Man 3,” directed by Shane Black, has commenced production in Wilmington, North Carolina. The production schedule will also include locations in Raleigh/Durham, North Carolina, Miami, Florida and China. (squeeee)

Based on the ever-popular Marvel comic book series, first published in 1963, “Iron Man 3” returns Robert Downey Jr. (“Iron Man,” “Marvel’s The Avengers”) as the iconic Super Hero character Tony Stark/Iron Man along with Gwyneth Paltrow (“Iron Man,” “Iron Man 2,”) as Pepper Potts, Don Cheadle (“Iron Man 2”) as James “Rhodey” Rhodes and Jon Favreau (“Iron Man,” “Iron Man 2”) as Happy Hogan. Set for release in the U.S. on May 3, 2013, Marvel’s “Iron Man 3” marks the second feature to be fully owned, marketed and distributed by Disney, which acquired Marvel in 2009.

See what I did there? If you just read the bold words, that’s all you need to know to be assured two things. 1st – I’ll be waiting in line at midnight to see it open (unless of course, I get to go to this premier, *hint *hint) 2nd – It’s going to be a HUGE, smashing hit!
