'Iron Man 3' Casts China's Wang Xuequi As New 'Dr. Wu': Beijing Filming Starts Monday

Marvel starts filming several Iron Man 3 scenes in Beijing on Monday. And I’ve learned from my Chinese-based movie biz sources that the studio has just cast leading Chinese actor Wang Xuequi as a new character playing “Dr. Wu”. The highly secretive Marvel has been prepping for the shoot for a week in Mainland China. DMG Entertainment is Iron Man 3’s Chinese distributor, and is working to help staff the shoot on the ground. Marvel still intends to file for co-production status – but apparently they have a permit to film and are ready to go on that front. (Cinema, Iron Man 3, Wang Xuequi)

Sounds good. I've seen him in other movies.

Oh yeah he plays some good villains. Ive seen him in Warriors of Heaven and Earth, Sacrifice, Reign of Assassins, and Bodyguards and Assassins.

I'm glad they are actually using a Chinese actor to play a Chinese role.

Hard to imagine they're still filming with a release date planned some time in the next 6-8 months.

with everything coming out in 2015, it's good to hear.

Looking forward. I'm not sure though about the red/white/blue motif of the "other" new Iron Man armor costume which mimics Captain America's.. ( http://au.eonline.com/news/... )
