Risque Potts in Iron Man II?

The british tabloid the Daily Mail reports that Gwyneth Paltrow will have a very risque scene in "Iron Man II" with her co-star Robert Downey Jr. Paltrow was seen relentlessly working out in order to get ready for a upcoming dream sequence scene she is shooting for the sequel to the ultra-popular 2008 comic book film. An anonymous source tells the tabloid, "Iron Man imagines Pepper in a dominatrix outfit." The source continued, "Gwyneth had to be filmed in a very revealing black leather corset complete with a bullwhip."

Now it is well known that tabloids are one of the worst sources of information, especially when they use the term "Anonymous Source," but when you look behind the lines there just might be some truth to this claim.

Number one, the lead villain in "Iron Man II" is Whiplash played by Mickey Rourke. The villain Whiplash uses two cybernetically controlled whips that could be converted into nunchakus or vaulting poles. These whips can be spun at an alamring rate, fast enough to deflect bullets being fired in his direction. Whiplash also weilds a necro-lash which can house extreme charges of energy, enough to even disable Iron Man's mark armor. So the bull-whip Pepper Pots is weilding in Stark's imagination could very well be directly tied to Rourke's character.

Number two, Black Widow dresses in a tight black latex outfit from head-to-toe. With Natasha Romanoff aka Black Widow played by Scarlett Johansson having a role in "Iron Man II" it is very likely that Ms. Potts leather corset is directly related to Stark's relationship with Black Widow.

If reports are true, not so sure I like the idea of Tony Stark having fascinations about Potts in a dominatrix outfit, but Favreau and Justin Theroux are two guys I trust will make a quality sequel no matter if Stark is fascinating or not.

What say you? Is this just another unbelievable tabloid story? Or will Pepper Potts dawn a dominatrix outfit in Iron Man II? Strikeback...
