IRON MAN 3 To Commence Filming A Week Before THE AVENGERS Release?
As we approach the May 4, 2012 release date of Marvel's long-awaited superhero flick, The Avengers, the studio is already readying production for their seventh independently-produced film; Shane Black-directed Iron Man 3.
While it said principal photography would begin "late May," recent reports seems to contradict that, suggesting that Iron Man 3 will begin shooting much earlier than expected. Check it out!
It was reported that principal photography for the third installment would not begin until after The Avengers' release, in late May, however, questionable sources of ComicBook have learned it will be sooner.
Previous reports have listed late May as the official production start date, but one source told us that Marvel “will have staff in Wilmington as early as mid-March, with shooting scheduled to begin the last week of April or the first week of May.”
“Everyone knows that the Avengers film is the closest thing to a sure thing this summer,” said another source. “People can’t stop talking about it, so it’s in Marvel’s best interest to pump up Downey and Iron Man while ‘The Avengers’ is going full steam.’ “
Considering this may intervene with the colossal amount of press 'Tony Stark' actor Robert Downey Jr. will be partaking for The Avengers, it's possible the above claims are invalid. Therefore, take this news lightly, but if true, we'll know in a couple months.
In addition to Downey Jr., Gwyneth Paltrow and Don Cheadle will be reprising their roles respectively.
Marvel Studios presents in association with Paramount Pictures “Marvel’s The Avengers”--the super hero team up of a lifetime, featuring iconic Marvel super heroes Iron Man, the Incredible Hulk, Thor, Captain America, Hawkeye and Black Widow.
