Pepper Potts Prays For 'Iron Man 3' In New Poster

The Playlist By Kevin Jagernauth | The Playlist February 25, 2013 at 10:20AM

We have to admit that if anyone had told us that Pepper Potts would serve as the emotional lynchpin in the "Iron Man" movies before they came out, we wouldn't have believed them. However, thanks to some great chemistry between Gwyneth Paltrow and Robert Downey Jr., and decent writing to go along with it, the pair serve as the best and most fleshed out relationship of any of the Marvel movies. And once again, in the series' third installment, their union is being put to the test.

We have to admit that if anyone had told us that Pepper Potts would serve as the emotional lynchpin in the "Iron Man" movies before they came out, we wouldn't have believed them. However, thanks to some great chemistry between Gwyneth Paltrow and Robert Downey Jr., and decent writing to go along with it, the pair serve as the best and most fleshed out relationship of any of the Marvel movies. And once again, in the series' third installment, their union is being put to the test.

A new character poster for "Iron Man 3" has arrived, featuring Potts holding a heavily damaged helmet belonging to the wise-cracking hero. Will Tony Stark be able to rise up and defeat Mandarin? What will he possibly lose in the process? We're sure everything will turn out just fine, but we perhaps have never seen Iron Man in this much peril before -- every picture from the movie so far seems to show him in the process of being defeated.

We'll soon see how he rises once again. "Iron Man 3" opens on May 3rd. [Empire]
