injury

Bringing those incredible action movies we all love to life is no easy task, especially for the actors and their stunt stand-ins who recreate insane and dangerous scenes for our viewing pleasure. Over the year’s we’ve all read tragic stores of a stuntman losing his life while one set or actors injuring themselves when they push too far, and today’s story is no different, but thankfully the injured party is reportedly one the mend.

Jaimie Alexander has been on set in London filming for Thor: The Dark World where she plays the Asgardian warrior, Sif. On Monday she sent out this tweet which had everyone pretty worried,

There’s been no explanation about what the “pretty horrible injury” was, but Alexander tweeted out on Tuesday that all was well,

Well, that’s a relief! We here at Nerd Bastards are hoping Alexander recovers quickly, we need her at her fighting best to help Thor defend Midgard, Asgard, and whatever other realms are being threatened in the upcoming sequel.

Word on the street is that production of Iron Man 3 has been put on hold.

GASP!  The horror!

Robert Downey Jr. suffered an ankle injury while performing a stunt on Shane Black‘s set and production will be delayed a bit while his body puts itself back together.  It doesn’t seem like something that will impact the release date in any way.  And I find it hard to believe that there aren’t other things that the studio can work on in the meantime; rearranging production schedules can be a bitch, but it certainly isn’t impossible.  In any case, there will be a bit of a hiatus and this is absolutely, absolutely, breaking news.  He’ll be fine before y’all know it, in case some of you were worried about not getting your Tony Stark fix.

This is the official statement that Disney (masters of Marvel) released:

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.
