If the leaked image wasn’t enough to convince you, a new report adds fuel to a popular Avengers 4 theory. According to Deadline, Pepper Potts will have her own armor in the upcoming Marvel blockbuster.
Since it was teased in Iron Man 3, fans have been waiting for Gwyneth Paltrow’s character to suit up as Rescue, or some variation of her. When a toy line for the next Avengers film leaked, it appeared fans had gotten their wish as a figure was revealed of Pepper in armor. Then an image of Paltrow on set hit the web that gave us an even better look at what Tony Stark’s fiance would be donning in the movie.
The report doesn’t name Rescue as the alter-ego of Pepper but does make it clear we will see her fighting alongside the surviving heroes. “Next summer, Larson joins the action in the fourth Avengers film,” Deadline reported. “Also joining the fray: Pepper Potts (portrayed by Oscar winner Gwyneth Paltrow), who was introduced as a civilian in Iron Man a decade ago but is now getting armor of her own.”
Rescue made her debut in 2009, long after Pepper made her debut in 1963. So if you’re familiar with the comics, the decade-long wait for the character on the big screen was minuscule in comparison.
