Looks like the rumors are true. When Iron Man 3 debuts in May next year, we'll be able to see Tony Stark soaring his way through Miami.
The Miami-Dade County Film & Entertainment Office has confirmed that Iron Man 3's production team will touch down in the 305 this summer -- and yes, parts of the new sequel will be set in Miami.
"We're really, really excited that the film is coming, and that Miami
will be represented," said Sandy Lighterman of the Miami Film Office.
