Congratulations, Wilmington! It’s official, “Iron Man 3” is going to be filmed in our great city.

What does that mean for this great town? For me personally, I picture myself having cocktails with Robert Downing Jr. and exchanging fashion tips with Scarlett Johansson.  Okay so probably that is not going to happen. But Wilmington will benefit greatly from this Blockbuster.

Officials say that the movie should bring in $80 million to our local economy. Also the movie will create 550 employment opportunities and 1000 talent opportunities. That’s good news for this Hollywood of the East. Wilmington wasn’t looking for a superhero, but we found one. Thanks Tony Stark.
