It’s gotta be difficult being Tony Stark’s friend. He’s self-obsessed, self-loathing self-destructive – in short, it’s all about him.
Well, after two movies of being Stark’s go-to guy, James “Rhodey” Rhodes is finally set to become his own man, donning his own armor to become the Iron Patriot. You can check out Don Cheadle in full Iron Patriot armor in this new Iron Man 3 character poster:
The film’s synopsis promises that Tony will discover “the answer to the question that has secretly haunted him: does the man make the suit or does the suit make the man?” How better to do this than having Rhodey give him a run for his money in the technologically empowered superhero stakes?
Iron Man 3 is due out on May 3rd, written and directed by Shane Black, and features the Academy Award nominated Cheadle in the role of James “Rhodey” Rhodes alongside Robert Downey Jr.’s Tony Stark.
