Oh Marvel, you find such clever ways to promote your products from one medium to another. Remember when Hawkeye and Ghost Rider were added in Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3? Well it was Marvel’s way of hyping up Ghost Rider 2: Spirit of Vengeance and the Avengers before they came out.
Well here is another little secret Marvel was planning for us. In Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3, Iron Man had a special costume skin known as “Iron Patriot.” It’s pretty much an Iron Man outfit with a red, white and blue color scheme, which was inspired from the comic book.
Here is how it looked like in the comic book when Norman Osborn wore it with the Dark Avengers.
And here is a leaked set photo of “Iron Patriot” in Iron Man 3.
It will worn by Eric Savin/Coldblood, who is just one of three enemies Tony Stark will have to face in the movie. Let’s hope this won’t be like Iron Man 2 again when Jim Rhodes and Tony Stark duked it out during Tony’s party.
