Even with the movie hitting theaters in just a few months, it’s never too late to add some new actors to the “Iron Man 3” cast, is it?
The latest actor to join up with Tony Stark is Chinese star Wang Xuequi. Deadline reports that Xuequi will play the part of Doctor Wu, a new character introduced in Shane Black’s third “Iron Man” film. His casting comes as Marvel Studios and DMG Entertainment team up to shoot portions of “Iron Man 3” in Beijing this week.
It was previously reported that Xuequi would be joining the “Iron Man” cast as Chen Lu, a scientist who ultimately becomes the villainous Radioactive Man. Those reports are untrue, according to what Deadline was told; Xuequi’s character “is not a huge part.”
Xuequi joins an impressive cast list that includes Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark, Gwyneth Paltrow as Pepper Potts, Don Cheadle as James Rhodes, Rebecca Hall as Maya Hansen, Guy Pearce as Aldrich Killian, and Ben Kingsley as The Mandarin.
“Iron Man 3” hits theaters on May 3, 2013.
