Iron Man 3 Confirmed to Include Iron Patriot!
SuperHeroHype has confirmed that Shane Black's Iron Man 3 will feature the red, white and blue Iron Patriot armor. What is uncertain, however, is exactly who will be wearing it.
The armor made its first appearance in 2009's "Dark Avengers" #1.
Following the events of the "Secret Invasion" crossover, Norman Osborn
was mistakenly heralded as an American hero and tasked with leading a
group of government-sanctioned Avengers. Taking the technology from
Stark Industries, Osborn designed his suit to represent the
then-recently-deceased Captain America.
Because the character of Osborn is a Spider-Man villain and the
rights rest at Sony Pictures, it's pretty much a certainty that a
different character will be donning the suit in the upcoming film.
Now in production in North Carolina, Iron Man 3 stars
Robert Downey Jr., Gwyneth Paltrow, Don Cheadle, Ben Kingsley, Guy
Pearce, James Badge Dale, Ashley Hamilton and Jon Favreau. The film is
scheduled to hit theaters on May 3, 2013.
