We’re getting our first look at Don Cheadle all suited up, sweaty and standing tall as War Machine (Iron Patriot) in the director Shane Black‘s upcoming Iron Man III movie. It’s nice change of pace from all the Robert Downey Jr. and Sir Ben Kingsley as the Mandarin coverage of late. Marvel tweeted the new poster a couple of hours ago.
That could be the damaged Air Force One scene in the background of the poster. We all saw that in the Iron Man III Superbowl spot where Tony Stark struggles to rescue everyone aboard that was sucked out of the plane after an explosion. Below is the original 30 second Iron man III Superbowl teaser spot.
This is the extended Iron Man III Superbowl spot.
I’ve enjoyed Cheadle’s work in other movies and television shows (Traitor, Traffic, Bulworth), he’s one of those rare actors that brings it every time he is on camera. The scenes between him and Robert Downey Jr. have a certain magical flair that i want to see more of. War Machine by Cheadle, would make a great guest star on Joss Whedon’s new television series S.H.I.E.L.D., which just wrapped up the pilot production shooting.
What do you think?
Iron man 3 opens nationwide on May 3rd, starring Robert Downey, Jr., Gwyneth Paltrow, Don Cheadle, Jon Favreau, Guy Pearce, Rebecca Hall, James Badge Dale and Ben Kingsley.
