Iron Man 3

There's a new "Iron Man 3" poster dropping today. It's unclear when, and it's unclear where, but Marvel made it official on their Facebook page that fans can expect a brand new look at Shane Black's "Iron Man" film at some point in the coming hours. All we have to go on right now is the teaser image above: the slightest of looks at Don Cheadle as James "Rhodey" Rhodes, sweat trickling down from his forehead, and what appears to be the signature War Machine shoulder-mounted cannon on his back.

UPDATE: The full poster is here. Check it out!

Iron Man 3

Tony Stark is the star of the "Iron Man 3" show, but don't think for a second that Rhodey is just hanging around for fun.

Robert Downey Jr. spoke with EW.com recently about what fans can expect from the coming "Iron Man" threequel, and apparently, a beefed up presence for Don Cheadle's armored-up hero, War Machine, is high up on the list.

War Machine

"Iron Man" would have you believe that you need to be an impossibly wealthy playboy philanthropist in order to develop and wear a high-tech suit of armor.

Stealth Cosplay begs to differ.

The cosplayer extraordinaire has invented a rather remarkable (not to mention functional) suit of War Machine armor. It's easily one of the coolest examples of cosplay we've seen in a long, long time, and something that "Iron Man" fans shouldn't miss out on.

Take a look at the suit in action below!

War Machine

As much as we love "The Avengers" around Splash Page headquarters, there's one question we're still asking ourselves: where the heck was War Machine?

Tony Stark's equally armored pal James "Rhodey" Rhodes would have been an invaluable asset in the Battle of New York against Loki and his Chitauri horde. So why didn't he suit up for the war?

If you're a reader of the comic books, you'll find out the answer in January.

The first issue of "Marvel's Iron Man 3 Prelude," a two-part prequel comic to next summer's "Iron Man 3," hits stands in January and reveals, among other details, exactly what War Machine was up to during the events of "The Avengers."

When we last saw Don Cheadle's Jim "Rhodey" Rhodes in "Iron Man 2," he had just snagged his own superhero suit, War Machine, to team up with Tony Stark's Iron Man. We've already seen that his suit gets some seriously cool upgrades for "Iron Man 3," so what will that mean for the relationship between the two longtime friends?

MTV Splash Page editor Josh Wigler caught up with Don Cheadle while he was promoting "Iron Man 3" at Comic-Con and he teased that Stark wasn't going to be too happy with how cool War Machine is looking nowadays.

"There's suit envy, which is fun. 'Who's really the big dog?' We just get to play with that more," Cheadle teased. "Robert and I always have a lot of fun when we're acting together."

A lot has been made about the impending arrival of Iron Patriot. The star-spangled supervillain has been spotted on the "Iron Man 3" set on more than one occasion, leading many to wonder exactly what Norman Osborn's "superhero" alter-ego is doing in the film, especially considering that Norman himself, as a Spider-Man villain, doesn't belong to Marvel Studios.

Well, cast those questions aside: the Iron Patriot's identity has been uncovered, and it's not what we were led to believe. Keep reading to find out more.

War MachineIt sounds as if Don Cheadle will be back for “Iron Man 3" but not for “The Avengers” as James "Rhodey" Rhodes/War Machine.

When asked by Collider about appearing in any more Marvel movies, Cheadle replied, “Well the Iron Man 3 is coming back. We'll probably do that again in February and there's talk of a War Machine spinoff, which I guess, unless I get recast, I would probably do.”

Cheadle likely brought up the possibility of being recast because he’d been cast to replace Terrence Howard, who played James Rhodes in the first “Iron Man” movie. Read More...

In the time leading up to the premiere of "Iron Man 2," it was hard to decide which debut was bigger news: Don Cheadle becoming War Machine or Robert Downey Jr. unveiling the Briefcase Armor. While there's a good chance we'll see more of Tony Stark's portable armor in future installments of the franchise, the second film had barely hit theaters before talk of a solo "War Machine" movie began circulating around the 'net.

Last we heard from Cheadle, he dismissed the idea of a solo movie featuring Iron Man's gunmetal-gray counterpart. However, when speaking to MTV News during this year's Sundance Film Festival, he indicated that a "War Machine" solo movie was not only in the works, but the studio may already have a writer.

"They're developing it now, they're working on that," Cheadle told MTV News when asked about a "War Machine" movie. "I think they've hired a writer, so we'll see how it goes. It would be a lot of fun." Read More...

Late last year, Jeff Bridges publicly stated that the first "Iron Man" film was shot without a script, and the production largely relied on the improvisation skills of the actors — in particular, Robert Downey Jr. who portrayed the title role.

While Downey's "Iron Man 2" co-stars Sam Rockwell and Olivia Munn have previously reported that their parts in the movie were heavily improvised. However, according to Don Cheadle — who takes over the role of Jim Rhodes from Terrance Howard — "Iron Man 2" was also filmed without a script.

"No, there wasn't [a locked-in script]," related Cheadle. "To be honest, We did improv a lot. We were very often sort of on a journey of discovery in the scenes, trying to find out where we were, who we were, what it was going to be. Read More...

We all know War Machine makes his triumphant debut this week in "Iron Man 2," but what's in store for James "Rhodey" Rhodes after the credits roll?

With "Avengers" on the way and a third installment of the "Iron Man" movie franchise very likely, MTV News asked actor Don Cheadle where his character and Robert Downey Jr.'s Tony Stark go from here.

"We've talked in loose terms about the possibility of another film, but not any specifics about what will happen, where they will be or what they'll be doing," Cheadle told MTV News. Read More...
