Re: How will Iron Man return in the Avengers 2?
At the end of the movie, he has Dr. Wu remove the Extremis technovirus from Pepper. "Then I thought, why stop there?" So he also has Dr. Wu remove the shrapnel and arc reactor from his heart, and make him a real human being again.
That doesn't stop him from being Iron Man. Far from it; and he says so: "I am Iron Man." He can still build suits, and they don't need to be internally powered by his heart or even an arc reactor. And he can *perfect* Extremis, because that's exactly what he did, virtually unknowingly, in a scribble on the back of his nametag at the NYE99 party. That's the thing that Maya Hansen discovered, and was coming to Tony for help with.
So the ending of IM3 sets up that he's no longer shackled by the physical limitations of his previous suits, and that he's able to fix Extremis to the point that it's no longer dangerous to its user. So again: it's natural to assume that will lead him to create the Extremis armor in the interim between IM3 and TA2.
