James Badge Dale as Eric Savin/Coldblood
Star of Martin Scorsese's "The Departed", James Badge Dale explained that his character, Eric Savin a.k.a. Coldblood, helps to complete the villain trinity of "Marvel's Iron Man 3", "Ben Kingsley (The Mandarin) is the voice, Guy Pearce (Aldrich Killian) is the brain and me, Coldblood, is the force."
Dale added that the Coldblood in the movie will not be the same Coldbood in the Marvel comics, although they may look the same. In the comics, Eric Savin is revived as the cyborg Coldblood-7 by Dr. Gina Dyson and the other Project: Ultra-Tech surgeons. This results in Savin having supernatural powers, speed, stamina and endurance, as well as a strengthened nervous system. Coldblood also has the ability to communicate with any virtual computer system.
Wang Xueqi as Dr. Wu
The son of George Hamilton and Alana Stewart plays the role of Jack Taggert. In the Marvel comics, Taggert is one of the engineers who were tasked with creating an experimental pilotable suit for Project: Firepower, run by Edwin Cord, Tony Stark's business rival. The project was ostensibly designated by the U.S. Armed Forces as part of the country's defence against enemies. However, when Iron Man launched his "Armor Wars", attacking armored villains and even government agents without provocation, the Firepower program was modified with the specific goal of stopping Iron Man.
Before "Marvel's Iron Man 3", Hamilton has appeared as a contestant in the reality dancing show, "Dancing With The Stars"!
Guy Pearce as Aldrich Killian
This English actress is no stranger to film, having given great performances in "The Prestige", "Vicky Christina Barcelona" and "The Town". However, this is the first time that the BAFTA winner is appearing in a superhero film, playing Dr. Maya Hansen, one of the creators of the Extremis virus.
Before Hall was chosen, actresses Gemma Arterton, Diane Kruger and Isla Fisher were considered for the role. "Zero Dark Thirty" star, Jessica Chastain, was first casted as Maya Hansen, but dropped out of the cast list as she was too busy.
Hall describes Maya Hansen as a strong female character, and revealed that she decided to take the role because she has never done "the 'hurry up and wait' movie before. Iron Man is refreshing in a way because it's something out of my realm of experiences."
