Default Re: The IRON MAN 3 News & Speculation Thread - Part 5

Hey! You know what we haven't had a lot of in this thread lately?
More stirring the pot about the white guy seen in the Iron Patriot suit!

Spoiler!!! Click to Read!:

Yeah, yeah....I know we've been back and forth --- here and all the other fansites --- about whether or not this is James Badge Dale or just a white stunt man filling in for Cheadle.

But has anyone considered a third option: maybe this is Ashley Hamilton?

Hamilton was confirmed for the cast a long time ago, yet no one seems to have seen or mentioned him. And we definitely haven't seen anything hinting at the canonical Firepower armor yet.

Is it possible he's been right here under our noses the whole time...?

Suppose Jack Taggert doesn't get the Firepower armor in this movie, but instead the Iron Patriot armor. I know that conventional wisdom says the IP armor is just War Machine in a red white n blue livery....

...but what if Rhodey no longer pilots War Machine?

Maybe Rhodey has been taken off the armor by the military (honorable or dishonorable discharge, take yer pick), and Taggert is given the honor instead?


...They move like slick cotton on oil.
