The Avengers is doing so well at the box-office that Marvel has decided it will increase the budget for Iron Man 3.
Latino-Review reports that the budget has expanded from $140 to $200 million. What that extra budget will be used for isn’t yet known, though you can expect a larger pay day for actor Robert Downey, Jr to be part of it.
Much of the story for Iron Man 3 is still under wraps, but the current buzz is that it will likely feature the Mandarin, with a storyline based around the Extremis nanotechnology. An extra $60 million in effects could go a long way toward selling it.
