Iron Man 3 To Blow Up Movie Theater Post The Dark Knight Rises Massacre; Or Was it Re-Written?



A new scene description for Iron Man 3 has surfaced which apparently reveals a movie theater in Afghanistan getting blown up.

Master Craftsmen Services posted an image and a description on their Facebook page revealing they did work for Marvel Studios while filming in Wilmington, NC.

Iron Man 3. Ok, it is a little shameless to put my own picture in the post. We recently completed the theater seats that will be replicated through digital magic to make a whole theater. These will be blown up in their movie location set in Afghanistan. This is the 8th Iron Man 3 project we have completed.

Movie goers will recall that during a premiere of The Dark Knight Rises, a lone gunmen entered an Aurora, Colorado movie theater wearing body armor and wielding numerous weapons resulting in the deaths and injuries of dozens.

A trailer for another Warner Bros. movie, Gangster Squad, revealed a similar scene which was quickly taken down and has since been re-written.

The above mention of the Iron Man 3 Afghanistan scene seems to corroborate earlier reports of a drone attack; however, there has also been mention of a scene re-write as well.

Could Marvel Studios be re-writing the Afghanistan movie theater scene that was blown up as it seems to be considered in poor taste?

Iron Man 3 blasts off May 3rd, 2013 directed by Shane Black and starring Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson (Black Widow), Gwyneth Paltrow and Don Cheadle.

With his back against the wall, Stark is left to survive by his own devices, relying on his ingenuity and instincts to protect those closest to him.
