Don Cheadle’s ‘Iron Man 3’ Character Poster Debuts

Don Cheadle in 'Iron Man 3' Don Cheadle is officially a badass! Marvel Studios just released a brand new ‘Iron Man 3’ character poster featuring Cheadle as Iron Patriot.

Cheadle plays James Rhodes, a colonel in the U.S. Airforce and a jet pilot. He’s also Tony Stark/Iron Man’s (Robert Downey Jr.) best friend. If this new poster is any indication, it looks like Cheadle has an increased role in the sequel and is on his way to becoming Hollywood’s next big action star.

The official synopsis reads:

Marvel’s “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 film also stars Gwyneth Paltrow, Guy Pearce, Rebecca Hall, Stephanie Szostak, James Badge Dale with Jon Favreau and Ben Kingsley.

Iron Man 3 hits theaters on May 3.
