It could be a version of Detroit Steel.
themidnightking - 5/30/2012, 2:23 PM
I wonder how its going to play out on screen
dbapz - 5/30/2012, 2:23 PM
LOL the last pic is funny
Marvelfreek94 - 5/30/2012, 2:24 PM
@Dynamo I agree it HAS to be detroit steel! If this movie is taking Tony apart they need an answer for iron man like in the comic. DETROIT STEEL!!!!

shit hot,don't mind either detroit steel or iron patriot.
LMB10 - 5/30/2012, 2:28 PM
It'll be some July 4th thing and Tony will make the Patriot armour for it, or something. Then have Coldblood steal it.
DukeAcureds - 5/30/2012, 2:30 PM
Such eye candy. Can you believ Avengers is in theatres right now and we're seeing this lush Dark Avengers design from Iron Man 3?
dbapz - 5/30/2012, 2:31 PM
Here is hoping for a Captain America joke from Tony

"Spangly outfit"
Emanuel14 - 5/30/2012, 2:36 PM
what Captain America is doing there?
comicforawife - 5/30/2012, 2:36 PM
Fan trailers are gonna get that much easier to do

Something tells me this armor isn't going to be too important in the movie, for starters this isn't related to the Iron Patriot at all, obviously.

More likely this suit would be just for show (similar to the Hammer drones), also it looks like this armor was designed after the War Machine suit and not Ironman's, so perhaps this is just another armor of the government that the James Badge character is testing.

For a movie that doesn't come out til a whole year from now, these photos just ramped up the "can't wait" factor.
Themercwiththemouthsback - 5/30/2012, 2:38 PM
i think that iron patriot will work for the goverment and that he must protect them and get tony and shit ore something and later on he will help tony and rhodes in the final battle ore something.
Darantino - 5/30/2012, 2:38 PM
My guess: This is like the official "american Iron-Man weapon" The USA got the tech through Rhodey in IM2 so they built their own in order to defend the country and not depend on Stark anymore, even the name "Firepower" would fit for such a mocve. As we heard IM3 is about spionage and terror so maybe China (or 10Rings as an organization) will also built a new weapon or armor, maybe suited by Guy Pearce and lead by Kingsley.

And now, Stark is in between a coming War and has probably to fight both sides with the help of Extremis-Virus at the end. This would be my wild guess.

@IM53
Preach!! Loving the goodness!!
GiantNerd0720 - 5/30/2012, 2:41 PM
I love the helmet.
FriendlyNeighborhoodSpidey - 5/30/2012, 2:42 PM
OH MY GOSH!!!!!! See this is why marvel needs the rights to spidey. That could have been Norman Osborn if marvel had spidey's movie rights. It will be cool either way though. I was not expecting this.
MCUfan1 - 5/30/2012, 2:46 PM
Can some please post a Detroit steel and a firepower pic so i can see what they look like
MisterJay - 5/30/2012, 2:46 PM
thats war machine
95 - 5/30/2012, 2:46 PM
Just gets better for me. Had no idea we'd get IP this soon. We are a step closer to.... SUPERHERO REGISTRATION!!! Maybe the military confiscated Rhodey's suit... Therefore, no War Machine in this. And this proves that Marvel is fine (and has plenty) of characters to use for their films. X-Men, F4, Spider-Man are puny (incredibly puny) to what they're planning. Let Fox and Sony knock themselves out.
FrankieDedo - 5/30/2012, 2:48 PM
ok, just imagine this: Iron Man + War Machine + Iron Patriot vs Extremis Army + Mandarin + someone else with armor = Total epic awesome rainbow unicorn giant dinosaur laser atomic galactic WIN.
Period.
dahamma - 5/30/2012, 2:48 PM
Man this is so awesome!! I cant believe that their including iron Patriot armor!! MArvel is pulling out all the stops for this one
blvdnoise - 5/30/2012, 2:52 PM
Ok Marvel, You have our attention..
blvdnoise - 5/30/2012, 2:53 PM
I hope this goes well..
PeterDarker121 - 5/30/2012, 2:53 PM
This has got me hyped. For your consideration....the GREATEST panel of an Iron Man story in Marvel History....



...in my opinion...:)
TheAmazingSpidey63 - 5/30/2012, 2:53 PM
@53, Thanks, man. Digging the goodness. ;)

I don't know. After thinking it over, I'm starting to think that it maybe an incarnation of Detroit STeel. Or I may be wrong. Who knows? Just can't wait for this movie. :D

Detroit Steel?


Or Iron Patriot armor?
CharlesLord - 5/30/2012, 2:53 PM

JayTopStix - 5/30/2012, 2:54 PM
I love IM but this is just

AMERICAN BULLSHIT PROPAGANDA.
BooYah - 5/30/2012, 2:56 PM
Should be interesting to see how this plays out.
santoanderson - 5/30/2012, 2:56 PM
@JayTopSix

Iron Patriot is a villain, dumbass. Any propaganda depicted by the character would not be positive for the stars & stripes.
TheAmazingSpidey63 - 5/30/2012, 2:57 PM
Heheh, I might as well give out some goodness as well.



;)
comicforawife - 5/30/2012, 2:57 PM
Dark Avengers baby, should be Dafoe in that suit!!!
BlazinTexan - 5/30/2012, 2:58 PM
lol troll^^^
TheAmazingSpidey63 - 5/30/2012, 2:58 PM
@comicforawife - Man, that's a pretty sick gif you got there. :)
95 - 5/30/2012, 2:59 PM
@Daratino

I think you're right about that. So excited for this film.
JayTopStix - 5/30/2012, 3:01 PM
@santoanderson

LOL, no shit Sherlock but if you really think that is Norman Osborn then you sir are the dumbass. LOL, if this is not a parade then the movie will be ridunkulous.
thetrojan - 5/30/2012, 3:03 PM
here we go kids
this is ongoing and wont end until we are all up to date with everything and it will continue....no re-boots.

make mine marvel.
TheAmazingSpidey63 - 5/30/2012, 3:05 PM
There's three theories/possibities of what this armor can be:

1) That this armor really is the Iron Patriot armor which Tony created for unknown reasons. (Publicity, maybe? Just for his image? Who knows?)
2) This maybe a splice character of both Coldblood and Detroit Steel.
3) Maybe someone has confiscated the War Machine armor (as @3D mentioned), redisgned the design of the armor, added some new weaponry, and gave it to whoever that character is.

QUestions, questions, questions. :/
