So it’s official! AVENGERS 4, and maybe Infinity War, as revealed in set photos with Robert Downey Jr and Jon Favreau we will be seeing Gwyneth Paltrow as Iron Man’s Pepper Potts. I know she is the perfect cocktail of cute and sexy, Filming on next year’s Avenger Infinity War may have already wrapped, but the shoot on 2019’s Avengers 4 has already begun.
Now yet another Marvel regular has been confirmed, seeing a return appearance in the form of Paltrow’s Pepper Potts. CEO of Stark Industries and Tony Stark’s only true love, Pepper was last seen at the end of Spider-Man: Homecoming. [SPOILER IF YOU HAVE NOT YET WATCHED HOMECOMING]
Let’s take a look at the confirmations, her confirmation banged with an Avengers 4 set snap of her, Downey Jr and Favreau on the latter’s Twitter page.
Favreau headed the pic: “Infinity Trinity #infinitywar”
The actor/director is also reprising his role as Stark’s butler with some serious gun skills, Happy Hogan, having let news of his return slip on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert(Love that show).
In the photos, Paltrow stands alongside Avengers stars Robert Downey Jr. (Tony Stark) and Mark Ruffalo (Bruce Banner/The Hulk), as well as Iron Man alum Jon Favreau (Happy Hogan). Paltrow, who had her debut as Tony Stark’s love interest in the first Iron Man film, has not yet been officially confirmed for Avengers 4, but the photos appear to show that she will indeed be involved.
Directors Joe and Anthony Russo have confirmed that there will be character deaths in Avengers Infinity War and Avengers 4, so will all three be left unscathed by the end or not?
Earlier this week set photos revealed a Tokyo, Japan setting, where it’s believed that Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow will be seen in the movie.
Paltrow’s Pepper Potts was conspicuously absent from Avengers: Age of Ultron, despite the fact that she was romantically involved with Tony Stark. Her absence was explained away in Captain America: Civil War, where Tony revealed that they were taking a break, Not to mention Tony had a breakdown just because of her absence. Because of this, many speculated that Paltrow would not re-up her contract with Marvel Studios. Perhaps, Paltrow made her Marvel Cinematic Universe return in Spider-Man: Homecoming, where she and Tony intended to throw a news conference about the Avengers’ latest recruit before Peter Parker voluntarily backed down.
In Spider-Man: Homecoming, Pepper’s relationship with Tony seemed to take a turn for the serious when Tony revealed his intentions to propose. For those guys who haven’t yet watched Homecoming I won’t be letting out her answer to the big question here, but these set photos appear to confirm that Pepper does indeed say yes. In one of the set photos, Paltrow clearly wears a big engagement ring on her left hand. So is it Stark or…?
A teaser trailer for Infinity War is still being worked on but The Russo Brothers have confirmed it will arrive soon.
