Because of his Extremis-based powers there is a definite possibility that Killian survived. Prior to his being blown up by Pepper, we saw him regenerate after Tony encased him in the Mark 42 armor and destroyed it. Before that, Pepper had survived being dropped 200 feet into a burning dock. Savin had healed after being caught in Taggert's fatal explosion as well as from wounds he received while fighting Tony in Tennessee. Therefore there is no reason why Killian's survival would be absolutely out of the question, given his powers. Also, Kevin Feige stated that we will see Extremis in other films, which may or may not involve Killian's resurrection.

It’s something that’s easy to take for granted, growing up in the United States as a white male, that my cinematic heroes look like me...It’s something that over the course of these ten years, having a certain amount of power over what type of movies are made and what type of actors we hire, I want everybody to have that feeling. We don’t take it for granted that people want to see themselves reflected in our heroes and our characters.
