Guy Pearce, Jessica Chastain Cast In Iron Man 3

I've waxed slightly on my relative apathy towards Guy Pearce before. I've got nothing against the guy, he just hasn't impressed me in the past. And perhaps he's seeking to get in my good graces (because people want to be,liked by me), by appearing on Craig Ferguson a couple weeks past, and having a go at Canberra, Australia, and being cast as yet another villain in the soon to start filming Iron Man 3. He'll join Ben Kingsley in the Shane Black adaptation of Warren Ellis’ Extremis run on the comics, a run that the film series has already borrowed from for it's modern retelling of Tony Stark.

Pearce is, I'm told by the internet, set to play geneticist Aldrich Killian, who is responsible for developing and unleashing a nanotech version of the super solider serum, turned virus. Jessica Chastain, who appeared in The Help and Tree of Life, will more then likely be playing Maya Hansen, one of the scientists working on the project and a love interest for Tony. The implication being that people will become infected with the virus, turning them into Iron Men/Hulk crazies. Considering that the first movie saw Tony wear the armour, and the second saw Rhody, what do you think the chances are of Pepper taking on her comics 'Rescue' persona in the third film? Would anyone want that, Gwyneth Paltrow in a mecha suit?
