Iron Man 3 adds another castmember in James Badge Dale

05.16.2012

As IRON MAN 3 prepares to go before the lens within the next month, another actor has joined its ranks.  James Badge Dale (THE PACIFIC, THE DEPARTED) has signed on to play Eric Slavin, who is a cyborg/mercenary named Coldblood in his Marvel Comics form.  No word on whether or not the character will take on this form in the film or not, but then again, the details have been pretty sparse on the sequel anyway.  Not that I'm complaining.  I like the suspense and Marvel has been pretty good at keeping specific details under wraps thus far. 

I'm totally stoked for Shane Black's interpretation of the character and anticipate a really cool, funny, and action-packed character piece with some really sweet techno-gadgetry.  That's just wishful thinking, but I'm a big fan of Black's work, so perhaps my wish will come true.

Either way, IRON MAN 3 is heating up.  Expect to hear more as it starts production and mark your calendar for May 3, 2013 (less than a year, folks!) when it hits theaters.

Tidbit:

If you mean the very last scene involving Damon & Wahlberg, yeah I hated that scene too. It came out of nowhere and ended equally without any explanation. Otherwise, a great fucking film man!

I read Iron Man but am drawing a complete blank on "Coldblood". That can't be a good sign. When I heard his name I thought Obadiah Stane's son but what's a "Coldblood"??? Not Ghost or Spymaster???

I'll always remember him most as Chase Edmunds, Jack Bauer's younger partner, in season 3 of 24. Cool casting. Look forward to this movie. Hopefully it'll be great and erase the memory of Iron Man 2.

Great Actor

JBD was awesome in the AMC series 'Rubicon'. I'm very psyched to see him in IM3.

Nice casting news, curious if he'll actually be Coldblood.

I really hope The Mandarin is in this film. I like the first two Iron Mans, but the villains were rather weak in my opinion.

Awesome. This is shaping up to be another great flick in a great series. The two Iron Man movies are so much better than The Avengers.

Sweet. And if it is indeed Slavin he's playing, thats an inspired character choice for this flick that can work with the purported theme of nanotechnology run amok.
