New Poster for IRON MAN 3 Highlights Don Cheadle as Iron Patriot

     February 13, 2013


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 KingsleyRebecca HallGuy PearceJon Favreau and James Badge DaleIron 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?

    Seems like they’re using the Iron Patriot armor to sell more toys.

    Loving the Iron Patriot inspired armor. It was the reason I picked up the first few issues of Dark Avengers. The iconography of the Iron Man armor mixed with Cap’s stars and stripes motif is pretty wicked! I have high hopes for this movie, but as always I have faith in Marvel and Kevin Feige, who in my opinion is the best movie producer ever. Because he wants to make cool movies.

    So, is Marvel using the name IRON PATRIOT and ignoring the Norman Osborn character? I haven’t seen anything official listing him as Iron Patriot. Isn’t he just a patriotic version of War Machine (like the Iron Patriot suit of the future Dark Avengers)? yet, all on the web, everyone keeps referring to him as Iron Patriot.


    is there something official that lists him as Iron Patriot? (cuz I don’t believe he is)

    on another note, the poster’s cool, but i wish movies would stop the “character poster” trend and just give us some awesome feature posters!

      Movie posters are, by and large, pretty boring these days. Just a bunch of head shots photoshopped together with some explosions and maybe fragments of set pieces. Character posters are something different at least; focusing on what drives a film in the first place. Alas, I’ve still seen better posters come out of Limited Paper. Way better.

      • TheFocusedFilmographer

        characters SHOULD at least drive most films. true! oftentimes though, character posters mean 5-20 different posters all for the same movie and it tends to be pretty redundant (depending on the movie). a lot of posters are pretty boring and I wish that would change. I love posters and highlight them every week on my site, but so many character posters lately are unnecessary nowadays.
