WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- "Iron Man 3" will soon be flying north to Duplin County. Locals have noticed crews building sets around town and even putting up Christmas decorations.
Town Hall confirms it is for "Iron Man 3," which is code named "Caged Heat." The town says shooting starts later this month.
Before that, the "Iron Man" team has several shoots set for Wilmington. Friday the production has permits with the city to return to National Gypsum near the port, where scenes were shot last month. That day the cast will also shoot at Stevens Hardware on Dawson Street and New Hanover Regional Medical Center.
Meanwhile, the Nicholas Sparks book turned movie "Safe Haven" is slated to shoot in Southport during the NC 4th of July Festival.
