The Iron Man 3 media blitz continues to ramp up leading to its May 3, 2013 release. Today, via Marvel's twitter account, Marvel Studios released a new poster featuring Don Cheadle in his new armor as Iron Patriot.
Related promotional materials, such as toys shown at the 2013 Toy Fair have shown both War Machine and Iron Patriot armor, so Cheadle's James Rhodes may actually appear in both throughout the movie. This may actually be a repainted version of the War Machine, as indicated by the heavy artillery on his back.
This is also the first time, as far as we can tell, that this armor/character has been positively identified in an official capacity as "Iron Patriot," as noted on both Marvel's twitter account and official website.
