Ready, Set, Action: Iron Man 3 Now Films In S. Fla.

MIAMI (CBSMiami) – Have you had a Robert Downey Jr. sighting yet? You might very soon because the Iron Man 3 movie shoot has officially moved from Wilmington, North Carolina to South Florida.

Wednesday, the crew is scheduled to shoot scenes at Vizcaya Museum and Gardens.

Robert Downey Jr., who plays Tony Stark in the superhero saga, has already been spotted on the set in Dania Beach where filmmakers built a phony tiki restaurant at the Dania Beach Bar and Grill and renamed it Neptune's Net, a Malibu, Calif. Seafood restaurant.

Other locations are expected to include Coconut Grove and Pine Tree Drive in Miami Beach.

This is the first time Downey has been back on the set since he injured his ankle six weeks ago, causing a brief production delay.

Filming is supposed to last through September, and take place mostly in and around Miami.

Iron Man 3 is the third and final installment in the solo superhero saga.

It is scheduled to open May 3rd, 2013.

Another big film is also currently filming in Miami. It's "Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters." Other recent film and television projects in South Florida include "Rock of Ages," A&E's series "The Glades," USA's "Burn Notice," Starz's "Magic City," ABC's "Charlie's Angels," and VH1's "Tough Love," among others.
