IRON MAN 3 Shoot Headed To INDIA; Marvel Also Scouting Country For THE AVENGERS Sequel?
In addition to being reportedly scouted for Marvel's The Avengers sequel, the Republic of India will apparently be utilized and filmed on-location for Iron Man 3 at the end of this month!
Though principal photography for Iron Man 3 was believed to be wrapping this month in the Capital of China, Beijing, the Hindustan Times is now reporting that extensive filming may take place in the Republic of India. Under Shane Black's direction, a group consisting of 12 people will soon fly to India, according to the trade source. “They will be here between January 20 and 24 for an extensive location hunt for certain scenes of the film. They will be visiting Hyderabad and Bengaluru to see how they can use this,” the source says, adding, “In the film, supposedly, Stark will be in India, and the techies here will help him with his technological problems.”
In addition to Iron Man 3, the Hindustan Times also reported, mid last year, that Marvel Studios and The Avengers director Joss Whedon plan to utilize India once more for the anticipated 2015 follow-up to last year's top money-maker. “Maharashtra and some locations up north have apparently been shortlisted as of now,” reveals the source. Anyhow, Iron Man 3 will soar into theaters in a little over 3 months, May 3, 2013; while The Avengers will reassemble on May 1, 2015.
Marvel Studios’ “Iron Man 3” pits brash-but-brilliant industrialist Tony Stark/Iron Man against an enemy whose reach knows no bounds. When Stark finds his personal world destroyed at his enemy’s hands, he embarks on a harrowing quest to find those responsible. This journey, at every turn, will test his mettle. With his back against the wall, Stark is left to survive by his own devices, relying on his ingenuity and instincts to protect those closest to him. As he fights his way back, Stark discovers the answer to the question that has secretly haunted him: does the man make the suit or does the suit make the man?
