Additional IRON MAN 3 Filming Underway in Beijing
Though nothing too revealing, more filming for Iron Man 3 is underway with Chinese actors Wang Xuequi & Fan Bingbing captured shooting a scene seemingly involving the extremis virus.
Along with the year 2012, principal photography for Iron Man 3 was scheduled to end last month in December. Recent videos and photos from Beijing, however, reveal that some filming for the Marvel superhero thriller is still very much underway. Likely for reshoots, Chinese actors Wang Xuequi and Fan Bingbing were both spotted in their surgeon garb, as seen in the teaser trailer, shooting a scene seemingly involving the extremis virus. Check the video, photos & potential story details below.
While Wang Xuequi officially joined the cast last month, Fan Bingbing's inclusion in Iron Man 3 surfaced back in May; when Andy Lau was in talks for the 'Dr. Wu' role. Those reports not only revealed that Bingbing will play Xuequi's wife, but also disclosed alleged story details. [spoiler]
“The film will involve the daughter of Tony Stark’s friend being kidnapped and brought to China. In order to save his friend’s daughter, he flew over from America to China to seek help from Dr. Wu to strengthen his abilities to help fight The Mandarin.”
