SDCC 2012 Pannel about Pepperony:
Love Is In the Air: ”The romance is definitely a part of this. Obviously, we’ve got Gwyneth [Paltrow] coming back,” Black reaffirmed when asked about Tony’s personal life in this go. “Time has passed and, in The Avengers, Gwyneth and Tony are together, doing great, living together.”
And Downey seems to be down for the lovey-dovey stuff too: “There’s never been a movie like this, where your lead guy is in a relationship, with someone to go home to. Who’s kind of like Gwyneth Paltrow, telling him what to do.”
It seems Rescue is NOT HAPPENING :( in IM3 maybe in the future…
Kevin Feige expressed interest in bringing Rescue (the armoured persona of Pepper Potts, created by Matt Fraction) to the big screen, stating that, “Everyone at this table thinks it would be the coolest thing in the world to see Pepper in a suit.”
In the Footage they showed:
The final big set piece was when a bunch of helicopters with rocket launchers come and destroy Tony’s giant house, causing it to tumble into the sea. Tony gets into the Iron Man armor in time, but Pepper Potts is also caught in the disaster. And Tony watches all his spare Iron Man suits blowing up one by one. Tony is flung out into the water and carried down by the undertow. Over this, the voice of the Mandarin says, “Some people call me a terrorist. I consider myself a teacher. Lesson number one: Heroes. There is no such thing. As you cry out for mercy, you will be silenced.”
There were also quick snippets of other stuff. Tony sitting on the couch in his Iron Man armor, as Pepper Potts comes into his house, and she kisses him and holds him while he’s still wearing the armor. We also see Guy Pearce, playing Aldrich Killian, and he too is kissing Pepper Potts. Also, we glimpse Maya Hansen (Rebecca Hall), looking sad. Also, we see War Machine’s brand new red-white-and-blue armor.
There’s a chain, going onto a swordhilt. And a group of government officials looking concerned as they witness some carnage taking place, at the hands of that terrorist. And Pepper Potts holding a ruined Iron Man helmet in the rubble.
Okay so… Pepper will be injured… Oh God I hate to be right T_T And there’s “something” going on with Killian too ¬¬ although there’s room for pepperony romance too.
I’m so thrilled… I want to see this movie badly… less than a year of wait, people… xD
