Iron Man Gets a Gal
One of my all-time favorites, Gwyneth Paltrow, has been tapped to play Virginia "Pepper" Potts, the personal assistant to Iron Man's alter-ego, billionaire Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.), in next year’s Iron Man.
Production on the Jon Favreau-directed project, which will co-star Terrence Howard, is scheduled to begin in March.
Now, I don’t know if the role will require that Paltrow be involved in any heroics or if she will play the damsel in distress, but just so you know, the actress can pull off both (sometimes at the same time) quite well.
See the criminally underrated Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow if you don’t believe me.
Well, what are you waiting for?
