Iron Man 3 filming delayed due to injury of Robert Downey Jr.

— Posted by The "Superior" Anthony

Robert Downey Jr. is a hard working individual. The guy barely had enough time to bask in the success of the Avengers flick before he had to suit back up and get back to work for the next Iron Man installment that’s been filming for the last few weeks. Well it seems that he had a bit of a mishap on the set of the film and suffered an injury which will delay filming of the film while he recovers.


“Robert Downey Jr. sustained an ankle injury on the set of Iron Man 3 in Wilmington, North Carolina while performing a stunt. There will be a short delay in the production schedule while he recuperates.”


Oddly enough, in chatting with Downey Jr. at Comic-Con last month, he said the following about participating in dangerous stunts himself:

“Well I don’t know. I just said while I’m physically able I’d like to leave it all on the field and I’d like there to be ten moments where people wonder how I was stupid enough to actually do that stunt. Most of all me.”

Wow. The general assumption is that he sprained his ankle or something which would prohibit him from participating in any scenes that involve a good amount of movement which is understandable. A little bummed out but it also excites me to see the finished product.
Please feel Better and get well soon Mr. Downey Jr.
