The love of one’s country is a splendid thing. But why should love stop at the border? (Pablo Casals, such a clever man.) So, let’s spread some love and share the latest poster(s) for the upcoming Iron Man 3, shall we? When I first saw that character poster with Don Cheadle, I was like – oh, look, Iron Patriot inspired armor, not bad at all! But then, some crazy fan came up with a funny idea and as you’re about to see – now we have three Iron Man posters with two new characters – Barack Obama & Vladimir Putin! Check them all out and let us know what you think!
But first, a little reminder – Iron Man 3 comes from director Shane Black, and beside Don Cheadle also stars Robert Downey Jr., Gwyneth Paltrow, Guy Pearce, Rebecca Hall, Stephanie Szostak, James Badge Dale, Jon Favreau, Ben Kingsley and Wang Xuequi.
Once again the movie will center on brash-but-brilliant industrialist Tony Stark/Iron Man who will have to fight against an enemy whose reach knows no bounds. The rest of the story goes like this:
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?
Iron Man 3 is set to open on May 3rd, 2013.
Now, about these posters (click for a better look)…
Maybe Putin’s head looks a little bit strange here, but you have to admit that Rhodes and Putin have a lot in common. Jim is an experienced soldier trained in unarmed combat and military weaponry, he’s a pilot, engineer, soldier, and businessman…
And look at that nickname – Vova (works for Vladimir in Russia), I can totally see this quote on IMDB:
Iron Man: You have *a* big gun, you’re not *the* big gun.
Col. Vova: We discussed this very important issue yesterday over a beer, железный человек!
Yep, that’s why I love sci-fi…
