The release of Iron Man 3 is fast approaching, and with that comes its stars doing their contractually required press junkets. And with that comes spoilers. Thank you, Gwyneth Paltrow‘s children, for pushing your mom in the direction of confirming a rather good one.
Unmarked spoilers under the cut, so proceed at your own risk.
Said Paltrow in an unnamed interview (but it was sent as part of a group of interviews by Marvel Studios to a bunch of different news outlets, among them the quite reliable SuperHeroHype, so it seems legit):
“I didn’t mind wearing the suit at all. I thought it was light and perfectly comfortable and my children thought I was extremely cool. They were here on a day where I was in it, so they were trying it on and when my son saw me in the suit, he had the biggest eyes, so it was definitely worth it.”
So. Pepper Potts definitely suits up, then. No more “she miiiight suit up” or “this leaked piece of merch shows her suiting up, but…” It’s confirmed, from the mouth of Paltrow herself. Bada-bing. Stick a fork in it, it’s done.
We don’t know at this point whether Pepper will assume her superhero alter-ego Rescue like she does in the comics. Even if she doesn’t, Iron Man 3 could always be setting that plotline up for later Marvel movies.
But whatever. I’m getting ahead of myself here. Pepper suiting up to save Tony’s behind in Iron Man 3 is good enough for me.
(And how cool is that that Paltrow’s kids got to see her in a super suit, by the way?)
