Iron Man 3 (2013): James Badge Dale Cast as Eric "Coldblood"
James Badge Dale (Lone Ranger, World War Z, The Grey) has been cast as Eric Savin, aka Coldblood in the comics according to Variety.
It is unknown how close the movie will follow the comic book version, as Eric Savin, a Lieutenant Colonel in the U.S. Army in charge of Project: Ultra-Tech, stepped on a mine and was blown to bits only to be put back together in the form of the cyborg -- Coldblood!
I'm not familiar with the character and unsure if Coldblood ever went toe-to-toe with Iron Man, but his powers seem to make him a formidable opponent for Iron Man as Coldblood can interface with any computer system. Actually, this could make Coldblood a valuable asset for Tony Stark as Iron Man 3 is said to deal with Warren Ellis' "Extremis" arc from the comics. A Deathlok Easter Egg would be a nice touch for the movie, as Coldblood has battled that fellow cyborg before in the comics as well.
Iron Man 3 blasts off May 3rd, 2013 directed by Shane Black and starring Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson (Black Widow), Gwyneth Paltrow and Don Cheadle.
