New Iron Man 3 Iron Patriot Poster Lands
Don Cheadle is War Machine no more...

13 February 2013  |  Written by Ali Plumb  |  Source: Disney

Forget War Machine, this is Iron Patriot. Both are played by / operated by / essentially are Don Cheadle's character, James Rupert "Rhodey" Rhodes, but in Iron Man 3 his armour's been given both an upgrade and a flash new stars and stripes paint job, as you can see for yourself in the poster below.

Where the sparks are from is a mystery, what weapon that is on his back unclear - something machine gun-like is a safe bet - but it's good to see that the former Mr. Machine War Machine is going to get in on the action in Shane Black's upcoming comic-book threequel.

The movie, of course, finds Robert Downey Jr’s billionaire playboy philanthropist up to his metallic neck in trouble as he’s targeted by the Mandarin (Ben Kingsley) and other nasty types intent on taking him down a peg or 15. Check out the trailer below for a better handle on what to expect.

Iron Man 3, directed by Shane Black from a script by Black and Drew Pearce, also features Ben Kingsley, Gwyneth Paltrow, Guy Pearce, Rebecca Hall, James Badge Dale and Jon Favreau. It’ll finally swagger into our cinemas on April 26.
