According to a secret Marvel source for Latino Review, "it's 90% likely that Iron Man's next Avenger-less outing will be shot in the Port City of Wilmington, North Carolina. It's said to be a massive affair with Marvel taking over 10 sound stages at Screen Gems studios. Sets are likely being built now as production crews have been spotted over the past week. Once the sets are completed this upcoming May, shooting will commence until June."
As the site reminds us, Wilmington was a thriving filming location back in the '80s and '90s, where it was home to The Crow, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Super Mario Bros. and Dawson's Creek. It most recently hosted The Hunger Games and Journey 2: The Mysterious Island.
