You're probably right. The onset photos of the armor in question are obviously fake too. I bet you can tell from some of the pixels and...ah fark it.

I think that a scene introducing this armor could be AWESOME. They could make it a big show, basically like Apollo Creed in Rocky IV. Really garish, really AMERICAN

So, Extremis without Maya Hansen, but with Mandarin + Iron Patriot? So much for subtlety and introspection.

Which usually is a bit emo in superhero movies, but Downey could pull that off, a slight return to bits of the first movie.

LOLOL, I remember reading one of the issues that had Osborn's Iron Patriot armor. When he came out in that, my reaction was pretty similar to everyone's.

The original Iron Patriot was intended to be a symbolic fusion of Iron Man and Captain America. I don't remember why Norman Osbourne didn't want a full Cap replacement for the Dark Avengers.

2. powered armor is just cool and
3. SPLOSIONS!

True dat, one of the more overloked lines in Avengers (because it was during a tense scene) is when Tony and Cap were arguing and Cap says "take away the suit and what are you?" and Tony replies "Billionaire Playboy Genius"

Unfortunately that is a shoop. The paint job is different than the one in the spy pics, but the shoop looks better than the spy pics and more like the comics.

Its just the MK III armor

eh, its gonna look better when its actually all CGIed up. RDJ doesn't look that great walking around back stage with the iron man armor props on.


That said, it wasn't supposed to look great. It was supposed to be a replacement for Iron Man and Captain America that could do evil while wrapped in the Red, White and Blue.

Wasn't the Iron Patriot suit just a stolen Iron Man armor painted in patriotic colors?.

/The fact that it was stolen is because Osbourne couldn't recreate an armor of his own

Yep, You are dead on.

He inherited (legally somehow) all of Starks armor when he took over SHIELD, and turned it into "Hammer" (subtle Norman). He went with the patriot color scheme so he could fill the symbolic roles of both the patriot and the knight in his new Avengers team himself.

Yeah, and in his arrogance to make himself the Iron Patriot, he weakened the power of the repulsor array in the chestplate by turning it from the regular shape into a five-point star.

Boo for Norman is stuck at Sony. There is precedence though:

If:
Iron Man 2 - Whiplash + Crimson Dynamo = Ivan Vanko
then:
Iron Man 3 - Iron Patriot + Coldblood = Eric Savin

I honestly don't think that Sony will forever hold the Spidey characters. Disney knows there's money in the banana stand. They're sitting back and hoping that "Amazing" tanks (it won't) before they go to Sony with an offer for the rights, most likely.

Nice to see some info and a video. I was a bit meh about Iron Man 2, but after Avengers, and this info I'm getting psyched up for Iron Man 3. I'm hoping the info is true cause Gandhi as Mandarin just seems like awesome (and amusing) casting.

If Mandarin just plays a back burner role in this, I'm wondering if he'll be showing up in Avengers 2. I'm getting an inkling that a villain could be pulled from each of the new marvel movies to come back under Thanos. There were small pieces that tied the first set of films into Avengers 1, but now that it is a juggernaut they could bring in more stuff, especially with all of the origin stories taken care of and Avengers in-fighting already covered.

That said, the Iron Patriot is horribly tacky and suits its purpose really well. "America Fark Yeah!" Appeal to over the top patriotism while dicking the people over hehe.


/damn that hulkbuster armor looks sweet.

And by "overlooked" you mean "in two of the trailers, so even people that didn't see the movie have heard it"?

Neums: I honestly don't think that Sony will forever hold the Spidey characters. Disney knows there's money in the banana stand. They're sitting back and hoping that "Amazing" tanks (it won't) before they go to Sony with an offer for the rights, most likely.


It could very well tank. Even people that actually read the comic couldn't be paid to give a fark about the "Peter Parker's parents are totally, like, spies, y'all" storyline. Add in that the trailers are kinda reminiscent of a certain Emo dancing scene from spiderman 3 and I know I'm not going to see it, and I'm kinda the target audience (genre film viewer, male, late 20s-early 30s).

But yeah, I agree with what you're saying, I just have a higher opinion of Disney's plan here. They can even push it along by releasing something that's more or less guaranteed on the same weekend to make sure.

Yeah, the one from the movie looks more in line with this version of the armor. IIRC, this was from the Civil War Fallen Son What If? Where Tony died to end the Superhero Civil War and in this timeline, Steve donned the armor, but I can't recall if he called himself the Iron Patriot or not. I think he was still just Captain America.
