Marvel Universe member and Goop owner Gwyneth Paltrow understands the power of social media for all her endeavors. However, when updating her Instagram story from the set of Avengers: Infinity War, she may have leaked a bit of new info about the long-anticipated mega-movie.
After her Pepper Potts returned to the films in a surprise cameo near the end of this summer’s Spider-Man: Homecoming, it was a given that Paltrow would return for Infinity War. However, the nature of her role was pretty unknown, until she released a photo from her trailer that gave some people a few theories:
That image was quickly deleted from her account, but not before the folks at Cinemablend grabbed it for analysis. Spotting “a motion capture suit” on Paltrow’s legs, they speculated that “Pepper would be suiting up in an Iron Man suit during the film's runtime.”
Pepper’s worn the Stark armor before, escaping in Iron Man 3 before circumstances gave her super powers and the willingness to get physical. The indicators for the return of that sort of action all seem present, with some wondering if this could be the introduction of Potts’ superhero alter-ego Rescue, which she has used in the comics.
After the events of the most recent MCU films, it would make sense that Tony would design a “custom suit ... that shares much of the same powers and abilities” as his own for his partner, especially as they grow closer and Tony grows more and more focused on the security and protection of those around him.
What do you think? Will Rescue be joining in on the fight against Thanos?
