Which characters may be altered by Extremis in Iron Man 3?

Mar. 19, 2013by: Alex Maidy

This has been bothering me since the recent IRON MAN 3 trailer premiered. We have known for a while now that the Extremis comic was being incorporated into the story for the new film, but never to what extent. We do know that Rebecca Hall and Guy Pierce are playing doctors Maya Hansen and Aldrich Killian, the designers of the Extremis virus, but not whether they would be altered by it. I was less concerned with them as I was with the two images above. What if the Extremis storyline is a plot designed to make Pepper Potts into a superhero?

ScreenRant has taken an interesting look at the trailers and images for IRON MAN 3 and supposes that Killian may turn into a victim of the virus and become an enemy for both Tony Stark and the Mandarin to battle. We see a sequence in the trailer showing multiple patients being given the virus, one of whom resembles actress Stephanie Szostak who has been rumored to be playing Wasp. Whether that is true or not, the images above clearly show Gwyneth Paltrow strapped to the same contraption as the Extremis patients and what I theorize is the character after she has been transformed by it. The shot of Paltrow in her bra surrounded by debris and flames looks like the result of the lab after being destroyed. Of course, this is all theory.

This brief new trailer features a little new footage, including Happy Hogan (Jon Favreau) apparently injured gravely. The stakes are clearly raised in IRON MAN 3, but would Shane Black and the Marvel team make this huge move? I think so. In the comics, Pepper eventually dons her own suit and becomes Rescue. In the Extremis story, Tony himself is forever altered by the virus, but if they made that change to the woman he loves, that would provide some serious drama for future films, as well as launch a potential spin-off as well.

We have only weeks to go as IRON MAN 3 opens everywhere on May 3, 2013.

@ BrandO84, The headline IS the spoiler!

The headline reads: Which characters may be altered by Extremis in Iron Man 3? Then there a picture of Gwyneth Paltrow. And guess who the article says gets infected?

Don't put fucking spoilers in the goddamn headline.

@ Mr. Moe:
The fact that there might be spoilers in the article is pretty inherent in the title. If you don't want to know if anyone else is altered by the Extremis virus, don't click the link/read the article. Even still, a lot of the content of this article is hypothetical. Maidy is merely conjecturing at possibilities based on what he's provided in the series of trailers released for the movie so far.

He's not coming out and say, "new info states that Pepper will be hit with the Extremis virus and given superpowers." For some, half the fun of waiting for a big movie like IRON MAN 3 is guessing where the filmmakers are going to take it, what new elements of the Marvel universe are being introduced, etc. All I'm saying is, give Maidy a break and be a little more careful of which articles you read if you're trying to remain spoiler-lite.
