Superheroes basically dominate our pop culture right now. They’re everywhere! In our movies, on our televisions, on our clothes, in our food! They’re taking over! Good thing they’re the good guys, right?

While, yes, The Avengers is going to blow up the superhero scene there’s still Iron Man 3 on its way. Iron Man 2 may have been a bit of a letdown, but there are still high hopes for a third solo outing for Tony Stark. Reports are they’ve begun set construction on their first location in Wilmington, North Carolina, so hopefully this means filming can start soon! The info comes via ComicBook.com, who are also reporting on the movie’s working title,

Iron Man 3 is currently in pre-production under the code name “Caged Heat.” Comicbook.com has reporters on-site in Wilmington, North Carolina where Iron Man 3 is scheduled to film at EUE/Screen Gems Studios. We’re hearing reports that set construction has already begun. As far as filming, we’re still hearing the target for initial filming will be very early May (with a possibility of late April). Even though Iron Man 3 has been officially announced as filming in Wilmington, the code name “Caged Heat” is still being used by various sources in the local Wilmington film industry.

Ha! Caged Heat. That’s a funny title, can they just keep it for the flick? As a tagline maybe? See, the cage is the Iron Man suit and, oh, you get it? Okay…



The Avengers will be kicking off the summer blockbuster season this year when it releases on May 4th. It’s also expected to be one of the biggest movies of the year, and that’s saying something in a year where we’re looking forward to other HUGE franchise releases like The Dark Knight Rises and The Hobbit. I’m not saying we’re looking at a repeat of 1939, often considered one of the greatest years for movies, but there are A LOT of great flicks to be excited for in 2012.

But I really think The Avengers is going to own 2012, and that’s coming from a devout follower of the Bat. It’s simple, Dark Knight Rises is only Batman, The Hobbit is singular, but The Avengers has Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, The Hulk, Scarlet Johansson’s ass, Hawkeye, Samuel L. Jackson, Agent Coulson and that chick from How I Met Your Mother.

It’s an impressive lineup and one that is primed for marketing. Just look at all this awesome shit you’ll be throwing money at this year!
