Last weekend at Comic-Con, Shane Black was enthusiastic about the work they’ve put into ‘Iron Man 3’ so far. Apparently they’re about halfway done and the director proclaims that “If [they] don’t fuck up the rest, it’s going to be great!” Well, people have been spying on the production down in Wilmington, NC to see just exactly how things are going and from that we’ve gotten some interesting unauthorized set photos, like the first look at the Iron Patriot armor, and now a few more have leaked online.

Recently, Star News (via Geek Tyrant) acquired some shots of the crew shooting a stunt with rigs that suspended actors over the Cape Fear River. In the photos, you can see what appears to be military personnel and flight attendants, in addition to Iron Man, so it may appear that the stunt involves Tony saving passengers from an airplane.

It’s also interesting to note that due to the placement of the cameras, rather than a stuntman, that might actually be Robert Downey, Jr. up on the rig. If that’s the case, note his shorts and sneakers. A man should be comfortable at his workplace, but this man is taking it to a whole new level.

No word on what exactly this stunt is for yet, but maybe we’ll see it in trailers or clips before the movie is released. For now, check out a few of the set photos below:
