WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — After months of waiting, we’re finally getting the first extended look at “Iron Man 3,” which shot in and around Wilmington much of the summer.
Today, Marvel released the first official trailer for the super hero sequel starring Robert Downey Jr., as well as a gallery of photos from the movie. The trailer includes shots from New Hanover Regional Medical Center and stunt sequences shot along the Cape Fear River in downtown Wilmington and at Oak Island. A shot of what looks like the White House was reportedly shot at the Cape Fear Club in Wilmington.
Even though the trailer is available, shooting for “Iron Man 3” continues. Members of the cast have been spotted around Wilmington in recent days, including reports of Don Cheadle at Port City Chop House and Sir Ben Kingsley touring the Battleship North Carolina.
“Iron Man 3” is scheduled to hit theaters May 3, 2013.
