Back at the epic Marvel Studios panel at this summer’s San Diego Comic Con, Marvel sort of hinted that Pepper may suit up in Iron Man 3. Someone asked a question about it, and they thought something like that would be pretty cool. The way they answered the question led some fans to think it was already planned for the movie, and now the President of Marvel International confirmed it. Comic Book Movie got their hands on a transcript from Brazil where he talked about Pepper suiting up in the movie:
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.
He also confirms that the scene in the trailer with Tony on the hospital bed is where the Extremis tech is introduced. Will Pepper get her own suit in the movie, or will she just be hijacking one of Tony’s?
