Iron Man 3 Delayed

Calm down, its production wise

By Robert T. Trate     -

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).

What the...!?! Can't they afford to buy little slave children to leap under him and take the brunt of the impact for him!?! A bowl of gruel and a straw cot is all you gotta pay them!

 Those old bones are getting brittle.  Can't have Tony Stark walking around on a crutch.

Wow, that headline made my heart skip a beat. Nothing serious apparently, now I can relax.

An ankle injury can happen to anyone at any age. I rolled mine when I was 26, tore a ligament and chipped a bone, that's when I gave up trying to emulate Michael Jordan.

Not so bad as the headline says. A lot of studios change their shooting schedules when stuff like this happens. They are pros for a reason.

As for Downey..c'mon don't have to be macho to brag about doing your own stunts. I think actors feel like they want to prove something when they do their own stunts. They shouldn't because they don't realize if they get hurt, production schedules can get messed up.

Shoot him w/ some painkillers and commence shooting!

Can't they give him one of those Bruce Wayne instant heal things? Put it on the ankle then you can kick through a brick wall.

Robert Downey Jr. is 47 years old, soon they will have to CGI his running and other action scenes in. Just kidding, I hope I look as good as him in a few years when I hit 47.

 That's your headline??? He could be out only ONE or TWO days. Unless his leg was BROKE, this means nothing. Weak, weak, weak.

Send gim to Bane's "Hell on Earth" prison for a couple weeks; he can get Physical Therapy for his ankle and watch TV since nothing bad actually happens there.
