Shame and The Grey star James Badge Dale has joined the cast of Iron Man 3, which starts shooting soon. Dale is set take on a villainous role, playing a character who is likely U.S. Army Lieutenant Colonel Eric Savin, aka Coldblood, according to Deadline.
In the comic books, Colonel Savin is in charge of Project: Ultra-Tech. He steps on a landmine that blows his body to pieces. After being dead for 2.3 minutes, he is brought back to life as a cyborg and becomes an urban soldier who freelances as a mercenary. Though on the side of good in the comics, Savin will apparently be going villainous in Iron Man 3.
Iron Man 3 begins shooting this month in North Carolina
