First Shots Of Iron Patriot In “Iron Man 3”
Images of the upcoming Iron Man 3 surfaced online today, showing actor James Badge Dale as the Iron Patriot.
This seems a little strange considering that Dale’s character in the film, Eric Savin, was supposed to become the villian Coldblood-7. Instead, he’s in the armor of Iron Patriot, which during Marvel’s Dark Reign event was actually Spider-Man arch-nemisis Norman “The Green Goblin” Osborn.
It’s believed that Sony still owns the rights to Osborn, so does this mean Dale’s character changes from Iron Patriot to Coldblood-7? Rumors are floating around that Iron Patriot will turn evil and become Coldblood-7, and eventually team up with another villain named Firepower played by Ashley Hamilton. There’s also the belief that Guy Peace’s Aldrich Killian will be the center villain, with Ben Kingsley as the Mandarin serving as some type of overarching villain. Of course, this is all still rumor.
