Even though reports surfaced last week that Iron Man 3 had wrapped filming, Iron Man 3 actually continued filming in Wilmington, North Carolina through today. Extra casting calls last week sought a Caucasian male around 6’2 and 215 points with long brown/dark blonde hair long enough for a pony tail to take part in filming this week.
However, WWAY News Channel 3 is reporting that Iron Man 3 has now officially wrapped filming in Wilmington, North Carolina. The Marvel Studios film reportedly pumped more than $80 million into the Wilmington economy.
The majority of Iron Man 3 filming in Wilmington took place at EUE/Screen Gem Studios. Other Iron Man 3 filming locations in Wilmington included the Cape Fear Country Club, the Port of Wilmington, the Cape Fear River, the New Hanover Regional Medical Center, Stevens Hardware, and the Wilmington International Airport.
While filming has wrapped in Wilmington, North Carolina, there is still more filming that will reportedly take place in China. However, unless something has changed since director Shane Black attended San Diego Comic Con, the China filming will not include the main cast and crew. Iron Man 3 is scheduled to be released in theaters on May 3, 2013.
