Iron Man 3 Started Filming at Epic Games Today. Huh?

Production began today on Robert Downey Jr.'s Iron Man 3 at, of all places, Epic Games, the North Carolina studio that makes Gears of War, according to local TV station WRAL.

(Marvel tweeted a photo from the set, presumably from the North Carolina/Epic shoot.)

"Scenes were being shot inside and outside the Epic Games studios, where a large Christmas tree was set up on the front lawn."

Christmas scene confirmed!

An Epic Games rep declined to comment on the matter.
