Extras needed in Wilmington, NC for several upcoming projects, including ‘Iron Man 3’

A new casting company in Wilmington, NC is looking for men, women, and kids interested in appearing as extras in upcoming movies and TV shows.

Though Premier Casting doesn’t come right out and say it, based on their Facebook page it looks like they are bulking up their database of extras for Iron Man 3, which will begin filming in Wilmington next year.

One of their recent Facebook posts reads, “Received an email this morning. Iron Man 3 will use about 1,000 extras during the film and there will be over 550 crew jobs and will be shooting from May 2012 until January 2013 with a Memorial Day weekend release in 2013.”

They are looking for ALL ages, ALL Shapes and Sizes, ALL Ethnicities, Kids, Adults, Males and Females. If you would like to register as an extra in the Wilmington area, visit https://www.premiercasting.us/.


  1. This seems misleading as the production company has not hired any agencies–even the head of Premiere has stated that they have not been hired by IM3. Just good timing to put out a general call to help fill their database following news that a large film is coming to their area. Wish OnLocations would better clarify because I have seen several stories that use them as a source that specifically say Premiere is casting for IM3 and that is just not so!

  2. We clearly state that they do not say they are handling extras for the production, but they certainly do imply they will be handling extras for the project on their Facebook page and no one seems to be denying it…also the local media in Wilmington did come right out and say the casting calls were for a “superhero” size production.

  3. […] Not too many to go on here, yet a film will reportedly need over 1,000 people from a Wilmington, North Carolina area — where a film is filming from May 2012 to Jan 2013 — to be extras in a film. They’re now looking for “ALL ages, ALL Shapes and Sizes, ALL Ethnicities, Kids, Adults, Males and Females”, yet hopefully some-more specific requests will seem shortly enough.

  6. Premiere is using Iron Man 3 to mislead people into coming to them to PAY FOR PICTURES to be in their database…. some people have been told they had to COME BACK to take NEW pictures that they have to PAY FOR. They tell everyone that they are casting for Iron Man 3 when they AREN’T!! They are a brand new casting company, they definiately won’t get a big production like this…. they are a SCAM and should be ashamed of themselves.

  7. i would like to be a extra. I live in marion so it would be a great chance for me to get out of the small town and meet other people! Contact me at (828)803-7198 after school.


  8. I was just in Premier Casting and never once was I misled, nor did I get the feeling that they are a scam. I asked about Iron Man and they said that like all everyone in this industry they are excited and hope to be the extras casting company hired for the job. Now for paying $2.00 I was told that I could “update my file” as often as I need to at no additional cost. Call me crazy but I don’t think $2.00 is a lot to pay for an “opportunity” at something. People need to read, ask questions and not jump to conclusions it’s just that simple.

  9. im from asheville nc. if i come and i apply for ironman3 will there be cost other then the 2.00 dollars? because i did a audition in charlotte for john casablancas modeling and career center. they sai it was free. but when they accepted me the wanted 2.000 dollars for a 20 week training class

    • Hi Wade,

      I just want to inform you that Premier Casting is not handling extras for Iron Man 3. As far as the $2.00 fee goes, it is merely a filing fee, that is all. Extras Casting (as a whole) does not operate as such modeling schools or agencies do. If you have any questions please, feel free to visit the Premier Casting office Monday through Friday from 10am-6pm at 4605-4 Franklin Avenue in Wilmington, NC 28403. Online at http://www.premiercasting.us or by phone at 910-523-5622. I hope this helps clear up any misconceptions. Thank you for your understanding and we look forward to hearing from you soon.
