New ‘Iron Man 3’ Poster Showcases Don Cheadle As The Iron Patriot [Image]

The latest Iron Man 3 poster currently making the rounds showcases co-star Don Cheadle as the Iron Patriot.

The new poster arrived one day after Marvel posted a teaser of the image over at the movie’s official Facebook page. Since people have been anxious to see Cheadle as the Iron Patriot, the studio decided to tease the one-sheet before giving the masses what they want.

Don Cheadle and War Machine didn’t get very many good scenes in Iron Man 2, so fans are certainly hoping the upcoming follow-up will treat the character and his robotic suit a little better. You can find the latest character poster embedded below.

Here’s what the flick is all about:

“Marvel Studios’ ‘Iron Man 3′ pits brash-but-brilliant industrialist Tony Stark/Iron Man against an enemy whose reach knows no bounds. When Stark finds his personal world destroyed at his enemy’s hands, he embarks on a harrowing quest to find those responsible. This journey, at every turn, will test his mettle. With his back against the wall, Stark is left to survive by his own devices, relying on his ingenuity and instincts to protect those closest to him. As he fights his way back, Stark discovers the answer to the question that has secretly haunted him: does the man make the suit or does the suit make the man?”

The new character poster arrives a little over a week after Marvel dropped a TV spot and an “extended look” clip during the Super Bowl. As the sequel’s release date draws near, it would seem the studio’s promotional department is pulling out all of the proverbial stops.

The new one-sheet has been included below.

Don Cheadle

Iron Man 3 stars Robert Downey Jr., Gwyneth Paltrow, Don Cheadle, Ben Kingsley, Guy Pearce, Rebecca Hall, James Dale Badge, Jon Favreau, and Ashley Hamilton. Look for the flick to arrive in theaters on May 3.
