Marvel Studios has released a great new poster for Shane Black’s Iron Man 3. This poster features Don Cheadle suited and booted as a red, white and blue painted War Machine, newly rebranded as Iron Patriot.

Kiss, Kiss, Bang, Bang director Black is taking over at the helm with Robert Downey Jr., Gwyneth Paltrow, Cheadle and Jon Favreau all returning in starring roles. Ben Kingsley is on villain duties as the Mandarin, with Guy Pearce and Rebecca Hall also newcomers.

Iron Man 3 will come to Irish screens April 26th, 2013.

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?

Starring Robert Downey Jr., Gwyneth Paltrow, Don Cheadle, Guy Pearce, Rebecca Hall, Stephanie Szostak, James Badge Dale with Jon Favreau and Ben Kingsley, Iron Man 3 is directed by Shane Black from a screenplay by Drew Pearce and Shane Black and is based on Marvel’s iconic Super Hero Iron Man, who first appeared on the pages of Tales of Suspense (#39) in 1963 and had his solo comic book debut with The Invincible Iron Man (#1) in May of 1968.
