Pepper Potts gets super-heroic
As seen in the trailers, Pepper (Gwyneth Paltrow) takes a far more active role this time around, even going so far as to don the Iron Man armor. According to Robert Downey Jr., the idea to get the character more involved in the action had been gestating for awhile: "You know, I was always saying, 'God, I just want to see Pepper in the suit. I want to see her experience with what Tony gets from it."
Added Paltrow: "One of the most thrilling parts of, you know, having gone all over the place in talking about this movie is that people really love to see Pepper in the suit and like kicking ass. And so, I would come back. You know, in the comic she becomes Rescue, her own person."
