“Sorry to say that Iron Man 3 isn’t going to work out. My schedule is jammed packed and I can’t fit anything else in. The press announced my possible attachment far too soon. I know many of you wanted me to be involved, and I’m so sorry to disappoint you. Hopefully there’ll be another Marvel film in my future. Shane Black and everyone on the IM3 team are really wonderful. I’m very excited to see the film when it comes out. xx”


Iron Man 3 is expected to begin shooting in the coming weeks, actor Robert Downey Jr. (RDJ) has already been spotted in North Carolina. He can currently be seen in The Avengers, which opened May 4th in the United States and broke the box office.
