One of my crew member buddies invited me to the set today to check it all out, and I ended up being put in as an extra in a scene with Ironman and Rhodes! It will be a beach biker bar scene. What an amazing day! I got to see Downey Jr and Cheadle do their stuff, got to see the Ironman and patriot stand in statues (not suits unfortunately.) They were still amazing up close.The Ironman statue was hollow fiberglass and pretty light , one guy carried it to and from the scene with ease. The Iron Patriot statue seemed mostly made of Urethane and it was somewhat flexible. Any reservations I had on the mostly gold Ironman suit have gone away, it was killer. They shot 4 different scenes where I'm pretty much in front of the camera so here's hoping I don't end up on the cutting room floor. I was like 15 feet away from these guys the whole day.. I wish I could have taken pics but I would have gotten thrown out. Downey Jr was hilarious, he is very playful with the extras on the set and the director Shane Black kept playing jokes on us. He was a delight to watch direct. I'm still on cloud 9 from the experience. Just have to say WOW!
