Iron Man 3′s Rebecca Hall Says To Expect A “Refreshing” Female Dynamic Between Pepper & Maya


“The thing I really like about this storyline is that everyone assumes, ‘Oh, this is going to be some sort of love triangle, and it’s going to be some massive cat fight between Pepper and Maya,’ and it was never that on the page. Instead, they did what the Iron Man franchise has nearly always done, which is sort of subvert expectations and stereotypes and actually made it about two very smart women who understand this rather eccentric figure, Tony Stark. There is a sort of bonding that happens between them because of that, and they are very funny about it. It’s not at all what you expect, which I think is much more true to life and was refreshing, frankly.”Iron Man 3′s Rebecca Hall responding to a question from Marvel.com on how her character Maya’s past with Tony Stark affects her relationship with Pepper Potts.

    And yet they’re still playing supporting roles to a leading man.

    Less about this movie, and more about that there needs to be more movies (especially Marvel movies) with ladies as the title character.

    But in this case
    I’m ok with Iron Man, being the focus of the Iron Man movie. :P

    The movie is called Iron Man 3, why would they play the leading role?

    This.

    Oh yeah, I would like more movies with female leads, but LEAVE IRON MAN ALONE.
