Are you using SCCM to push your updates?
If so your reports have one already under windows updates > deployment status

Here is a Powershell Function I found.
I have not tested it, but I think if you go through the script you will find useful information that might get you the results you are looking for.

Since you have SCCM, you can query the db for pending reboots.

see article:  http://www.systemcentercentral.com/sccm-collection-query-computers-with-pending-restart-or-other-update-enforcement-states/
