Marvel has released a new poster for director Shane Black’s upcoming sequel Iron Man 3, and this time Robert Downey Jr.’s Tony Stark is nowhere to be found. Don Cheadle gets his day in the sun on this poster, which features the actor decked out in the Iron Patriot armor. It’s a pretty nifty one-sheet, and it looks as if the background scene is the same from the recent “Iron Man is falling from the sky” poster, in which the titular hero was shown in a fairly perilous situation.
Hit the jump to take a look at the new poster. The film also stars Gwyneth Paltrow, Ben Kingsley, Rebecca Hall, Guy Pearce, Jon Favreau and James Badge Dale. Iron Man 3 opens in 3D on May 3rd.

Here’s the official synopsis for Iron Man 3:
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?
