He might play an unbreakable super hero, but it turns out that Robert Downey Jr is most definitely of the soft, squishy human variety. The actor has been injured on set whilst filming the third instalment of the Iron Man movie franchise.
Thankfully for both Downey and the film makers, the injury is thought to be a relatively minor ankle sprain but it’s serious enough to hold up production for a “short delay” whilst the leading man recovers. The all action actor sustained the injury whilst performing a stunt sequence for the upcoming movie. If it’s anything where near as action packed as the previous two features, you can bet your boots RDJ was attempting something pretty spectacular!
We’re sure that Downey Jr will be all healed up and donning his Iron Man costume again before we know it. In the meantime, the clever peeps in the Party Domain buying department are making sure that we have some great Superhero costumes in stock for any grown ups out there who fancy trying on some fancy dress for size. Who says the kids should get to have all the fun?!
