James Badge Dale joins Iron Man 3

Marvel introduces another famous character…

Iron Man 3 has added another new addition to its growing ensemble, with James Badge Dale the latest star to join the superhero sequel's increasingly starry cast.

The star of TV's The Pacific will play Eric Savin, a character Iron Man fans will remember well from the comics. A Lieutenant Colonel who takes charge of Project: Ultra in the original stories, Savin is perhaps best known for the landmine blast that took off one of his legs.

Resurrected as a cyborg via cybernetic surgery, Savin becomes the cyborg Coldblood, a skilled mercenary for hire. Whether or not that transformation will take place in Iron Man 3 remains to be seen. Perhaps Marvel are simply setting up the character for films further down the track…

What we do know is that the film's storyline will draw heavily upon Warren Ellis' Extremis series, in which Tony Stark finds his latest suit targeted by a virus designed to sabotage its new nanotechnology upgrades.

Directed by Shane Black and featuring a whole host of new cast members including Ben Kingsley, Guy Pearce and Rebecca Hall, Iron Man 3 will open in the UK on 3 May 2013. We can hardly wait...

      I only know him from 24.. he was in the third season (I haven't watched any after that). He was pretty good in it, nice to see someone lesser known getting a good role.

      You can't add an addition. An addition is something that has already been added. Even if you could, it's terribly inelegant English. I should have you job, hell I should have you editors job. Lucky for both of you I'm too busy with superhero duties. Oops, shouldn't have told you that...
