Kevin Feige says Pepper Potts is at the heart of Iron Man 3

“She’s the one thing that matters most”

Iron Man 3 may boast a pair of dastardly villains in the form of Guy Pearce and Ben Kingsley, but according to Kevin Feige, the most significant player in the third film will be love interest Pepper Potts.

Potts has played something of a supporting role in the last two films, but according to Feige, she’ll be far more at the heart of things third time out.

“The love triangle in this movie is really between Tony, Pepper and the suits,” explains Feige. “Tony, Pepper and his obsession with those suits, and the obsession with technology. And, it’s sort of unique for a big superhero summer blockbuster franchise to have those kind of layers.

“Yes, there’s a bad guy,” he continues. “Yes, the stakes are very, very high - the President of the United States is in danger. Air Force One is attacked. There are big stakes to this movie.

“But the real stakes are, is Tony going to be able to set aside the obsession to spend all day, every day in that workshop, tinkering with the suits in order to focus on, as he says in the trailer, the one thing that matters most - Pepper. And that actually is what the entire movie’s about.”

Directed by Shane Black and co-starring Robert Downey Jr., Gwyneth Paltrow and Don Cheadle, Iron Man 3 will open in the UK on 25 April 2013.

      In the previous Iron Man films I was never sold on the Potts character. Couldnt care less of what happens to her. The same went for MJ in Spiderman. Granted me not liking either actress doesnt help the matter. Surely these characters are better developed in the comics or at least more likable.

      I thought Rebecca Hall's character was suppose to be an old flame of Tony's ?

      This means dreadful acting is at the heart of Iron Man 3. Gwyneth Paltrow is unbearably wooden in these movies.
