"Rowdy" Roddy Piper Reported Dead at 61
As those set photos demonstrated on Tuesday, filming resumed this week near Dania Beach, Florida, on Marvel’s Iron Man 3 following a nearly six-week break so star Robert Downey Jr. could recover from an ankle injury. But E! Online reports that, despite the delay, the studio is set to debut the teaser trailer in a little less than three weeks: at 12:01 a.m. Oct. 23, to be exact (presumably that’s Eastern Time, but the website doesn’t specify).
Directed by Shane Black from a script he co-wrote with Drew Pearce (No Heroics), Iron Man 3is loosely based on the 2005-2006 “Extremis” story arc by Warren Ellis and Adi Granov in which a criminal is injected with a nanotechnological drug created by the U.S. military in an attempt to replicate the Super-Soldier Serum, triggering a mutation that grants him superhuman abilities.
Opening May 3, 2013, the film stars returning cast members Downey, Gwyneth Paltrow, Don Cheadle and Jon Favreau, joined by Guy Pearce, Ben Kingsley, Rebecca Hall, James Badge Dale and Ashley Hamilton.
