Some intriguing photos have hit the internet from the set of “Iron Man 3,” revealing a possible new villain or a villain hybrid. The pictures above and below (via Coming Soon) reveal James Badge Dale dressed in what looks like the costume for the Iron Patriot.
However, Dale plays Eric Savin in the film, who in the comic books goes on to become villain Coldblood. So perhaps the Iron Patriot and Coldblood have been merged into one villain? Or maybe the Savin casting information was to throw everyone off the scent?
This Iron Patriot/Coldblood character will work alongside already-announced villains the Mandarin (Ben Kingsley) and genetic scientist Aldrich Killian (Guy Pearce). “Iron Man 3” is slated for a 2013 release and should be flying high off the enormous success of “The Avengers” at the box office.
The “Iron Man” movies, starring Robert Downey Jr., have always been our favorite of the “Avengers” universe offerings. Are you getting excited, fans?
