    Default Pepper Potts Gets Her Own Iron Man 3 Spoiler, Plus More New Details

    Marvel's president of worldwide licensing, Simon Philips, this week attended a presentation in S?o Paulo and spilled a few new things about the upcoming Iron Man 3. One detail is, for now at least, probably best labelled as a spoiler - so we'll come to that in a minute or two.

    First, however, there's this interesting, but relatively trivial, tidbit about Tony Stark's collection of armour.

    According to Omelete, who attended the presentation, Tony has a collection of "at least" sixteen new armours tucked away in underground storage. Many of them will have 'new' designs recognisable to fans of the comics.

    At some point in the story, and facilitated by the Extremis tech, Stark will get to mix and match bits of armour, thereby making a "custom configuration" - an arm from here, a helmet from there. We don't know why he'd do that, but I might speculate it has something to do with him just picking up the pieces and scrambling to put things together out of wreckage. That would be bang-on theme, anyhow.

    This will lead to mix-and-match toys, I'm sure, hence licensing man Philips' bringing it up as part of his presentation.

    And so we come to the Pepper Potts spoiler.



    Don't worry, she's not going to die. Or... if she does, we don't know so just yet. This spoiler points in the opposite direction.

    According to presentation, Pepper is going to get her own armour. In the comics, this saw her adopting the alias Rescue, though that's just the sort of thing that gets pruned away in these Marvel movie adaptations. Codename or not, Pepper's getting the suit.



    Disney Licensing would of course need to mention this because a girl action figure in a suit of power armour is a notable addition to their toy lines.

    Iron Man 3 will be along in late April here in the UK and on May 3rd in the US. Will we be seeing Pepper in her Rescue armour when the new trailers roll around? Or will be waiting to get our first glimpse of the suit's look in the toy designs?

    Cue the use of "Rescue Me" by Fontella Bass in the soundtrack.

    The use of a mix and match selection of different armour parts by Tony sounds cool. Perhaps it'll be required to counteract the different powers in the Mandarin's rings if the movie remains faithful to the comics. I do hope the rings aren't just ordinary jewelery that merely symbolise the Mandarin's criminal network.

    Anyone who watched the 2nd season of IRON MAN:ARMORED ADVENTURES could see this happening in the 3rd IM movie. The 2nd half of that 2nd season pretty much did the whole Extremis storyline and gave Pepper her Rescue armor.

    Better question: will we get a LEGO Pepper Potts?

    The ZebraHead "Rescue Me" has a better beat to choreograph armor fights.

    Well, to be honest, that may be the only song of theirs I know...but it's a really good song!

    Sounds good to be honest! Looking forward to see Pepper in a set of badass armor (hoping they don't have big metal boobs!).
