    So, after a brief but, imo, important part in the Avengers, Pepper has shown she's here to stay. Not only that, but she seems to be pushing Tony to a good place, be it business-wise or personally.

    What would you like to see from Pepper or from Gwyneth this time?

    A newbie here.

    Should Pepper become Rescue in this movie? If this is RDJ's last IM movie, it would be kind of neat to have all of his closest friends in armor.

    IF there is a neat and believable way of doing so. :yay:

    ...and if RDJ leaves the IM post behind him, it would probably be wise to recast Pepper at the same time... because it would be awkward to have a different Tony yet the same Pepper.

    Definitely no Rescue and I highly doubt RDJ is going to walk away from the new biggest franchise on the planet one film in

    I'd like to see more short shorts, long legs and bare feet as in her Avengers appearance. She should just turn up to the office like that.

    I'd like to see her follow through with whatever promise she whispered in Tony's ear in Avengers.

    Hey Spuzz, I know you're new here, but you really don't need to pad your post count by resurrecting so many month-old threads in-a-row.

    Here here! I loved that touch in The Avengers. Mix up shots of Gwyneth in business suits with more casual attire when she's alone with RDJ. :woot:

    Personally the less I see of this version of Pepper the better.

    She does nothing other than moan and whine at Tony, Gwyneth isn't hot and always, for me, comes over very smug and cold.

    I would HATE to see Rescue as I feel we've had enough of people in there own version of the Iron Man suit.

    I know these films are aimed at kids/families but I'd have preferred more of a playboy Tony who is fun and not whipped by some dull looking woman who moans at him.

    I think they'll give her around the same amount of time she's had in the other IM movies if not a few minutes more since they are pretty much together now. No need to give her the Rescue armor though.

    Does anyone else get the feeling that Pepper dies or something? Like Gwyneth being evasive about being in Avengers 2?

    I think Gwen is just getting "Dunst Syndrome".She's tiring of the role,and looking forward to finishing her contract.

    It's not like she had a lot to do in IM2 or TA. Hopefully she'll get a meaty role in IM3, a la IM1.

    A shame that scene wasn't in the final cut. I loved how it appeared in the trailer - the way she casually threw the mask out of the plane.

    I'm glad it wasn't in the Movie. His whole navigation system is in that helmet. And with all those fireworks going off, how was he supposed to see and catch it in the first place?

    Definitely.
    I think she's ready to move on from this, as that interview shows; plus, Shane Black kills off the hero's girlfriend in practically every movie he's ever made. It's his motif, y'know

    That's fine with me because I want to see Bethany Cabe. However, he could just have Pepper marry Happy as in the comics instead.

    It doesn't matter if Paltrow/Pepper leaves as Tony Stark has had plenty of other love intrests in the comics.

    Like hell it doesn't matter. The movies so far have done a damn good job selling Tony/Pepper; if they kill Pepper off, the audience is *not* going to be casually cheering Tony to pick up a younger model.

    As for marrying Pepper to Happy, how could you believe such an idea is even vaguely credible based on the actual movies? Yes, it happened in the comics, but that's *entirely irrelevant* to whether its a credible event in the movies.

    Well then, she's just going to have to wear less clothing than in the Avengers.

    Paltrow herself has said that fans haven't warmly received her character, even though she's done a damn fine job at her work. I'm pretty positive that most audiences would prefer Tony to be his usual playboy self than a one-woman man. The movies have done a better job at selling *that* aspect of his personality than the Tony-Pepper relationship. RDJ is who the audiences are coming to see, not Gwyneth.

    Most people really really like the Tony/Pepper relationship. Not certain fanboys who hate the female leads in all of these films, of course, or the tumblr fangirls who just want to see Steve and Tony get it on. But for the casual moviegoer, that relationship is one of the major reasons they like the flicks.
