IRON MAN 3 Action To Unfold At Hollywood Landmark; 'Love Triangle' Subplot To Ensue?

IRON MAN 3 Action To Unfold At Hollywood Landmark; 'Love Triangle' Subplot To Ensue?

In addition to details for an upcoming shoot, involving action and a Hollywood landmark, details for a shoot that has already occured may hint a potential 'love triangle' in Iron Man 3.

Potential spoilers surrounding the production of Iron Man 3 should come as no surprise, especially with nearly a month of filming completed. And as it progresses, anonymous tipsters have shared with us details for an action scene that'll be shot this week, along with a scene already shot hinting at the inevitable "romance" in the movie.

One tipster says that the production crew of Iron Man 3 have built- recreated the famous Grauman's Chinese Theater on Hollywood Boulevard over at the National Gypsum in Wilmington, North Carolina, where the bulk of filming takes place. The tispster goes on to say the scenes will involve combat of some sorts, with the extras in the scene being tourists; some costumed as "injured tourists". This night shoot will undergo Thursday & Friday.

A permit for this very shoot was issued to Wilmington last week, where it states that three actors will be present, along with 91 extras. Adding legitimacy to the tipster's claim, the permit also vaguely declared that the shoot will include "exterior building scenes involving special effects and stunts."

In regards to the potential 'love triangle,' or rectangle even, another tipster offers that Pepper Potts actress Gwyneth Paltrow recently shot a rather romantic scene with villain Aldrich Killian actor Guy Pearce. As showcased in The Avengers, Tony Stark and Pepper are in a "committed" relationship. So, will things getting rocky between them be considered a subplot to the anticipated threequel? Let's not forgot that The Town actress Rebecca Hall is playing a "sexy scientist," likely Maya Hansen in the film. A love rectangle perhaps?

Guy Pearce, Gwyneth Paltrow and Robert Downey Jr. on Iron Man 3 set in Raleigh, NC

Described as a “technological crisis thriller,” set in the world of international war, arms & terror, Marvel Studios' “Iron Man 3” stars Robert Downey Jr., Gwyneth Paltrow, Don Cheadle, Guy Pearce, Rebecca Hall, Andy Lau, Ashley Hamilton, James Badge Dale, with Sir Ben Kingsley and Jon Favreau. Shane Black (“Kiss Kiss Bang Bang”) takes over directorial duties from Jon Favreau, who helmed the first two “Iron Man” films. Principal photography will occur primarily in North Carolina and China. And “Iron Man 3” is set for release in May 3, 2013.

himynameisnik - 6/13/2012, 8:50 AM
I'd love for it to be Tony Stark getting a star on the walk on fame, that would be so cool. I don't know if I like Pepper almost cheating on Tony, it doesn't seem very in her character
Lenbert - 6/13/2012, 8:53 AM

I'm thinking they could have saved money on set design by shooting in Chicago's Chinatown. But it's not like Marvel Studios are short on money right now.
thalidomide - 6/13/2012, 9:42 AM
I think I'm going to re-read Extremis. Can't wait to see what the new armor looks like.
reignSupreme - 6/13/2012, 9:56 AM

FightAs0ne - 6/13/2012, 10:24 AM

Bigred20 - 6/13/2012, 11:00 AM

l0rdleg0las - 6/13/2012, 11:23 AM

BernieSanders - 6/13/2012, 11:25 AM

BubblesShedAndBreakfast - 6/13/2012, 11:45 AM

Phlegmbot - 6/13/2012, 2:59 PM
@ Strider: Why shouldn't this be a soap opera? Marvel's comics have been a soap opera since Stan Lee started writing superheroes.
