Avert your eyes now if you don’t want to know anything new about Iron Man 3.
Since the release of the awesome trailer for the upcoming Iron Man film, people have been speculating about whether Pepper Potts would be donning armor in the next movie. I was hoping it would be the case – it’s happened in the comics. Marvel International executive Simon Philips confirmed to a Brazilian news site that Potts will join the action. From Comic Book Movie:
“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.”
Philips also had more to say about the scene in the trailer where Stark is strapped to a hospital bed. That’s when Extremis nanotechnology – combining Iron Man’s armor with nanotechnology – is introduced. Exciting stuff.
