Sir Ben Kingsley is already onboard as "unnamed" Villain No 1., but Variety reports that a second bad guy will show up to give Robert Downey Jr. hell in Iron Man 3. Rubicon's James Badge Dale is in talks to play Eric Savin, an Army lieutenant colonel who — in the comic books, at least — steps on a land mine and is turned into the cyborg* Coldblood. (*Sexy cyborg, we assume.)
