'Iron Man 3' Iron Patriot Set Photos!

James Badge Dale will don this red, white, and blue suit of armor as Eric Savin in Shane Black's Marvel sequel.

On May 16th, it was revealed that actor James Badge Dale had joined the cast of Iron Man 3 as Eric Savin, aka Coldblood, a U.S. Army Colonel turned cyborg killing machine.

Now, new photos from director Shane Black's Wilmington, N.C. set have revealed that James Badge Dale will also be donning the Iron Patriot armor for this upcoming sequel.

By request, these photos have been removed.

In the comic books, it is Spider-Man's Norman Osborn who first dons the Iron Patriot armor manufactured by Stark Industries shortly after the death of Captain America. Norman Osborn is a character currently under the Sony Pictures roof, so here in this sequel, Coldblood will instead be wearing the iconic red, white, and blue suit from the Marvel universe.

Iron Man 3 was released May 3rd, 2013 and stars Robert Downey Jr., Gwyneth Paltrow, Don Cheadle, Guy Pearce, Rebecca Hall, Jon Favreau, Ben Kingsley, James Badge Dale. The film is directed by Shane Black.

    Latino Review, who first broke these photos, is now saying that it's not James Badge Dale in the suit, but actually just a stunt worker for Don Cheadle, and that this is not Iron Patriot, but a redesigned War Machine armor.

    That would make sense. Given the events of Iron Man 2 and the tension between Stark and Rhodes in having the government using his technology essentially against him, it seems logical that the US government would want to create a hero that appeals to the people, a "safe" version of Iron Man who answers to America rather than himself.

    umm... Iron Man 2 sucked to me. I want to see him fight a more "supernatural" villain this time around & not just an endless list of bad guys with armor of their own. How are they doing an Iron Patriot story without Norman Osborn anyway???

    @XxNickTheFilmCriticXx That post of mine was not an obvious post. Where did you get the idea that, that was an obvious post? If i say something obvious, then i would of mentioned that i was being sarcastic with what i said and you'll know then, if i was being obvious or sarcastic for that matter about what i said.

    @XxNickTheFilmCriticXx Meh, comes with territory. Anyways, I agree. having him die an epic death at the right time would be memorable. Hell, wound't be terrible to kill Peter parker either.

    @themoviefanatic -- But, that would be a cliche! It's going to be pretty damn hard to make a cliche memorable! Why did you clarify yet another obvious post, though? You clearly made your stance known, but you explained it in blatant detail. I'm not trying to be offensive, but do you always feel the need to spoon feed everyone?

    @bawnian-dexeus -- I really don't get it...

    @bawnian-dexeus I didn't say he wouldn't die, i said he doesn't have to die to make it memorable.

    @XxNickTheFilmCriticXx Good point. But, it doesn't have to be that he would die to make it memorable. It could be a happier ending that could make it memberable that he lives through.

    @themoviefanatic -- Because, if done the right way, it would be a truly profound moment -- making it memorable.

    @XxNickTheFilmCriticXx Why would you want Captain America to die in any future Captain America movies?

    Captain America dies in the comic books? Interesting..

    I hope they dwell on that, and take it into consideration when making any further Captain America movies.

    My thoughts are on par with @shuabert on this one. He probably won't start out as Coldblood.

    At any rate, I've always loved the Iron Patriot suit, so it's cool to see them using it in the movies.

    @Jacob-Fredrick Coldblood is not Iron Patriot. Most likely, Eric Savin will start out as Iron Patriot, and then turn villainous as Coldblood after being infected with Extremis. It's definitely a twist on the characters, but an interesting one. And one with precedent; Iron Man 2 showed they're not afraid to mix things up, when they had Ivan Vanko be a hybrid of Whiplash and Crimson Dynamo.

    @messenger amen brother... Black is not only a great screenwriter (lethal weapon, long kiss goodnight, the last boy scout, and no i didnt have to wikipedia shane black to find out what hes screenwritten) but also has proven to be a good director (if you have not seen kiss, kiss, bang, bang... stop reading and go rent... NOW!) I have faith in shane black... and hell, i was a little dissapointed in the trailer when stark flew into the stark expo in IM2... having no clue, it looked a bit cheesy, but when the film came out... there was a point to it, and served a purpose. I think messenger is right... and how many of you are now looking forward to the amazing spider man... after dissing on it for a year or so prior to the trailer, based on photos alone? thunk so.

    Either this is gonna work great into the plot for the film or they are seriously " jumping the shark " by including Iron Patriot in the film, guess we'll have to wait and see....

    but why would he need his suit to be" patriotic" if he's coldblood at least make it another color

    Hard to criticize Marvel at the moment because of all its success, but Iron Patriot is an odd step to take, especially without Osborn.

    The suit is alright, but hopefully they'll try to stay accurate to the comic. I wonder if the suit could play a bigger role than what we think.
