Iron Man 3 Set Photos

The filming for Iron Man 3 has moved to Beijing, China. A few intriguing set photos have emerged, you can see them below.

That isn’t Robert Downey Jr in that armour and don’t expect to see any of the other cast to be there either. It might seem strange to film there for all of one week but it’s all because of Marvel‘s deal with Chinese company DMG for the film to be a co-production. The film is being distributed by DMG in China and will be released there May 3rd (same as America).

Earlier this week it was also announced that Wang Xueqi was cast as Dr Wu. Wang Xueqi has been a big part of the Chinese film industry for over 25 years and is well known over there (dubbed the Sean Connery of China by some). No doubt this was another move designed to build favour from the Chinese market.

This is also the last week of filming (wrapping up on December 17th) which means it’s almost time for the film to fully move into post-production. Hopefully we might be treated to another trailer soon (one can dream can’t they?). It’s actually surprising there hasn’t been one this week with the large influx of trailers in time for Christmas.

Iron Man 3 is due for release in the UK on the 26th of April. It’s being directed by Shane Black and stars Robert Downey Jr, Gwyneth Paltrow, Don Cheadle and Ben Kingsley.
