Since the devastating release of Avengers: Infinity War, the Marvel Cinematic Universe has been in a fascinating state of flux. Marvel Studios had been keeping its secrets, with the after affects of Thanos' finger snap of death (aka The Decimation) a total mystery. The first brief trailer for Avengers: Endgame may have arrived, but the film's actual contents are unknown by the public.
There are plenty of rumors swirling around about Endgame, one of which revolving around Gwyneth Paltrow's Pepper Potts. The OG girl of the MCU has been rumored to be gearing up in her own Iron Man armor, after the actress revealed a few photos when working on the upcoming blockbuster's set. Now a possible leak of upcoming action figures may have revealed what the suit will look like. That is, except for the helmet.
While these images are a bit bizarre (where are their heads?), you can see Pepper's possible armor on the middle left. It seemingly matches up with what we've seen from Gwyneth's social media, so it should be fascinating to see how things shake up as Endgame slowly approaches.
This new image comes to us from Twitter. While not confirmed by Marvel Studios, this possible suit reveal does track, given what we've gathered about Pepper Potts' upcoming Endgame role over the past year or two. While not quite as guilty of spoilers as Mark Ruffalo and Tom Holland, Gwyneth Paltrow has been known to be chatty about her role in the MCU. Even if she's never seen an Avengers movie.
In addition to posting photos wearing motion capture suits from the the set of Avengers: Endgame, Paltrow has also been a bit chatty about Pepper's mysterious fate in the next blockbuster. For instance, she mentioned months ago that she and Tony had a kid. And since they were child-less in Infinity War, this seemingly gives away her character's fate, and could tease a time jump for Endgame.
Marvel fans have been waiting to see Pepper Potts suit up and kick ass in the MCU since her character debuted back in 2007's Iron Man. In the comics, Pepper Potts has used her own suit a number of times, taking on the superheroic mantle of Rescue in the process. Rescue's armor has a variety of different abilities than Tony Stark's Iron Man suit. Rather than being equipped with destructive weaponry, her abilities are more defensive, including the heavy use of electromagnetic force fields.
It should be fascinating to see which rumors about Pepper Potts come to fruition, and how much she'd suited up throughout the course of Avengers: Endgame. Since Tony is stranded in space with Nebula, it might be the perfect time for Pepper to become Rescue, and save the love of her life.
Avengers: Endgame will arrive in theaters on April 26th, 2019. In the meantime, check out our 2019 release list to plan your trips to the movies in the New Year.
