Marvel supremo has been talking all things Iron Man 3 recently and more specifically the ongoing will she/won't she saga that Pepper Potts () is going to suit up and kick some ass of her own. About.com scored an interview with Feige and also watched a short clip from the movie, which apparently featured Potts stepping into the Iron Man armor. Here's what Feige had to say about the future of Ms Potts and those Iron Man suits:
I will tell you this. In this movie [Iron Man 3] we play with the convention of the damsel in distress. We are bored by the damsel in distress. But, sometimes we need our hero to be desperate enough in fighting for something other than just his own life. So, there is fun to be had with "Is Pepper in danger or is Pepper the savior?" over the course of this movie. In terms of where we go with future movies, we’ll see. In the comic books she does get a taste for the suit and becomes her own hero named Rescue, who doesn’t necessarily battle other people, but is on missions to help people and to save people. Will we do that down the line with Gwyneth Paltrow? Who knows. But her being in the suit is something we have been playing with since Iron Man 2, where we did some designs and it didn’t end up fitting in that movie. But the little taste you saw here [in an Iron Man 3 clip] is something that we’re certainly interested in.
So it would seem that Potts will indeed be taking the Iron Man armor out for a spin. Three cheers for Rescue!
