Robert Downey Jr. has suffered an injury on the set of "Iron Man 3," Disney said Thursday. The incident will delay production.

The studio released the following statement: "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."

Footage from "Iron Man 3" debuted at Comic-Con in July. The clip, which showed Downey Jr's Tony Stark putting on his trademark suit, was well-received by the assembled journalists and Marvel acolytes. Sir Ben Kingsley co-stars as the film's villain (The Mandarin), and Gwyneth Paltrow, Don Cheadle and Jon Favreau also return for the third film in the franchise.

detailed photo of Iron Man's suit and possible stunt footage was also recently revealed. An infographic claims the lifestyle of the notoriously flashy libertine would cost over $1 billion -- weapons included, of course.
