We recently told you that we would definitely be seeing the Iron Patriot armor in Iron Man 3. For those of you who want more of a confirmation… seeing is believing.
If you don't want to see what the suit looks like, then please don't look at the images below because they are photos from the set of the film showing us what this Patriot Armor is going to look like.
You may or may not be impressed with the look of the suit but remember these are just set photos and there's a lot more work that goes into making it look cool in post production. I think it looks cool, and I have no doubt it will look awesome in the movie.
As for who will be wearing the suit, the photos show James Badge Dale. Dale is playing Eric Savin, who's a Lieutenant Colonel in the U.S. Army who in the comic ends up stepping on a land mine and becoming a cyborg called Coldblood. They'll obviously be changing things up a bit for the Marvel movie universe.
So what do you think of the suit!?
Here's a little more history behind the suit:
Norman Osborn wears a full battlesuit patterned after the heroic images of Captain America and Iron Man. The battlesuit was cobbled together from StarkTech that had been confiscated from Tony Stark's armory at Avengers Tower shortly after H.A.M.M.E.R.'s formation. However, Osborn lacked the technical expertise on how to operate the armor's repulsor generators efficiently (replacing it with the not as powerful Uni-Beam projector star-shaped output), making it less powerful than Stark's Iron Man armors. It was hacked into and shut down for good by Iron Man at the end of the Seige of Asgard due to the armor based off an older design and has been not in use since.
During the Red Skull's invasion of America the armor was vaporized by Skadi.
