ironman 3 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.

Kevin Feige:

“Everyone at this table thinks it would be the coolest thing in the world to see Pepper get in the suit at some point.”

Jon Favreau:

“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.

Let us know what you think in the comments section below.

Shane Black and producers of Ironman III wasted little time when first choice Jessica Chastain couldn’t resolve scheduling conflicts to accept the role of Maya Hansen, creator of the Extremis Enhancile.

Extremis Enhancile is, in short, a super-soldier solution, a bio-electronics package fitted into a few billion graphic nanotubes and suspended in a carrier fluid.

Variety is reporting that Rebecca Hall is now the front runner to replace Chastain in the female lead in the first post-Avengers movie, Iron Man III. Hall is best known for her leading role in Ben Affleck’s The Town. After the huge success of The Avengers, theater goers are certain to turn out in droves for this next chapter in the Marvel saga,  and although she’s a known commodity in Hollywood, this could certainly be Hall’s break out role.

Starring Robert Downey Jr., Don Cheadle, Gwyneth Paltrow, Guy Pearce and Ben Kingsley, Iron Man 3 will begin production in North Carolina this month leading toward a May 3, 2013 release date.
