Iron Man 3 is still in production, and there has been a general lack of cool behind the scenes images to surface around the Intardwebz.  But pictures do exist, and today we get to see the Extremis armor and the Iron Patriot side by side.

What is really cool is how big the costumes are compared to the average grip running around the set.

Iron Man 3 is scheduled to open on May 03, 2013.

  1. So Iron Patriot would necessarily mean Norman Osborn? Maybe the next big thing for the Avengers is not Thanos but the Dark Avengers? I know it’s not but it definitely would be cool!

    • Dark avenger would be cool as a second movie, peppered with threats of Thanos throughout leading to that story in the third. But I doubt that would happen. I’m sure this Iron Man story will be pretty independent of the avengers. However I would put my money on The Mandarin being behind that suit instead of Osborn.

  2. I think these where taken down in Ft. Lauderdale, FL. Just 30min from my house. Wish I could get down there to watch. Dame you RWJ!!!!!!$

      Yeah, the word is that it’s Rhodey in the Iron Patriot armor – no Dark Avengers/Norman Osborne this go around.
