After the excitement of seeing the wild trailer for Iron Man 3 subsided, we haven't had a lot of news about the eagerly anticipated sequel coming out lately. Luckily, Marvel International exec Simon Philips has opened up about a few juicy plot points fans can expect when this one opens in 2013.

Apparently, Philips told the Brazilian entertainment site Omelete that the lovely Pepper Potts (Gwyneth Paltrow) will be donning her own armor this time around, confirming a rumor that'd been making the rounds for months.

Here's a recap of the report via Comic Book Movie:

"Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) will eventually have an underground Hall of Armors with at least 16 new armors, including a few classic designs from the comics. Simon Philips also revealed, or confirmed, that Virginia Pepper Potts (Gwyneth Paltrow) will indeed get in on the action, this time by donning her own suit of armor; similar to doing so with the 'Rescue' suit in the comic books."
After two films of pitching in to help save the world from the sidelines, we're glad to see Pepper will finally suit up and kick a little ass herself.

Philips also elaborated on a scene glimpsed in the trailer that found Tony Stark apparently strapped to a hospital bed, confirming that is the moment we should see the Extremis nanotech introduced.
