That will be a question which must be addressed if Pepper does not get her own armor.

Oh I dunno. Forty years of comic history and two movies without people asking that? Possibly that has something to do with it.

There's quite a few names on that list I'd be interested in seeing in an Avengers sequel or a solo movie.

I agree. Lets not go changing a character's role needlessly when they're doing just fine.
