Re: Official rate & review IRON MAN 3 thread! - Part 3
Watching the movie for a second time, it almost seems as if the return of Pepper (and Killan) was tacked on afterwards. The final montage doesn't include Pepper at all, except for a short clip of Tony putting a necklace on her.
The scene where the Iron Man helmet rolls towards Tony and he sees that it's empty and breathes a sigh of relief feels like the end of the battle. I wonder if the initial plan was to kill Pepper off, but the Powers That Be intervened?
Unlikely, maybe, but it was just something that struck me during my second viewing.
