IRON MAN 3 character poster featuring Don Cheadle as The Iron Patriot

Fans got to see Tony Stark’s best friend Rhodey become War Machine in Iron Man 2, joining Iron Man in battle against Whiplash and hs drones.  Rhodey will step up again in Iron Man 3 becoming the Iron Patriot.  For our first good look at Don Cheadle in the Iron Patriot suit, check out this brand-new character poster:

The poster was unveiled on Iron Man 3‘s Facebook page, where you can also see a slightly larger version. You may remember they teased this poster yesterday, probably knowing how anxious fans were to get a look at Rhodey’s new suit.  It had been spotted on the set and in previously released photos, but this is the first time we’ve seen Cheadle popping out of the costume.  Given how War Machine was treated in Iron Man 2, introduced to calm down a drunk Iron Man, we’re hoping this time around he will fight alongside Iron Man for real.

Iron Man 3 is directed by Shane Black and stars Robert Downey Jr., Don Cheadle, Gwyneth Paltrow, Guy Pearce, Rebecca Hall, Ashley Hamilton, Jon Favreau and James Badge Dale and opens on May 3rd, 2013.
