Robert Downey Jr. has thankfully recovered from his ankle injury and has returned to finishing filming on the Miami, Florida set of “Iron Man 3″.

The Daily Mail was on-hand and snapped a few photos that will make nerds have a joy boner, as the Iron Patriot and Mark XLVII armors are captured for the world to see. Filming resumed on Monday in Florida where prop makers built a phony beach-side restaurant called “Neptune’s Net,” named after a well known fish fry bar in Malibu popular with bikers where the Iron Man films are set.

Despite several rain delays, Downey Jr. looked excellent in his element as the ebullient star of Marvel’s most impacting franchise. Interestingly enough, the man who plays Tony Stark, an avid fan of martial arts, has been filming many of his own action scenes for the film rather than relying on a double.

Directed and written by Shane Black, Iron Man 3 stars the aforementioned Robert Downey Jr. alongside Gwyneth Paltrow, Don Cheadle, Jon Favreau, Ben Kingsley, Guy Pearce, James Badge Dale, Ashley Hamilton and Rebecca Hall. The project will explode into theaters on May 3, 2013.
