Variety is reporting that actor Ashley Hamilton is in talks with Marvel studios to appears as one of the villains in the upcoming Iron Man 3 movie.
If negotiations are successful, Hamilton could very likely play government cyborg, Firepower.
In the Marvel comicbooks, the character is the pilot of an experimental armored suit under the secret mission dubbed Project: Firepower. He eventually uses the suit to battle Iron Man.
Firepower first appeared in Iron Man #230 (1988), but I have not read anything with the character in it, so I don’t know if the villain will be a good match for Tony Stark or not.
Though Jon Favreu won’t be directing the movie, he did tweet that he would be returning to his role as Happy Hogan.
Production of Iron Man 3 is scheduled to begin this month, with Iron Man 3 scheduled to arrive in theaters on May 03, 2013.
