Iron Man 3

For Iron Man 3 we learn filming will take place in Wilmington, NC from May 21, 2012 to September 7, 2012. The movie will create 550 high-paying jobs and 1000 other opportunities. 1000 extras will be hired including doubles and stand-ins for the film’s stars.

The description of the story was given as well:

In this third installment of the Marvel Studios film adaptations of “Iron Man”, the storyline is being described by writer/director Shane Black as being a Tom Clancy-thriller, with Iron Man fighting real world villains. Black stated “the studio wasn’t happy with the result of Iron Man 2, a result that pretty much came about due to a rushed production in an attempt to hit a release date rather than simply make a good film, but I digress. Iron Man 3 will not be another ‘two men in iron suits fighting each other’.
