Filming for 'Iron Man 3' wraps in Hollywood East


WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- Filming for Iron Man 3 in the Port City wrapped up Wednesday night.

The blockbuster flew into the area this spring, bringing stars like Robert Downey Jr. and Gwyneth Paltrow to town.

Filming took place across the Cape Fear at places such as the State Port and on the Cape Fear River. City leaders say the project pumped more than $80 million into the local economy.

The full trailer for the film was released late last month and the finished product is expected to hit theaters next May.
