See N.C.'s ‘Iron Man 3’ sites

When you watch “Iron Man 3” – which opened May 3 – more than heroes and villains fill the screen. Principal filming was done last year in the Wilmington area, and that part of the coast (plus Kennansville and Rose Hill) serves as stand-ins for California, Tennessee, Florida and Afghanistan.

To mark the North Carolina appearances in the movie, the state tourism division has posted an Internet link that identifies key locations in “Iron Man 3” as well as places visited by stars Robert Downey Jr., Gwyneth Paltrow, Ben Kingsley, Don Cheadle and Guy Pearce.

Go to www.visitnc.com/ironman3.

P.S. The site also has a link to a four-day “Hunger Games” drive; sites are spread from Charlotte to Asheville. Staff Reports
