Downey down! Robert Downey Jr. injured his ankle while shooting Iron Man 3, necessitating a delay in production. Marvel released this statement:
“Robert Downey Jr. sustained an ankle injury on the set of Iron Man 3 in Wilmington, North Carolina while performing a stunt. There will be a short delay in the production schedule while he recuperates.”
Thankfully, “short” does not imply a serious injury, and Downey should be back in action in plenty of time to make the May 3, 2013 release of Iron Man 3 Ben Kingsley, Gwyneth Paltrow, Don Cheadle, Rebecca Hall, Ashley Hamilton, and Guy Pearce also star in the superhero sequel directed by Shane Black (Kiss Kiss Bang Bang).
