With the outrageous success of "The Avengers" earlier this month, one would imagine the movie studios will be hastening to get other films within the comic realm done to cash in on the phenomenon; "Iron Man 3" is no exception. It began production last week, and at least one new photo has been leaked of the film's central villain, Coldblood.
The character, a cybernetically-altered ex-colonel named Eric Savin, is played by James Badge Dale, who is known as Leckie from "The Pacific" and Will from "Rubicon". The addition of this particular villain has sparked rumors that the film will include a Spiderman tie-in, because Iron Patriot was also the name of a Spidey foe, but that's unlikely. At any rate, it will be nice to see a bad guy who isn't a corporate meanie trying to defeat Iron Man and take over the world.
Jon Favreau is back in this installment, as is Gwyneth Paltrow. The movie is expected in May of next year.
