While Comic-Con is busy bringing all sorts of comic-book marketing to the masses, the stunt folk are busy working hard on the set of Iron Man 3. Filming in North Carolina, an aerial stunt sequence was recently captured by the local news crew.  The footage may be somewhat spoilery only because it alludes to what is certain to be some sort of disaster/rescue sequence, but it also lacks any finished effects or context.  Make of it what you will.

Iron Man 3, directed by Shane Black and starring Robert Downey Jr., Ben Kingsley, Gwyneth Paltrow, Don Cheadle, Rebecca Hall,  Ashley Hamilton, and Guy Pearce opens May 3, 2013.  Hit the jump to check out the footage.

The following footage of a stunt sequence from Iron Man 3 comes courtesy of WECT (via CBM):

As you can see from the above sequence, the stunt has something to do with an aerial rescue or disaster of some kind, or perhaps it’s just a bunch of zany skydivers.  The town mayor did mention that the stunts involved “people jumping out of perfectly good airplanes.” The marionettes dangling from the steel cables were suspended over North Carolina’s Cape Fear river.
