Iron Patriot is in Iron Man 3
Today is Thursday so I am looking at movies in various stages of production. Today I have a few spoilers about the movie Iron Man 3 which is currently shooting. Actor James Badge Dale will be playing the villain, Iron Patriot, which is an amalgam of Iron Man and Captain America. In the comics Iron Patriot is an alter ego of Norman Osborn who is also the Green Goblin in the Spider-Man series/franchise. In this move James Badge Dale will also be playing Eric Savin since SONY studios still holds the rights to the Green Goblin character. I doubt that Iron Patriot will be the main villain given that Academy Award winning actor Ben Kingsley has signed on to play the main villain.
I really enjoyed the first Iron Man movie immensely even though I was not a fan of the character while growing up and knew very little about him. Iron Man 2 is not really that bad it is just too busy with multiple plot lines and characters and in the end it is not as good as the first one. I am keeping my fingers crossed that they can capture the magic of the first one. Shane Black is the direct of this installment taking over from Jon Favreau who directed the previous two movies.
