LOL :p
May 6th is a pretty good release date. It'll give the movie a chance to earn some Ca$hola before the other summer blockbusters swoop in

What are they doing filming in NC? It's my home state, but I'm just curious.
SageMode - 11/7/2011, 7:25 PM
@SHHH: It better be Mandarin, or im gonna blow a gasket. Lol

"Iron Man 3 will use about 1,000 extras during the film"

damn! O_O
they must be preparing something really BIG
CaptainAwesome17 - 11/7/2011, 7:26 PM
where do you get information on being an extra
Supes17 - 11/7/2011, 7:30 PM
@spidey91: It might be the total number. Like they might need 500 for a city scene or 300 for a court case, stuff like that. 1,000 is still a very impressive number
Can't wait.

If you guys don't get the joke, FE is the symbol for Iron
Iron Man Fe Male
Get it?:p
ClarkFarley2012 - 11/7/2011, 7:33 PM
I agree. Mandarin must be the villian. Who the heck would play him, Jet Li? Lol jk..
marvel72 - 11/7/2011, 7:35 PM
excellent,hopfully iron man 2 was its third movie curse now we'll get a decent iron man 3.

oh yeah i think its gonna be the armour wars story because at the start of iron man 2 it showed other nations devolping their own iron man armours,maybe thats the route it will take involving the mandarin & ghost.
IDKwhatToChoose - 11/7/2011, 7:36 PM
I would love to see Ghost
FanboyTrump - 11/7/2011, 7:36 PM
I know where you live Shane Black, Ima just say that, Ima just say that
Bodwulf - 11/7/2011, 7:56 PM

Spidey91 - 11/7/2011, 8:07 PM
call me crazy,but I'd like to see a Mandarin like this one:

if anyone knows how to post images I would really appreciate it
NeoBaggins - 11/7/2011, 8:31 PM
Why doesn't he just lose weight and become Tony Stark.
Spidey91 - 11/7/2011, 8:33 PM

I would say Evil German Fascist for the fourth one,but that's more Cap's field :P
NeoBaggins - 11/7/2011, 8:48 PM
If they are talking about shooting, then a villain is written down on paper somewhere. Who is it?
heisei24 - 11/7/2011, 9:11 PM
Hopefully Ghost as the villain.
Curmudgeon - 11/7/2011, 9:20 PM
Old news, and half wrong to boot.

The October Press Release had those exact numbers for crew/talent, but listed completely different months of operation.

As with a lot of other stuff from "On Location Vacations", I think they took part of their "news" from something real (the press release said 550 crew jobs and 1000 talent opportunities) and part of it from old rumors (the May-January shoot dates came from Latino Review's initial rumor about the NC shoot, which were then corrected by the press release.)

1000 Asian extras = Mandarin!

But it really doesn't matter, Mandarin is an international terrorist. He employs henchmen of all races.

devil - 11/7/2011, 10:25 PM
next iron villain sould be
1 mandarin
2 the ghost
3 guardsman

@patrickbateman47 LMAO You need to drop that gif off at the Mickey Rourke thread where nerds went bonkers after he said MARVEL didn't care about substance. You could also drag it across the Immortal thread where the Blade actor said he didn't care to be in a CBM.
Supes17 - 11/8/2011, 3:41 AM
What about the Crimson Dynam-Oh, wait, never mind..
Digitaria51 - 11/8/2011, 6:07 AM
Didn't he already say it wasn't going to be the Mandarin? Wish in one hand, sh*t in the other..

I say The Ghost, Ultron, or, and don't hate me for this, how about Dr. Doom!?
goldenavenger77 - 11/8/2011, 6:44 AM
@ Digitaria51

Wouldn't Fox hold the rights to Dr. Doom?

Love the Iron Man films and he has been my favirote comic book character since childhood. I really don't want to see another armoured villian. We have seen that twice now. If this is the last stand alone Iron Man film then surely we need/should/deserve to see something fantastic.

Mandarin and Fin Fang Foom would be great on screen. You already have the fantasy/magical elment with Thor in this universe, and we know it works quite well so why hell not!

Although I like Iron Man 2 and it grows on me each time I watch it I have always thought Mandarin should have been introduced into it as the man behind Justin Hammer (but not the center of attention). Taken the Armour Wars story line and given it a twist with stealing starks designs and armour to sell and use to build his army or create chaos as Hammer's tech is/proven inferior, all stolen by Taskmaster or something as capable.

I'm sure Black with give us a hell of a movie either way.
goldenavenger77 - 11/8/2011, 6:52 AM
* someone as capable.
ironknight - 11/8/2011, 7:07 AM
I live in NC, but unfortunately I live about 4 hours away from where they are filming. Not exactly an easy trip to find time to make.
namicolo - 11/8/2011, 8:43 AM
United States Marines as extras....there are plenty...don't use the drugged out civilians that live there!!!!!!!!!
MaddMonkk - 11/8/2011, 9:50 AM
ncreb will have his SOAL shirt on in the shoot and it will be our private easter egg.
Thatman12 - 11/8/2011, 11:39 AM
I live near Charlotte and i'd love to be a part of it.
Thatman12 - 11/9/2011, 11:11 AM
@BaneKill77 That's a good idea.

How many memebers live in NC?
