Major Spoilers for Iron Man 3, If You Can Make Sense of Them

Major Spoilers for Iron Man 3, If You Can Make Sense of Them

There are some major spoilers here for Iron Man 3, but they're so confusing it may not matter!



So today, someone snapped the picture below during Iron Man 3 filming, showing what appears the be the Iron Patriot, which means, probably, that the Iron Patriot will be in Iron Man 3. The Iron Patriot, of course, was Norman Osborn during the Marvel quasi-event Dark Reign, wearing a suit of Iron Man armor. Norman Osborn is also the Green Goblin, a major Spider-Man villain. Sony owns the movie rights to the Spider-Man franchise, of which Norman Osborn is a part, and so Norman Osborn cannot appear in Iron Man 3, which is made by Disney.

You with us so far? Okay...

Some sources are saying that the person in the armor is actor James Badge Dale. Dale is allegedly playing a character named Eric Savin. Eric Savin, in the Marvel Universe, is the alter ego of Coldblood-7, a character that this reporter has never heard of, despite being a huge nerd. The Iron Patriot in the Marvel Universe is a villain masquerading as a hero and using the fear of the public to justify his actions in the name of patriotism. It worked because Norman was the hero of a prior Marvel comics event, Secret Invasion, wherein multiple Marvel characters were revealed to have been replaced by Skrulls, a shapeshifting race of aliens, but though the public knew Norman as a hero, we readers knew he was the villain Green Goblin. Nobody has ever heard of fucking Coldblood-7, so there is no history to create any of these nuances. Ergo, we can assume that the Iron Patriot will be similar to current Iron Man character War Machine, a friend of Tony Stark who pilots Iron Man armor for the U.S. Government, except, we guess, bad. Or not.

So there you have it. This reporter is confident that the above made so little sense, you will actually be more surprised by whatever happens when Iron Man 3 hits theaters on May 3, 2013.
