Spoilers: What is in store for Pepper Potts in Iron Man 3?

Nov. 12, 2012by:

If you can't already tell from the title, this article is spoiler heavy. For those who don't care about reading spoilers or those who have read the Extremis comic or issue #29 of Invincible Iron Man then I welcome you to read on.

Simon Philips, Marvel President of International and Consumer products threw down some pretty juicy bits of information on IRON MAN 3 during a presentation in So Paulo. Actually, he threw down some stuff that could potentially ruin part of the movie for people as if he didn't know the internet ever existed. Yeah, because no one cares about Marvel movie spoilers.

The first trailer did nothing but show the complete destruction of Tony Stark's world. Hey, this is what happens when you reveal your true identity to the world. Things seem to have gone from worse to worse. How will Tony make it out? Who will be there to help him out? What's a girl to do?

It looks like Pepper might be joining in on the action. This is the sum of what Philips had to say:

Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) will eventually have an underground Hall of Armors with at least 16 new armors, including a few classic designs from the comics. Simon Philips also revealed, or confirmed, that Virginia Pepper Potts (Gwyneth Paltrow) will indeed get in on the action, this time by donning her own suit of armor; similar to doing so with the Rescue suit in the comic books.

In addition, the report also captioned a scene from last month's teaser trailer, where Tony Stark is seen lying on a hospital bed, seemingly readying an operation. As expected, Philips apparently confirmed that it's during that scene that Stark is being injected with the Extremis virus. And as a result, he'll be able to create new armors from leftover pieces of older ones. For example, as Protocida notes, Stark will use arms and legs from previous models to create a new design.

Hmmmm, so if they decide at some point to do another IRON MAN film, will Pepper do the sidekick thing as Rescue?

If Robert Downey Jr doesn't make an Iron Maiden joke during the movie I'm demanding my money back.

You guys STILL don't handle spoilers right...

If folks HAVE read "Iron Man 29" they don't automatically know anything about the MOVIE. So you can't say "there are spoilers below, but if you've read Iron Man 29 then it's ok". It is NOT ok! You just TOLD those poor suckers who KNOW the content of Iron Man 29 that the movie contains that content! You've spoiled it for them!

Been thinking about this for a long time, but...

Is it just me, or does the Mark 42 armor remind anyone else of Mass Effect as well?

I'll be honest, I do not particularly care for the Extremis story arc.

I read it in the comics and didn't care for it. It wasn't poorly written or anything, it just wasn't my thing. I do think it's kind of an odd choice for the films though, since unless they make some considerable changed it seems like it'd really clash with the realistic tone they emphasized in the first film. Although, I supposed The Avengers has already taken care of taking the character into more far-fetched territory. I still would have liked to have seen a more character centric arc like

Whew, I'm actually glad I read that. I thought the spoiler was going to be that they were going to kill her off.

Bring on Rescue

she is a perfect use, the suit is not battle ready, just used in case Tony is in bad shape and needs a quick exit. Giving Pepper this role, will help redefine women in comic book films. We have the Catwomen and Black Widows. But giving Pepper this, showing that Gwen Stacy didn't have to be a victim in the ASM movie. We are moving along pretty well with the role of women in comic book films.

This exactly! I love ScarJo's Black Widow, but Marvel needs to step up and get more of its female heroines onscreen. Particularly those heroines without reputations femme fatales. Seeing Pepper become Rescue, a bigger role for Sif in Thor 2, and hopefully the intro of Ms Marvel in 'Guardians of the Galaxy' would be a great start.

Love Pepper, and highly encouraging if true that we'll see her don the 'Rescue' suit.

I have a feeling Pepper is probably going to die either in this entry or in The Avengers 2. Her purpose is continuing to wear thin.
