Success Of THE AVENGERS Leads To IRON MAN 3 Budget Increase; Production Details Revealed

After the massive success of Marvel's The Avengers, Marvel Studios has reportedly given Iron Man 3 a huge budget increase. We also have a few brief details on some of the set construction talking place in Wilmington, North Carolina.


According to the ever reliable lads over at Latino Review, the budget for Iron Man 3 has been increased from $140 million to $200 million following the box office success of Marvel's The Avengers. The success of the superhero ensemble has apparently resulted in the studio deciding to spend a lot more on their solo efforts, and Shane Black has been tasked with not only making the best Iron Man movie yet, but also the best Marvel movie too (so, uh, no pressure then...). The site also reveals that they were in Wilmington recently (visiting the set of another film which was being filmed there) and spotted the construction of what they describe as, "a large underwater tank and what looked like the interior of a jet fuselage (though it could also be some fancy windows in an underwater structure, it was just a skeleton when I peeped it)." The fact that Marvel Studios decided to up the budget can surely only be good news for fans. Principal photography officially kicked off on Iron Man 3 today so stay tuned for more details over the coming weeks and months.
