Thanks to a heads up from @_NerdyGeek_ via @Armageddon26, low-quality video has surfaced of Disney's exclusive visit to the set of Marvel's much-anticipated Iron Man 3! Showing off tons of new footage from the movie, including praised scenes that Robert Downey Jr. shared with actor Ty Simpkins, who's playing a 10-year-old named Harley, there's also revealing behind-the-scenes clips.



Meanwhile, Walt Disney Studios has also provided Stitch Kingdom with their customary fun facts now for the Shane Black-directed Iron Man 3. A few nitpicked below, check the source for more!


  • Marvel’s Iron Man 3 blends two classic storylines from the ‘Iron Man’ comics, bringing Tony Stark’s archenemy the Mandarin into play and combining that element with the Extremis storyline, which deals with the biological enhancement of humans.

  • Production on Marvel’s Iron Man 3 commenced on May 25, 2012, in Wilmington, North Carolina, where the production shot onstage at the Sony Screen Gems Studios and various locations in and around the city of Wilmington. Other filming locations included Raleigh, N.C. and Miami, Fla.

  • Academy Award®–winning actor Ben Kingsley plays the Mandarin, a frightening, modern-day villain bent on destroying Tony Stark and everything he stands for. To define the Mandarin’s persona, Kingsley came up with the Mandarin’s enigmatic voice and costume designer Louise Frogley collaborated with Marvel’s Head of Visual Development, Ryan Meinerding, to pull off a highly original look to his wardrobe.

  • For the first time in the “Iron Man” film franchise, the filmmakers go deeper into revealing more about Tony Stark’s Hall of Amor. The Hall of Armor houses all of the suits that Stark conceived, representing any and all of his ideas regarding suit technology.

  • Marvel’s Iron Man 3 brings back the notable cliffside Stark Mansion. This set was built on a soundstage in Wilmington, N.C. and required 16 weeks of construction and set decoration in order to get it ready. The set was built on an impressive moving gimble, which allowed the entire structure to be tilted 45 degrees and reset at a moment’s notice, providing for the dramatic stunt work required to film the House Attack sequence.

  • For the filmmakers, creating the small town where Iron Man crash lands after his home is destroyed was something that could not be done on stage, so the production headed to Rose Hill, North Carolina. Rose Hill has its own claim to fame for having the world’s largest frying pan, which is 15 feet in diameter, weighs two tons and can cook 365 chickens at a time.

  • Filming in Rose Hill, North Carolina, was no easy task. As if five straight weeks of night shoots weren’t grueling enough, the short summer days made for a tight schedule. The very complicated and elaborate sequences meant that the crew was always racing to complete work before dawn broke.

  • Some of the exterior shots in Rose Hill were winter scenes complete with snowfall. Since it was summer in North Carolina during filming, 90-degree temperatures were common, but the local background extras took it all in stride, despite the fact they were dressed in full winter clothing.

  • The majority of scenes involving The Mandarin (Ben Kingsley) were shot in Miami. Production designer Bill Brzeski created The Mandarin’s compound there by shooting the exteriors on the 10-acre grounds of the Vizcaya Museum and Gardens, a National Historic Landmark built in 1916, and the interiors were shot at a private waterfront residence in South Beach.

  • Prop master Russell Bobbit, who worked on Marvel’s Iron Man and Iron Man 2, returned to work with Marvel Studios on Iron Man 3. One of Russell’s favorite props was The Mandarin’s set of ten rings. Bobbit collaborated with jewelers through several concepts and manufactured specific stones for the rings, giving each ring a custom paint job. The process took a few months in order to get the rings right and ready for Ben Kingsley’s first day. Bobbit was able to use the same ‘ten rings’ images he designed for use in the first Iron Man film.
    Florida pop-art artist Bask was hired to create distinctive artwork for the office and bedroom of the Mandarin’s residence that would mesh with the villain’s persona. Although the basis of Bask’s work is pop art, it is infused with influences from comic books, graffiti and punk rock fliers.

  • Iron Man 3 pairs Robert Downey Jr. and Ben Kingsley working together for the first time. Both actors also played memorable roles in films directed by Richard Attenborough (Downey Jr. in Attenborough’s Chaplin and Ben Kingsley in Attenborough’s Gandhi). The first day they met on set, Downey Jr. and Kingsley snapped a photo together to send to their mutual friend.




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? Starring Robert Downey Jr., Gwyneth Paltrow, Don Cheadle, Guy Pearce, Rebecca Hall, Stephanie Szostak, James Badge Dale with Jon Favreau and Ben Kingsley, “Iron Man 3” is directed by Shane Black from a screenplay by Drew Pearce & Shane Black and is based on Marvel’s iconic Super Hero Iron Man, who first appeared on the pages of “Tales of Suspense” (#39) in 1963 and had his solo comic book debut with “The Invincible Iron Man” (#1) in May of 1968. “Iron Man 3” is presented by Marvel Studios in association with Paramount Pictures & DMG Entertainment. Marvel Studios’ President Kevin Feige is producing & Jon Favreau, Louis D’Esposito, Stephen Broussard, Victoria Alonso, Alan Fine, Charles Newirth, Stan Lee & Dan Mintz are executive producers. The film hits May 3, 2013, and is distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures. Marvel Studios will also release “Thor: The Dark World ” on November 8, 2013; “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” on April 4, 2014; “Guardians of the Galaxy” on August 1, 2014; the sequel to “Marvel's The Avengers” on May 1, 2015; and “Ant-Man” on November 6, 2015!

"kid sidekick"? I hope that's an april fools joke, 3 days early.
blvdnoise - 3/28/2013, 10:30 AM
Kool. Hope the kid doesn't take up too much screen time though..
DrDoom - 3/28/2013, 10:32 AM
I really hope the kid is not around for very long.
ThisIsHeavy - 3/28/2013, 10:36 AM
This could be awful.
R888 - 3/28/2013, 10:39 AM
wow really because of a kid? you people are negative all the time.
R888 - 3/28/2013, 10:39 AM
I don't think the kid will be in that long
Godzillafart - 3/28/2013, 10:53 AM
Too much footage is being released!
Rong - 3/28/2013, 10:55 AM
Clearly you people haven't read the preview by IGN

We then cut to somewhere far away. It’s snowing, as Iron Man makes a hard landing into the snow. A disoriented Tony has no idea where he is, as Jarvis tells him they are in Tennessee. The armor has had it and completely shuts down, Jarvis’ voice dying with it, saying, “I think I need to sleep, sir,” as Tony says, “Don’t leave me, buddy.” Tony lays on his back, trapped by the armor's dead weight when he tries to sit up, until he is able to collapse the armor off his body.

n the middle of nowhere, he begins dragging his armor through the snow…

He comes across a home with an adjacent work garage and breaks in, finding a pretty decent group of tools. He places the Iron Man armor down on a couch, where it sits, looking like a passed out man in a suit of armor.

As Tony begins to make himself at home, a young boy enters the room, shocked when he sees the Iron Man armor and realizes who Tony is. What follows is a very funny scene as Tony and the boy bond, with Tony’s humor undercutting any of the, “Aww, Tony makes friends with a kid!” sentimentality. The boy exclaims how amazing it is that Tony created the Iron Man and War Machine armor and Tony corrects him – the latter armor is now called Iron Patriot. The kid says he thinks that's a cooler name and Tony quickly retorts, “No it’s not.” When Tony asks where the boy’s parents are, he says his mom is working a night shift, and that his dad left years ago and never came back. Replies Tony, “Dads leave. No need to be a pussy about it.”

Tony tells the boy he needs some things... including a sandwich. When they conversation turns towards bullies who bother the boy at school, Tony goes to the Iron Man armor and removes a small device. He gives it to the boy and says the next time he is bothered at school, to use the device – it will offer a non-lethal reaction that will stop him from ever being bothered again. Tony then pauses and says, “You know what keeps going through my head? Where’s my sandwich?”

THEDARKKNIGHT1939 - 3/28/2013, 11:00 AM
Oh God not a [frick]ing kid. WHY
BboiBlack - 3/28/2013, 11:01 AM

Ik right. The trailers and posters are acting like it is such a huge deal.

"Marvel’s Iron Man 3 blends two classic storylines from the ‘Iron Man’ comics, bringing Tony Stark’s archenemy the Mandarin into play and combining that element with the Extremis storyline"

first, they say they take liberties with mandy because there is really no classic/definitive story with mandy. NOW, they are calling a mandy story classic? what's going on here? tomfoolery?

"to pull off a highly original look to his wardrobe."

asian bin laden

"Bobbit was able to use the same ‘ten rings’ images he designed for use in the first Iron Man film."

that's pretty cool
TheJester - 3/28/2013, 11:05 AM
*yawn* now I feel like I have watched the entire movie. thanks a bunch CBM! I now can save my money and wait till the bluray is 10 bucks and not give a flying crap about these movies.
seyrie - 3/28/2013, 11:07 AM
Its kind of a big deal that his Mansion is blown up. Thats his safe heven..literally everything important to Tony lives in that house. His IM suits, Pepper, Jarvis etc.

And the kid isn't in there for very long. Those who have read the IGN review know this
SpoonWielder - 3/28/2013, 11:08 AM
@TheJester

Seriously Jester? You're blaming CBM for spoiling the movie for you? No one told you to come here and click on the article.
Jollem - 3/28/2013, 11:08 AM
@DARKKNIGHT - well, it could be a huge deal i guess. i don't see it, tho. doesn't the dude have lots of money? a damn skyscraper in new york? his suits get exploded? okay, jarvis can just make more
Ocelot - 3/28/2013, 11:08 AM

marvel72 - 3/28/2013, 11:15 AM
less than a month away.
Tempo - 3/28/2013, 11:17 AM
Iron Man 3 Kids friendly

The Disney logic...
Jollem - 3/28/2013, 11:19 AM
^lol!!!
MrMartinMarvel - 3/28/2013, 11:22 AM
I really need to stop reading these articles. WAAAYYYY too many spoilers.
Reviewscrub72 - 3/28/2013, 11:30 AM
whoa hey if you guys search iron man 3 in itunes they have the children books coming out and theres one that shows the suit and it has the hulk bust/igor and this other new one that we havent seen someone post about it
CrashTest - 3/28/2013, 11:31 AM
Yeaaahhh the kid is an element I dont think is needed....damn..crossing my fingers
cmax - 3/28/2013, 11:32 AM
The kid could be cool if they made him more like classic Rick Jones.
TheCaptain - 3/28/2013, 11:52 AM
You guys act like the kid is gonna be in the whole goddamn movie like Short Round chill the [frick] out. And from the footage described with him in it he doesn't sound like a problem.
And I second what @weneedrevelation said.
jimoakley666 - 3/28/2013, 11:55 AM
Who's the irritating child doing the presenting? I'd love to slap that little dip-shit.
Minato - 3/28/2013, 12:05 PM
Some of the things people complain about on IM threads are so nitpicky and then they turn around and praise that so-so Wolverine trailer. SMMFH

BTW Im performing with Project Pat on Saturday in Woodbridge VA. Im excited!!!
Fogs - 3/28/2013, 12:13 PM
@Rong - Thanks for the effort man, when I saw the bitching I thought of that description. But some people don't seem to be willing to understand...
FrenzyFreak - 3/28/2013, 12:15 PM
Yes because a kid is in it the movie is kid friendly. No. The kid's there for like 5 minutes while Tony is in the garage. Oh TDKR had that orphan kid that Blake was friends with, so that must be a kids movie also, right?
silverdog - 3/28/2013, 12:31 PM
always fun to hear fanboys gettting their knickers in a twist over any stupid little detail.. "!!oh no!! a kid is in it for a couple of scenes, how dare they!!"

take a chill pill drama queens. is not like stark is going to give him the iron man armor or turn avengers tower into an orphanage like bruce wayne did.
Franshu - 3/28/2013, 12:37 PM
People, stop complaining about the kid. You're so negative it's just embarrasing.
MisterNiceGuy - 3/28/2013, 2:03 PM
You love the movie, you hate the movie, you love the movie again, you hate the movie again. You guys are ridiculous sometimes. You give the CBM community such a bad rep.
TheAbomination - 3/28/2013, 2:38 PM
I hope that kid's scenes aren't too long. I feel like he could get annoying real fast.
Altair - 3/28/2013, 2:46 PM
Movie's gonna kick ass. Kid's gonna kick ass. I am a little worried about the "don't be a pussy about it" line, that might come off as harsh if they don't do it right.
kemuael - 3/28/2013, 3:43 PM
Kids are Awesome for example: HIT GIRL!!!
NeoBaggins - 3/28/2013, 4:05 PM
Did he crash-land in 1950? Kid IS dressed like Theodore Cleaver.
MercSoul - 3/28/2013, 4:17 PM
i read a rumor of the kid and it says that nes name is Sam Alexander
Minato - 3/28/2013, 4:57 PM
As much as was spoiled about Avengers they kept the biggest moments from being spoiled. Hulk smashing loki, Coulson dying, multiple ship lizards were all surprises to me going into the movie, and I watched/read every spoiler there was. Im sure something sick is going to happen in this movie that no one is ready for.
bsgbumpersticker - 3/29/2013, 4:32 AM
Introducing Harley, the kid side-kick, I think Iron Man might have just "jumped the Stark."
