Seriously, WHY!? Also, WHO? I know who Iron Patriot is in the comics but it surely can't be the same character, right? That character has already died in the Marvel movie-verse and is primarily a Spider-Man foe anyway. So logically, one would assume it would be Stark in a redeco'ed suit. But again I ask... why?
In the books, Iron Patriot is the persona Norman Osborne takes on as leader of the Dark Avengers when (through a confluence of events) he gets handed the 'top cop' job and ousts SHIELD for his own security agency. The main reason it's styled after Captain America is as 'tribute' to Cap after his 'death' following Civil War.
Here, since Osborne obviously isn't actually involved, it's basically a completely new story being played out. The character in the suit is called Eric Savin. His only real link to any of this is his cyborgness and affiliation with Roxxon (who have been name checked a dozen times in the movies now - so it's inevitable they're going to show up sooner rather than later). It's probable that the character of 'Coldblood' won't even be acknowledged at all, and they've just used the name for the sake of tying it to something within the books at all.
I think it's interesting that it's definitely an Iron Man suit, though. Could Tony have designed it for Cap to wear?
