For Tony Stark’s big assembly with The Avengers last year, Robert Downey Jr. revealed he insisted on having actress Gwyneth Paltrow reprise her Iron Man role as well. “I was like, ‘You can’t just pretend that I got in a fight with Rhodey and Pepper’s out of town,’” Downey Jr. said during an Iron Man 3 press event. “They said, ‘You can’t have both of them,’ so I said, ‘All right, I need Pepper.’” Now withIron Man 3 fleshing out Tony and Pepper’s relationship, furthermore, “I thought, ‘OK, what do we want Gwyneth to be able to do this time?’. And how do we not have it so that she’s not just going (screamy voice), ‘Tony!’ And he’s not just going, ‘Where’s Pepper?’” 

Though much speculated and fabricated by LEGO tie-in sets, Downey Jr. confirmed that during the Malibu attack sequence, Pepper [SPOILER] dons the Iron Man suit. “That’s the other thing that I have been pushing for,” added Downey. “She’s in great shape. She’s really game. That was the other thing, too: You have all these genre movies and you have these capable women. And they’re kind of like, ‘Oh my God. Some action is happening. I better step away or get caught in something over here.’ And I was kind of like, ‘Really? Is that where we’re at in the 21st century?’”
