Robert Downey Jr. injured filming Iron Man 3
The gears in Iron Man 3 have stopped turning today after its leading men, Robert Downey Jr. took a tumble on the set, forcing filming to cease until the man in the iron suit makes a speedy recovery.
Marvel Studios made this statement on the accident:
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.
It doesn’t look like it will be too long before RDJ is back on set and it’s great to see that he’s committing as much to his avenging alter-ego as he always seems to have done. Get better soon, Mr. Downey. We’ve got a highly anticipated threequel to see, please.
