"Robert Downey Jr sustained an ankle injury on the set of Iron Man 3 in Wilmington, North Carolina while performing a stunt. There will be a short delay in the production schedule while he recuperates," reps for the company confirmed in an official statement.
Downey will once again appear as superhero/billionaire Tony Stark in the film, which will co-star Gwyneth Paltrow, Guy Pearce and Sir Ben Kingsley.
He has previously spoken on the physical nature of the "Iron Man" films, saying:
"I feel like I don't know where you go after Iron Man 3. Leave it all on the field, you know?" he said to ew.com.
