    The Iron Patriot armor is awesome. Can't believe people are ragging on it (not here but comment sections on certain movie blogs). Oh yeah that's right anything that has America on it must be decried as awful and stupid.

    I like it. :up:

    To think I liked Scotland. What a fool I've been. ;) :p

    I think the suit is for a villain anyhow, right?

    lol

    Yup, this guy.

    Though that's just in the comics though. It seems there's another possible character merging going on. People claim the guy in the pics wearing the armour is the guy who was reportedly cast as Coldblood (not a big name character I gather). So it could be someone else under the armour, but it's hard to tell with very few facts at the moment. It's mostly conjecture.

    I've got a feeling the America suit is just a tribute to Captain America in some way.

    You know, looking at the armor, anyone notice the shoulder mounted gun, wonder if its a repainted war machine, maybe the US military is using War Machine as a USO kind of thing, just an idea.

    Yeah, lots of us have been speculating it's either the WM armour remodelled or they've made more based on WM design. Looking at the set pics (and what is present of the armour) and some WM pics it does look like they share more similarities than with the IM armour.

    Agreed. I remember thinking Captain America's outfit was horrible on the set of The Avengers, but actually seeing it in the movie changed my mind. I didn't think the outfit was too bad in the end with the editing and movie magic.

    If you thought that was b***hing then you should have seen the Cap boards before TFA. I think some people were determined to turn them into a star-spangled imitation of the Bat boards. lol

    I remember that. Especially when there was that first pic of the stunt man on the motorcycle. People were ready to lynch the set! Then when Avengers was ramping up, they all slammed the new suit and praised the one from The First Avenger.

    So fickle.

    Tell me about it. You remember the 'futuristic belt buckle'? A couple of tiny differences in a couple of concept pieces drove half of the board to try and convince the other half that there was a modern Captain America costume in TFA. lol

    Clearly. But what sort of tribute, and why?

    It's without doubt based on the Iron Patriot design. Identical. But Iron Patriot is obviously an entirely different (and unusable) character ffrom the comics (i.e., Norman Osborn) that was done as an homage (parody) of Cap, who is (was) dead. *This* armor is done as an homage to a Cap who is still very much alive in the MCU, so the backstory behind the design has to be entirely different than Osborn's.

    And with this clear reference to Cap, makes me wonder how they'll be able to do it *without* actually including a cameo by Cap himself.

    I think the color is simply because the IP armor from the top is red. It could be easily mistaken for Iron Man in action. The comics got away with it by having Iron Man be mia for the duration. But movie wise I can easily see the audience mistaking him for Iron Man if the two were on screen together or in trailers. It's one of those reasons why War Machine is black and white.

    I can easily see that being that case as to why the IP is now mainly blue instead of red.

    So it does look like the armor is going to be more gold than previous versions. Also, it's kind of funny that he has one finger that's gold and the rest are red; so we could always call it the "Goldfinger" armor.

    That art just weirds me out because RDJ looks so huge.
    It's like Hemsworth's body with RDJ's face

    Obviously I'll have to see the full suit before I can pass complete judgment, but I for one like that their distributing more of the gold around the armor.
