Marvel filmmakers discussed Paltrow's character Pepper Potts during their 60-minute panel at Comic-Con at the weekend, and hinted that they would like to see her get her own mechanical fighting suit.
The Invincible Iron Man story arc in the comic series saw Potts being given her own suit specially designed for her. She went on to call herself Rescue while wearing it.
"Everyone at this table thinks it would be the coolest thing in the world to see Pepper get in the suit at some point," said Kevin Feige of Marvel.
Director of the first two Iron Man films and co-star of all three Jon Favreau added: "We almost did it a few times; we talked about it a lot. I think we all share your enthusiasm for that, and we all want to see Gwyneth kick a little ass."
Iron Man 3 is currently in production, but it is currently not known if Paltrow will suit up in the film or in a future project.
Robert Downey Jr recently stated that he isn't sure where the franchise will go after the upcoming third instalment.
Iron Man 3 will open at cinemas on May 3, 2013.
