For anyone who doesn’t know what the feck is going on with the star-spangled armor in the Iron Man 3 set photos:
After Civil War (the big punch up between the pro-superhero registration camp, headed by Iron Man/Tony Stark with the US Government, and the anti-registration camp, headed by Captain America/Steve Rogers and others) the superhero community is fractured, reeling over the death of Captain America. Tony is in charge of SHIELD, but he’s not doing a great job, and half the superhero community HATES HIM. This infighting means the country’s defense is severely weakened. And then there’s a Skrull invasion. Everything is thrown into chaos, Washington is attacked, blah blah national crisis. And the guy who manages to kill the Skrull Queen, end the invasion, and instantly get himself catapulted to national hero status is Norman Osborn.
As a result Osborn is allowed free reign over the country’s defense. SHIELD is disbanded and Osborn’s organisation HAMMER takes its place. Osborn’s also put in charge of the Avengers Initiative, and builds the team with… well, some rather unsavory folks, such as Venom, Daken and Bullseye, only they’re dressed in the old Avengers’ costumes to keep the public from freaking out. Osborn leads this team as the Iron Patriot, wearing what is basically one of Tony’s old suits but given a paint job to invoke Captain America and tinkered with a bit.
What an asshole.
It’s awful. Osborn is operating in a power vacuum; Steve Rogers is believed to be dead, Tony Stark is on the run, Nick Fury’s in hiding, SHIELD is disbanded, and the X Men, as usual, have their own problems to worry about. Norman Osborn’s Avengers are basically the only superhero team around. The Government gives them a very long leash, and they abuse the hell out of that power, with Osborn eventually engineering a diplomatic incident as an excuse to march on Asgard with his Avengers team.
Why am I telling you this? Because obviously none of that’s going to happen in Iron Man 3. Because due to the licensing issues leftover from the original Sam Raimi Spider-Man movies, Osborn can’t be in any of the reboots. And because even if we did have Osborn, we are a long, long way from Civil War, Secret Invasion, Dark Reign and Siege.
So the question is: who the hell is going to be wearing the Iron Patriot suit?
Zach Braff for president
Robert Downey Jr. and Tom Hiddleston share a moment together on stage while Jeremy Renner feels like the third wheel.
