Thanks to some toy leaks, it has been speculated that Avengers 4 will have Pepper Potts suiting up alongside Iron Man in her own RESCUE armor. Now a photo of Gwyneth Paltrow has leaked online, and it seemingly confirms everyone’s guess.
Check her out:
Gwyneth Paltrow reveals that she will be suited up in #Avengers4 as "Rescue", dawning the famous armor from the comics.
It will be interesting if they utilize her "extremis" powers with this new suit, unless they are just going to keep ignoring that ever happened… pic.twitter.com/wRVRxBBS3m

It’s worth noting that the photo has been taken down from multiple sources, but that hasn’t stopped people from saving it and spreading it around online.
Last week, a photo of a toy lineup had been leaked, and it had a figure of Iron Man next to another armored character that was purple and had the figure of a woman. The guess was that it was RESCUE, and thanks to this set photo, it seems that everyone was right.
Looking closely at the photo, though, it looks like the suit is not to much a full suit of armor; the soft goods on Paltrow’s arm could suggest that it’s actually just a regular jumpsuit but with added armor parts. This is just my guess, but maybe the costume was just made that way for the comfort of the actress wearing it. They’ll just add the actual armor during post.
While Pepper is considered more of a side character, it would be interesting to see her actually suit up and join the fight. It was already teased back in Iron Man 3 that she could kick some ass herself, and now we actually get to see more of that onscreen with Avengers 4.
