[[wysiwyg_imageupload:4726:]]With Iron Man 3 filming in Bejing, starring Chinese actor Wang Xueqi, and seeking Chinense co-production, Disney and Marvel Studios showed off an Iron Man 3 exhibit in Singapore.
At the 2012 ContentAsia Summit held at the Hotel Fort Canon, three Iron Man suits were put on display with a 3-D model image of the Iron Patriot unveiled as well.
In addition, there looks to be a couple cos-players for the occasion on hand, too.
Chinese Star Wang Xueqi is starring as Dr. Wu in the movie, rumored to be Tony Stark's Extremis Doctor. The Extremis "virus" enables Tony Stark to control the armor through his mind, with the suit even being embedded in the bones of his body (which remains to be seen if they go that route for the movie).
Already in the trailer we have seen Tony Stark utilize his mind control on the armor as well as Dr. Wu performing some sort of operation on Tony Stark.
Previous to the announcement of Wang Xueqi as Dr. Wu, it was rumored he was actually Chen Lu, known as the Radioactive Man in the Iron Man comic books. The Radioactive Man was a nuclear physicist and under the employment of the Mandarin with an accident causing him to be able to manipulate and emit forms of radiation, in addition to his skin changing a greenish color.
Iron Man 3 has a May 3rd, 2013 release date, directed by Shane Black and starring Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark/Iron Man, Gwyneth Paltrow as Pepper Potts and Don Cheadle as James Rhodes War Machine.
