The Iron Patriot will NOT be making an appearance in Iron Man 3

June 10th, 2012 by Marc Comments

So, Iron Patriot isn’t in Iron Man 3?

We reported a while back here that Iron Patriot was to make an appearance in Shane Black’s Iron Man 3. However it seems we were wrong.
Despite the patriotic paint work, it seems that the pic below is actually War Machine in a rather gaudy painted suit. Aintitcool are reporting that the new movie will see the US government getting their hands on the War Machine armour and deciding to make it a bit more ‘American’.
So, despite our worries that the story may be over-packed, it seems that it’s simply a return of a familiar character. How this fits into the overall story is anyone’s guess,but it would appear Don Cheadle will once again be trying on the armour…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
