Robert Downey Jr. has started filming the third installment of “Iron Man” (without his former co-star, Scarlett Johansson) right on the heels of his successful promotional tour for the star-studded blockbuster hit, “The Avengers”-where he also played the suave iron-suited hero.
Unfortunately, the filming will have to be delayed as Downey Jr. accidentally injured his ankle while on set on Wednesday.
Marvel Studios explained in a statement:
“Robert Downey Jr. sustained an ankle injury on the set of Iron Man 3 in Wilmington, North Carolina while performing a stunt.”
The studio added:
“There will be a short delay in the production schedule while he recuperates.”
Get well soon, Robert!
