If Black doesn't take his ass or the cast to China, the whole "co-production" deal falls through, and you can kiss IM3's China audience, premieres, etc. goodbye.
Film Business Asia has a great write-up about it:
Marvel promised them *directly* that the cast and crew would shoot in China. Roughly half of the movie HAS to be shot there to be classified as an actual co-production, as Marvel promised.
If Black half-asses it by just shooting stock "plate" scenes there to paste into greenscreen backgrounds, as he indicated at SDCC, then this movie has just officially gone to hell in a handbasket.
Jesus Christ, Shane, get a ****ing clue.
