With his back against the wall, Stark is left to survive by his own devices, relying on his ingenuity and instincts to protect those closest to him.

*SPOILERS START HERE*
Various sites have confirmed reports that one of the villains will be in fact a recently used character from the Marvel mainstream comics, ‘Iron Patriot’.
The armor made its first appearance in 2009’s “Dark Avengers” #1. Following the events of the “Secret Invasion” crossover, Norman Osborn was mistakenly heralded as an American hero and tasked with leading a group of government-sanctioned Avengers. Taking the technology from Stark Industries, Osborn designed his suit to represent the then-recently-deceased, Captain America.
Due to Spider-Man being owned by Sony (movie rights), the man behind the mask won’t be William Dafoe or anyone named Norman Osborn, but actor James Badge Dale (The Grey, Shame), who recently joined the cast of Marvel Studios’ Iron Man 3.
“Dale will play Eric Savin. In the Marvel comicbooks, he’s a Lieutenant Colonel in the U.S. Army put in charge of Project: Ultra. After stepping on a land mine, cybernetic surgery is performed on him and he’s resurrected as the cyborg Coldblood.” – Variety
Also noted by ‘Variety’, is that this movie will feature more elements from the ‘Extremis’ story line (comic book), which the first movie took ideas from as well. Though to my personal understanding, the only thing that was based off that story was the design of the suit for the movie.
THAT’S IT! Cheers: “To Peace” and May the Force be with you!
