Disney will be showcasing Iron Man 3 at the Super Bowl this weekend and we get a sneak peek from Entertainment Tonight.

Their footage is short, but it gives us our first official look at Don Cheadle as the Iron Patriot, with a promise of more to come.

It's rumored that James Rhodes dons the armor as a tribute to his favorite hero - Captain America!

Of course in the comics, it's worn by Spider-Man foe, Norman Osborn, as part of the Dark Avengers (great series).

It was also thought at first that James Badge Dale was to be featured in the armor as set images seemed to reveal the actor in the suit; however, it was then said that it was just a fill-in actor for Cheadle. Who knows, maybe Cold Blood gets his hands on it eventually?

The full Iron Man 3 trailer will debut Sunday, February 3rd during Super Bowl XLVII pitting the Baltimore Ravens against the San Francisco 49ers.


Iron Man 3 blasts off May 3rd, 2013 directed by Shane Black and starring Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Gwyneth Paltrow, Don Cheadle, Ben Kingsley, James Badge Dale and Guy Pierece.

Head on over to the Cosmic Book News The Avengers Movie Hub for more news, images and trailers.


Marvel Studios’ Iron Man 3 pits brash-but-brilliant industrialist Tony Stark/Iron Man against an enemy whose reach knows no bounds. 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?
