Don Cheadle is the Iron Patriot in New ‘Iron Man 3’ Poster

Okay, you have to help me out here since I don’t read comics. I thought Don Cheadle‘s James Rhodes character became War Machine, but now I’m being told this is him pictured in this new poster for Iron Man 3 as the Iron Patriot. Are they one and the same? Is one bad and the other good?

I guess I probably don’t want to know and would rather just find out when the movie hits theaters on May 3.

Iron Man 3 is directed by Shane Black and along with Cheadle and Robert Downey Jr. back as Tony Stark, the film co-stars Ben Kingsley as the villainous Mandarin, Don Cheadle as James Rhodes/War Machine, Gwyneth Paltrow as Pepper Potts, Guy Pearce as Aldrich Killian, Rebecca Hall as Maya Hansen, James Badge Dale as Maya Hansen and William Sadler as Sal Kennedy.
