Golden Globe-winning actor Don Cheadle is ready for his close-up.  The popular House of Lies star is getting his own Marvel poster for the highly-anticipated sure-to-be summer blockbuster Iron Man 3.

Reprising his role as Capt. James Rhodes, a.k.a. War Machine (which he took over from Terrence Howard in Iron Man 2) , it looks like Cheadle will be playing a prominent role in the action again in this sequel, which stars Robert Downey Jr. as the titular hero and Ben Kingsley and Guy Pearce in the villainous roles.  Both Iron Man (2008) and its 2010 sequel grossed over $300 million domestically at the box office.  Iron Man 3 hits theaters on May 3.
