A recent casting announcement for Marvel’s Iron Man 3 reveals the return of a certain character some folks weren’t sure would make it through this summer’s blockbuster The Avengers, The Daily Blam points out.
Rumors had been spreading that Black Widow wouldn’t survive the attack from the unnamed alien invaders but, if this casting announcement is to be believed, she will appear in the third Iron Man along with Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark, Don Cheadle as James “Rhodey” Rhodes and Gwyneth Paltrow as Pepper Potts.
More than a thousand extras have been called for in North Carolina for the film directed by Shane Black, who worked with Downey on Kiss Kiss Bang Bang. This new film is set to start filming in North Carolina on May 21. Iron Man 3 opens May 3, 2013.
