Production on "Iron Man 3" has been suspended after leading man Robert Downey Jr. injured his ankle while performing a stunt. "There will be a short delay in the production schedule while he recuperates," Marvel Studios said Wednesday in a statement regarding the incident which happened on the film's Wilmington, North Carolina, set.
With a budget said to be in the $200-million range, every day Downy Jr. is not working is major money down the drain. The silver lining: It's a Marvel production! With the success of "The Avengers," which has made nearly $1.5 BILLION worldwide, they can afford it.
