Iron Man 3 production halted due to injury on the set

And you thought Robert Downey Jr. didn't do his own stunts. As it turns out, RDJ was injured on the set of Iron Man 3 while performing a stunt and now the movie, as it stands, has temporarily halted production.

The movie is slated to release May 3, 2013 which is less than a year away, let's hope that the injury to his ankle isn't too serious. I need my Iron Man fix after all.

Marvel Studios issued this statement:

"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."

Short delay huh? They must be using some Tony Stark technology to fix that ankle right up.
