UPDATE: The Iron Patriot is going to be in Iron Man 3(Set Photos Prove it!)

UPDATE:

The Superficial has gotten hold of an unofficial, but undeniable photo of someone in the Iron Patriot armor. Check it out below.  -Dane

Get ready to speculate guys, but according to SuperHeroHype we can expect to see the Iron Patriot armor is Iron Man 3.

Here’s some info on the Iron Patriot:

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.

There’s definitely some interesting implications here.  Could Marvel be building towards a post-Captain America Marvel movie universe?  Could this be a subtle piece in the road toward Civil WarSecret Invasion and Dark Reign?  I honestly have no idea.  It could just be that the director, Shane Black, thought it looked cool and that’s it.  But it’s fun to speculate.

The image of the Armor is first and foremost an insult to both Captain America and Iron Man, or at least that’s how it was percieved by Marvel fans durring Dark Reign, so the question is how will it be used and who will wear it?  Because it can’t be Norman Osborn (the Green Goblin) because he’s a Spider-Man villain and Sony currently has the rights to those characters.

So how will it be in the movie?  No one knows yet.  Who will be wearing it?  Who knows, but it defienetly is an interesting addition to the film and one worth speculating about.

    In a nutshell (for anybody that’s confused, there’s a lot of different reports everywhere and most people are a bit confused), James Badge Dale who is playing Eric Savin has been spotted in the Iron Patriot armour.

    I’m lost on the plot for Iron Man 3, honestly.
