So this weekend David and I went and saw Iron Man 3. David will be discussing the movie in comparison to the comics later this week. What I want to look at is the character progression of Tony Stark and Pepper Potts from Iron Man to Iron Man 3 (including the Avengers). I just feel that Tony and Pepper as individuals and as a couple have had an interesting progression over the various movies and wanted to explore that.
Through the first Iron Man alone Tony Stark makes huge transformation in who he is. The root of who he is does not change, but he still changes. Pepper also progresses through the movies. Even the little bit we see in the Avengers definitely shows Pepper’s character moving forward. (Spoilers to follow for Iron Man, Iron Man 2, Avengers, and Iron Man 3).
