Gwyneth Paltrow's 'Iron Man 3' character Pepper Potts is going to be 'the one thing that matters most' to Tony, says Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige, 'and that actually is what the entire movie’s about.' Gwyneth Paltrow has also starred in 'Country Strong' and 'Contagion.'
To say that Iron Man 3 will have plenty of cooks in the kitchen is an understatement. We get a darker, more serious Tony Stark recovering from a near-death experience; a mysterious villain bent on destroying the billionaire hero; and a bigger role for the Iron Patriot (Don Cheadle). Oh, and a few dozen suits of armor.
That many side characters might usually relegate the relatively well-established relationship between Tony Stark and Pepper Potts (Gwyneth Paltrow) to comedic relief or classic ‘damsel in distress’ plot devices. But according to Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige, Pepper won’t be getting less screen time at all; in many ways, Pepper Potts is who Iron Man 3 is all about.
