The Iron Patriot to Take the Stage in Iron Man 3

by Baron W.May 30, 2012

Salute to the Red, White, and Blue! It’s been confirmed that the other man of steel will be donning the patriotic suit created by Norman Osborne (yes, from Spider-man), though (obviously) neither Osborne nor Spider-man will be making an appearance in the movie. Pictures from the set of Iron Man 3, which is currently being shot in North Carolina, have been dispersed all across the web, check them out after the break.

Iron Man is famous for having multiple suits from the comic book series. And it came to no surprise to me that one of those famous costumes of his would make it to the big screen. Someone managed to leak an image from the upcoming Iron Man 3 movie set with James Badge Dale wearing the Iron Patriot Armor that Iron Man wears to show his patriotism.

The armor’s first appearance was in “Dark Avengers” #1 where Osborne used Stark’s tech to create it in honor of the then-deceased Captain America. The plot thickens when Osborne is put in charge of the Avengers and is mistakenly heralded as a hero. Kinda makes you wish we lived in an alternate universe where Marvel owned the film rights to ALL of their characters eh?

    Doc Ock like Peter Parker is a science whiz although unlike Peter he didn’t have two caring parents which made it easier for him to go down a life of crime.
    Venom (Eddie Brock) A twisted version of Spider Man, and Eddie Brock is the complete opposite of Peter Parker.

      doc oc, wasn’t so much as evil in his movie adaptation more like; so crazy in doing good his green peace arms would rather damn humanity in a fiery hell of the sun so that humanity can benefit from the incredible scientific good he was trying to accomplish.

    I could not find out by looking around online and am interested, if they are in it, as to who will play them

      The original Iron Patriot in the Ultimate’s Universe is Norman Osborn. The same Norman Osborne who perfected a super soldier serum down to the letter like the Cap’s recipe, in it that it has psychological repercussions; if the user isn’t impeccably good like Steve, would go completely evil, or in his case bat-shit-banana-sandwich-crazy. Also used experimental weapons technology and tried to kill Peter Parker and is now in prison, eventually gets out, X-men and the mutant menace are on the rise, commissions the creation of a patriotic suit with Hammer-tech, supports the universal registration and tracking of all mutant citizens, becomes a congressman while still fighting ‘evil’ in his suit (although he’s evil), Civil War, bad shit goes down, and is currently a member of the Anti-Avengers; while in the Anti-Avengers is a part of the evil counsel of 6 Evil Avengers making them the reverse Illuminati Avengers like their good counterparts within the Ultimate Universe.

    If Green Goblin/Norman Osborne was caught and arrested, what can they charge him with? I don’t believe he can go to prison for kidnapping his own son and robbing his own company since he is the head honcho of Oscorp and father of Harry. I seriously doubt Harry would press charges for the kidnapping anyway.

    Let’s say a person thinks Clark Kent is boring, but thinks Superman is awsome, even though they’re the same person. Would this be shallow of a person to think this way?

    Also, do people still like Norman Osborne since he hasn’t wore the Green Goblin costume in a while. Or do people only like Norman because he is the Green Goblin. Me, I’m still waiting for him to snap and become the Goblin again lol.
    I guess what I’m asking is do people even care about the character’s civilian alter ego?

  • morbiusdog

    When I saw “SPIDERMAN 2”, I thought “Doc Oc AKA Otto Octavious” was much scarrier than “The Green Goblin AKA Norman Osborne”, because of how big he was, and how menacing his four long arms were. There are two other spiderman villains like “The Sandman AKA Flint Marko”, and “Venom AKA Eddie Brock, Jr.”. Which of the four villains from the SPIDERMAN trilogy would you consider the most frightening of all? When you make your choice, give it some detail explaining in brief thought why you think this villain is the scarriest among superhero villains.

    Given that the strength of the economy is such an important factor to most of the electorate, why have our leaders so consistently chosen people outside their specialism?

    Going back over the Chancellors we’ve had:

    Gideon Osborne – historian
    Alistair Darling – lawyer
    Gordon Brown – historian
    Kenneth Clarke – lawyer
    Norman Lamont – ECONOMIST – left his position in 1993
    ETA: My fault – I didn’t make myself clear. I make no comment as to which chancellors were better than others. I’m also aware that they will have teams behind them that will do a lot of the legwork.

    However, surely (poor examples aside) if you are to be the front-man for these decisions, then you should at least have a good understanding of the policies you enact.

    Poor wording on my part – sorry.

    Is it a good idea to make the character(in civilian form) interesting like his costume alter ego? For example, some spider-man writers did a good job making Norman Osborne evil and sadistic without his green goblin alter ego. He’s cool without the costume.

    Do people find Quentin Beck boring without his Mysterio persona or Maxwell Dillion dull without his Electro costume and powers?

    I create stories on my spare time. I don’t want viewers to hate my villain’s civilian alter ego, but love his costume persona. I don’t think that’s a good sign to me. Imagine a girl falling in love with Batman, but dumps him later because he gave up being Batman and spends the rest of his life as Bruce Wayne. Yeah….something like that.

    made up example:
    Let’s say some fans and fan girls get annoyed seeing Bruce out of costume for 10 issues. They suddenly stop reading Batman stories. What I’m saying is, should I make a character in civilian form interesting as his costume self?

    [WARNING SPOILERS!!! THIS QUESTION IS A DISCUSSION FOR PEOPLE WHO’VE SEEN THE FILM ALREADY. PROCEED NO FURTHER UNLESS YOU DON’T CARE ABOUT SPOILERS.]

    I went and saw the midnight release in 3D last night. The movie was absolutely phenomenal!!! Honestly 100x better then Sam Raimi’s whole trilogy. Mark Webb hit The Amazing Spider-Man out of the ballpark. The movie had a compelling storyline. You actually got to know more about the characters. They weren’t rushed like in Sam Raimi’s trilogy. The Lizard looked incredible. Gwen Stacy was spot on. Mark Webb’s version of the character was accurate to the comics. Sam Raimi’s was an insult. He made her look like a dumb blonde. Webb actually made her character the way she is really, intelligent, rebellious, and adventurous. Stan Lee’s cameo as the librarian during Spider-Man and The Lizard’s fight in the high school was hilarious. I was happy that Spidey had his web shooters instead of the organic crap Sam Raimi gave him in his movies. The web shooters were in the comics. Honestly I think that’s the best thing I can say about the movie. It stuck very close to the source material. It didn’t stray too far like Raimi’s films did. It had the same premise as the The Lizard’s first comic appearance. Save for its in New York and Connors lived in the Flordia Everglades. But the plot was spot on.

    Who do you think was the person in the shadows of Connors’s cell during the after credits scene? My gut tells me that it is Norman Osborne. But having played and beaten the new Spider-Man game that just released with the film. It could be Alistaire Smythe as well. But it’s probably Osborne. Which leads me to believe that the sequel with incorporate the plots of The Night Gwen Stacy Died and The Green Goblin’s Last Stand. For those that need to brush up, that the two part story arc from Amazing Spider-Man #121 & 122. In The Night Gwen Stacy Died, the Green Goblin throws Geen Stacy off of the George Washington Bridge. Spider-Man goes to save her and catches her by her foot with his web, but the sudden stop causes her neck to snap killing her. In the following issue Spider-Man beats te Green Goblin to an inch of his life but decides to let him live. The Green Goblin then uses his glider to try and kill Spider-Man but Spider-Man’s Spidey Sense warns him and he jumps out of the way and the glider impales Osborne seemingly killing him. Yes this is the same ending as the first Spider-Man movie. Showing that Sam Raimi just grabbed things from random issues and throwed them in a blender.

    Having played and beaten the new game. I think Mark Webb might also be planning on giving us something I’ve longed to see in a Spider-Man movie since I was a kid watching the 90’s cartoon… Man-Spider! Upon completing the game, you unlock a new costume, the Cross-Species Spider-Man suite. It shows Peter Parker’s transformation into Man-Spider. However the design looks looked he’s only half transformed if you compare the suite to Man-Spider’s image.

    I’m stoked and can’t wait for the sequel!!! I might go see the movie again today!!!

    When dr. conners was inside his cell during the credits scene and he speaks to a man in shadows, Who was the person? I either think it is Norman Osborne, because of how they mentioned the character through the movie in certain points, or the embodiment of the lizard in conners mind, because at one moment the mystery man touches the same arm that conners is once again missing and as the lightening strikes the man has suddenly dissappeared, Thoughts?

  • MentallyCryppled

    He created Spider-Man, X-Men, Fantastic Four, and a bunch of other comic series for Marvel. How did he manage to juggle more than one series at once when he started out working for Marvel in the ’60s? I want to have more than one series under my belt-please help me out. Thank you.

    below is a letter I sent to Marvel about ultimate spider man just wanna know if anyone agrees

    dear Ultimate office

    Congrats on ruining another comic! You have killed the most popular Ultimates character.
    Then you re-write him in what has to be the biggest slap in the face to the African American community Your creative team could muster.
    You must be so proud to set yourselves apart in such a way.

    Now I will state right here I am not against African American heroes.
    I think Blade, Rage, Falcon, Black, Panther, Storm, Luke Cage, and my favorite Night Thrasher
    are great characters with there own stories and origins.
    What you’ve done here with Spider man is a crock of s***.

    The reason I say this is coloring Peter brown and giving him a different name does not make him a new hero.

    * you have this new hero bitten by a genetically altered spider just like Peter
    * The spider came from a Norman Osborne lab just like Peter
    * It gets out due to someones neglegence just like Peter
    * He comes from a low income/poor family just like Peter

    I figure by issue 10, you will have him dating M.J.

    Now you have stereotyped this character to the point of insult in the first issue. I am shocked you were even allowed to print it! Lets see f it doesn’t sound like a stereotype when you read this letter to yourself :
    A poor (black) kid from Brooklyn who has a direct relative who is a thief. Poor/low income family that can only get a good education through a program . So basically your saying to kids reading this
    ” Now kids, we cant make a African American hero unless we piggy back him on a well known and established super hero”

    Nothing against this character but you really should of given him his own name costume and origin. Instead you have piggybacked the most noble and liked character in the Ultimate Universe.
    You have insulted the character and the fans. it actually felt like I was being robbed having to pay for this first issue which was the chance I gave it to prove me wrong sadly it didn’t

    I hope and expect you’ll see more letters like this from fans disappointed and ashamed of this comic. as for me I threw it out it was so much cr@p and have canceled my Ultimate Spider man subscription

    Signed,
    A lost Fan

    p.s I am sure if a white kid wanted to be the next black panther you guys would all have a laugh and say no way so think about it from that prospective

  • Cpt Excelsior

    What are the best overall comic book series or more than one series out for DC and Marvel Comics right now?

  • tjpimpin

    I’m looking to publish a 10-issue comic book series. Each issue would be roughly 30-pages and a cover. Does anyone know how much it would cost to print 100-150 copies of each issue? Or is there a simple website (for a publishing company) that explains each step?

  • jordenkotor

    I am new to comic books and just purchased the entire battle for the cowl series only to find that Bruce Wayne is dead. I would like to get the series in which he died so i can fill some gaps.

  • tefa_96

    My step-dad has the original comic book series of X-Men, good condition, just out of the packaging. He has the entire set and I’m a little curious as is he to what the price would be. It’s in the basic condition of any other magazine, Im just not sure if the Comic book crazed people would except that or not.

  • Xedo

    I have recently gotten into comic books and I want to know which DC series to start with. I want to read most of the members of the justice league of America (ex. Batman, superman, Wonder woman etc). I feel like i’m too behind in the stories to catch up, so what would be the best series to start with? Also I want to read marvel’s Ironman.

  • zaclo

    I think this happened before secret invasion but after civil war but I’m not sure.

  • ouch

    Keep in mind some comic books have several cartoon series (like Spiderman) so it’s best to be specific or use dates?

  • ouch

    Pretty self-explanatory…

    I am looking to (try to) get permission from a comic book series to make a movie from it. The company is DC. The series ended awhile ago. It wasn’t huge, but it had a large fan base.

    Please and thank you,

    There is alot of opinion out there I just wanted to see in the Batman Comic books what issue ended the Golden Age? I believe it is either Batman #96 or #129. And then what are the issues that span the Silver Age for the Batman Comic books series. Thanks for your help.

  • Malcolm Hudson

    They must be Super Villains that started in Comic Books not movies, video games, tv shows, or anywhere else outside of comic books.
    Please give reasons defending your answers.
    Here are my top 10 best super villains. Please give feedback on my choices.

    1.Red Skull He’s far from a ghastly ordinary Nazi. The guy cares for no one but himself. He represents just about all of the dismal things with humanity from genocide, narrowmindess, nihilism, mass murder, Fascism, to name some. Even the mind raping savage Faustos, Joker, Dr.Doom, and Magneto are so offended by the abject vileness that they refused to work with him. He even claims he’s not a Nazi but in fact smarter than them or something along that line or arrogance which in fact makes him more abject and arrogant than Nazis.
    2.Green Goblin (Norman Osborne) He’s the deplorable trash demon that keeps rising. The same individual that ended the Silver Age killing Gwen Stacy the girlfriend of Spider Man at the time. A grand example of it’s hard to keep a good man down but a bad man is even harder that is Norman. He’s tormented and strongly antagonized Spider Man for years enjoying it as well as other super heroes, and at the moment controls a strong portion of the US in the Marvel Universe. Also Norman rarely shows humility for anyone so even when he’s not the Green Goblin he’s antagonizing people. He’s really stepped up his game, and is trying to mislead the Public that many well known super heroes have gone evil with his dark avengers disguised as them including Venom (Mac Gargon) as Spider Man. He’s a vile abject demon that continues to equal what he previously did, or he outdoes himself.
    3.Darkseid He’s manage to operate in the Shadows, and is a Huge Force of Evil in the DC Universe. He’s a Lord of Nefarious Evil, and has no problem doing whatever it takes to accomplish his nefarious deplorable goals. Superman is the symbol of top goodness and grand virtue, and Darkseid is the symbol of top evilness and vileness being the same on the Side of Evil. He’s proven to be a top Super Villain in the DC Universe battling just about all of DC’s finest. He even inspired two other Abject Alien Super Villains Mongul, and Thanos.
    4.Magneto He started off slow but soon became a huge super villain. One of the most complex super villains, as well as most interesting with a large amount of depth. He made Wolverine a pansy ripping out his adamintum, and is more than a Match for the X-Men. Such a superb contrast between him, and his complete opposite Profesor X. A huge threat in the Marvel Universe who could be right.
    5.Dr.Doom He’s proven to be a Huge threat in the Marvel Universe fighting Spider Man, Iron Man, and plenty of other prominent characters in the Marvel Universe. He’s a grand example of a Man with a brillant mind but no humbleness at all. Beyond a doubt deplorable devil believing no one to be his equal, nor can he do anything wrong in his Mind. A large case of brillance being used for Evil, and he possibly inspired the badass Darth Vader. You just love to hate him.
    6.Joker He gives clowns a large bad name believing your pain to be his amusement, and comedy. For years he’s tormented Batman killing Robin (Jason Todd), crippling Babs and tormenting his dad to drive him insane. He’s a deplorable abject trash lowlife rotten brutal ghastly atrocious infernal demon that lives to push Batman over the edge, torment him along with others so they will join him. No person has given Gotham City more hell than him, and he’s commited just about every crime in the Book. He’s aware he’s abject trash, loves it, and there is not much he won’t do.
    7.Anti Monitor He makes both Galactus, and Imperiex look like pansys as he’s way more powerful than both him, and no one owns a bigger bodycount in the DCUniverse than him. That alone is enough. Without a doubt a Infernal Barbarian that is without mercy.
    8.Lex Luther He started off bad and slow seeming like just another typical mad scientist however he would prove to be a huge force of Evil. As a Criminal Mastermind he’s shown to be a formidable adversary for the Man of Steel despite having no superhuman strength mainly using his brillant evil mind. He’s a top super villain that has fought many top super heroes in the DC Universe including Bats, and remains a top force of evil.
    9.Loki The Lord of Trickery. He could torment you easily, and he wouldn’t even have to assault you. Loki is fully aware of what he is, and he enjoys being a plague after years of being mistrusted, and his brother having what he wants. Nothing he won’t do to take Thor’s posotion.
    10.Sinestro He’s grown to became a huge super villain in the DC Universe. He’s been called a cosmic Hitler which I could see given his mustache, hair, and large ego believing his methods, goal to be right along with he’s a hero classic kind of villain. His name is that of treachery as even be he proved to be sinister dictating his own planet of people, and commiting genocide d
    Sinestro continued

    to Green Lantern (Kilowog) planet cleary showing he has no pity on the level of Joseph Stalin, Adolph hitler, and other barbaric genocidal egomaniacs.

  • Mak Sultan

    Two questions I am asking. Between these two insane super villains who would win in a physical fight with both getting their regular equipment, and weapons? Joker can’t use innocent people to gain a advantage because Green Goblin much like the Joker is a savage murduring super villain.

    The other question is who is the better super villain Green Goblin (Norman Osborne) or the Joker? Please defend your answers.

  • Christopher J

    Nearly 4,000 jobs were under threat today after the owner of shoe shops Barratts and Priceless Shoes collapsed into administration.

    The next couple of months are also critical for embattled retailers HMV, JJB Sports, and Game Group, who are all struggling in the wake of tumbling consumer confidence.
    The past two years has seen a string of retail failures including TJ Hughes, Jane Norman, Alexon, Habitat UK and Focus DIY and Discover leisure.

    Meanwhile today, supermarket giant Tesco has reported an entire year of declining sales despite its £500million price-cutting campaign.

    So when are the private sector going to create these new jobs?
