Set pictures have revealed the inclusion of Iron Patriot in the next Iron Man movie. I wasn’t expecting this.
Not least because the character, in the comics at least, is an alias of Norman Osborn, sometime Green Goblin and, as far as the big screen goes, under lock and key at Sony.
So there’s obviously been some jiggery pokery going on.
If you read on, you’ll find out who will be wearing the red, white and blue suit in the Marvel movieverse.
Okay, here are two pictures of Mr. Patriot on set – both with and without his visor closed. This is where you’ll find out just how they’ve reinvented the character.
That’s James Badge Dale, cast as Eric Savin. I had assumed he’d have the alter ego of Coldblood 7, as per the comics, but apparently not.
Well, not unless Coldblood 7 has gone all Uncle Sam of late.
Thanks to The Superficial for the snaps, and to the handful of little Bleeders who sent them across.
