Iron Patriot To Appear In Iron Man 3 After All?

Days before the news of Guardians Of The Galaxy film broke, we ran the story that Marvel had filed new trademarks for the property and speculated that may be for a movie…

Now Marvel have placed a rash of new trademark filings for the phrase IRON PATRIOT, such as this one.

We had seen earlier set photos that indicated that Iron Patriot would be a character in Iron Man 3.

In the comics he is Norman Osborn, taking the suit from Tony Stark and giving it a little patriotic twist in the manner of Captain America.

Then Latino Review reported that it was just a whizzed up War Machine, Don Cheadle’s character in the suit. Which of course it may well be. But maybe the US government prefer a less aggressive title for their man-in-a-tin-can?

Marvel never goes on a trademark binge without reason. One way or another, will Iron Patriot be making a film-based appearance in some fashion, to justify the trademarking of everything?

Probably.
