In a new interview, Black says in an early draft of the script the main villain was female, but Marvel executives told him he had to change it.
As Hot Toys slowly works its way through the Iron Man universe, it was inevitable that after producing action figures for almost every last armored suit Tony Stark has built, it would eventually get around to turning characters like Gwyneth Paltrow’s Pepper Potts into sixth-scale collectibles.
My word, Figma do love their Iron Man variants, don't they? Next up is the turn of the blinged up Mk XXI 'Midas' suit, the sort of ostentatious ridiculous you can only expect from someone like Tony Stark. But ostentatiousness aside, it makes for a pretty figure!

The third Iron Man could have been one of two movies. It could have gone on a light and self-referential victory lap of the Ocean’s Thirteen variety.
