Marvel Studios’ latest film Iron Man 3 continues production in China and THR has posted a ‘leaked’ photo of newly-added cast member Wang Xuequi with Iron Man himself. The pair can be seen in front of the Chinese capital’s southern city gate of Yongdingmen (we’ve also included the two previously-released images of Xuequi). Wang Xuequi joins the film as an original character created specifically for the film named Dr. Lu.
The film pits brash-but-brilliant industrialist Tony Stark/Iron Man against an enemy whose reach knows no bounds. When Stark finds his personal world destroyed at his enemy’s hands, he embarks on a harrowing quest to find those responsible. This journey, at every turn, will test his mettle. With his back against the wall, Stark is left to survive by his own devices, relying on his ingenuity and instincts to protect those closest to him. As he fights his way back, Stark discovers the answer to the question that has secretly haunted him: does the man make the suit or does the suit make the man?
Also starring Robert Downey Jr., Gwyneth Paltrow, Don Cheadle, Guy Pearce, Rebecca Hall, Stephanie Szostak, James Badge Dale with Jon Favreau and Ben Kingsley, Iron Man 3 opens in North American 3D and 2D theaters on May 3, 2013.
