Wait, Iron Patriot is in Iron Man 3?!


I can’t vouch for these photo’s and in all probability they’ll become very hard to find very soon but it appears that some lucky cameraman was in North Carolina in the right place at the right time Capturing photo’s of the Marvel Comics character the Iron Patriot:



I bet some of you don’t know who this guy is. The Iron Patriot, in comics, is in actuality Norman Osborn who was Peter Parker’s villain in the first Sam Raimi Spider-Man film.


During the events of the “Dark Reign“, Osborn created a new identity, the Iron Patriot (an amalgam of Captain America and Iron Man), to cement his standing as a hero. As the Iron Patriot, he utilized a version of Iron Man’s armor. The armor featured superhuman strength, enhanced durability via a pliable crystalline material with a molecular structure that can collimate into super-hard planes upon the application of an electrical field, flight, magnetic impact blasts, heat seeking missiles, miniaturized lasers, flamethrowers, and a communications system housed in his helmet which allowed him to interface with any U.S.-controlled satellite or computer network.


Spider-Man has no place in Disney’s current Marvel lineup and that’s because the characters’ film rights belong firmly with Sony and in likelihood they’re not gonna let Osborn in the film. So either that’s a Super Skrull or someone else not named Tony Stark is in the armor. Coldblood? Maybe.

  1. I think it would be cool if this was actually Capt America just with a Tony Stark makeover, bring him into the new milenium a bit , but the Buzz is this is the War Machine armor with a new makeover…maybe some inspiration from hanging out with Capt America… Personally I think they are stupid if they dont twist in some things from the Avengers film, considering it was a box office SMASH! The plot I would like to see happen is;  Iron Man/ War Machine cant handle their new enemy alone, and they need to call in some back up. So Tony calls a friend to help them out. Capt America is more then willing to help but Tony realizes that a weapon (or something) Mandarin is using will tear Capt American and his little shield to pieces( Yes, I know his shield is some heavy duty stuff) , SO… in true Stark fashion, he gets to work in building Capt America his own set of armor and the Iron Patriot is born… again this is simply what I think the plot should be, not what they are saying will happen. This would OWN at the box office. Maybe I should write scripts damnit!!-Chris TD 

  2. I personally hated Dark Reign, but the Iron Patriot was one of the cool parts. It is so in character for Norman Osborne to give a giant middle finger to Captain America and Iron Man. I have no idea how he will fit into the Marvel films, because if the older Spiderman movies are counted, Osborne is dead. If not, then how will they introduce him outside of Spiderman? Iron Man 2 was pretty lack luster in my opinion and this does not bode well for the third film being better.
