Iron Man 3 to have cyborgs?Posted 12:57 pm on Wednesday, May 16th, 2012 by John 'Spartan' Nguyen
With the casting of James Badge Dale as Eric Savin announced, it may be a possibility that we’ll be seeing cyborg-action in Iron Man 3. In the Marvel comics, Eric Savin was turned into the cyborg Coldblood-7 after stepping on a land mine.
We’re not sure if Eric Savin will ultimately become Coldblood, but it has fans thinking whether they want another tech vs. tech movie. We’ve had tech villains like Iron Monger and Whiplash in Iron Man 1 & 2. Many were hoping that Iron Man 3 would deviate from that and focus on a different type of villain by the name of The Mandarin. Director Shane Black mentioned that The Mandarin is a racist caricature. Then again, there were reports that The Mandarin could be an organization, and not a singular man.
