Hasbro is brand is synonymous with quality action figures and accessories. With the release of Avengers: Endgame, they continue to impress. Whether you’re a kid that needs your favorite figure to add to your epic imaginary figure battles or the adult seeking to add to their own collections (or vice versa!), Hasbro has you covered. Now, fair warning, if you haven’t seen Endgame yet A) WTF are you waiting for? And B) these figures feature some character and plot spoilers, so beware! New 6-inch figures, Titan Hero Series 12-inch figures, and children-sized roleplaying gear grace Hasbro’s latest line-up, giving some character some much needed attention and fans more collectibles and toys to drool over!
Iron Man 3 releases on May 3rd of next year, and when it does it’ll not only be the first non-Jon Favreau directed Iron Man film but it’ll also be the first of the post-Avengers Marvel movie. No pressure, Shane Black.
But if you caught the trailer that released a few weeks back you’ll know what we’ve seen looks not only promising, but freakin’ amazing! Here’s another reason to be excited: recently during a talk in São Paulo, Brazil, Marvel Entertainment International President Simon Philips may have let it slip that Pepper Potts (Gwyneth Paltrow) would indeed be getting her own suit of armor!
CBM picked up on the story originally reported by Brazilian entertainment site, Omelete. Unfortunately, that story is gone having been replaced with this statement, “information removed at the request of Disney.” Hmm, does that make it even more likely? Possibly. Here’s what CBM was able to grab before the removal,
A transcription of the spoilerific report, via Protocida, reveals that 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.
At this year’s Comic-Con Favreau and Paltrow had mentioned getting Potts into some armor was something they always wanted to do, and even Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige said, “Everyone at this table thinks it would be the coolest thing in the world to see Pepper get in the suit at some point.” Have they made it happen? Will we see Rescue, the name of Pepper’s suited persona, appear in Iron Man 3? I don’t know about you guys but it’s something I really, really want to see. Even for a moment.
And speaking of things we’ll see, as filming for Iron Man 3 wrapped in North Carolina there was a Star News report that included a tiny bit of information about The Mandarin (Ben Kingsley) and his Ten Rings terrorist group’s plot.
This could be more spoilery than Paltrow possibly suiting up. Proceed with caution.
ComicBookMovie.com posted the picture above with a short article pondering the question:
Could Pepper Potts don the Iron-Man Rescue armour in IronMan III?
Both Kevin Feige (Marvel Comics Big-shot) and Jon Favreau (IronMan Director and Happy Hogan) have in the past commented on the possibility of Gwyneth Paltrow donning the ‘Rescue’ armor in one of Marvel’s Iron Man films.
“Everyone at this table thinks it would be the coolest thing in the world to see Pepper get in the suit at some point.”
“We almost did it a few times, we talked about it a lot. I think we all share your enthusiasm for that, and we all want to see Gwyneth kick some ass.”
This NerdBastard could see this happening, but still thinks it’s just fan-boy fantasy for now. Are fans ready for Tony to be saved by Pepper? Perhaps the powers that be might make the Rescue armour part of some additional bonus DVD shorts to add to the IronMan mythos.
