It seems as though Gwyneth Paltrow may be reprising her role as Pepper Potts, as exclusive pictures shared from Mail Online show her rehearsing for Avengers 4. We do not yet know if Gwyneth will return in Avengers: Infinity War or Avengers 4, but she did not rule out the possibility of reprising her role. It seems as though she was reading through a short scene from the screenplay with co-stars Robert Downey Jr. and Mark Ruffalo, who star as Tony Stark and Bruce Banner (The Hulk) respectively.
Pepper featured in a Spider-Man: Homecoming scene alongside Tony Stark. During the scene, Happy gives Tony a ring suggesting that he has the ring for a few years. In Iron Man 3, their relationship was tested and she was noticeably absent in Avengers: Age of Ultron. However, the cameo appearance in Spider-Man: Homecoming may suggest her relationship with Tony will resume and perhaps they will eventually get married.
Pepper became the voice of sanity in the Iron Man films and showed herself to be a strong business woman. Her scenes have never been incredibly long in the superhero epics. However, Gwyneth Paltrow has always made an impression on fans, often with humorous one liners and palpable chemistry with RDJ. There’s no telling what her role could be in the upcoming films, but she is definitely sure to make an impact, no matter the size.
Avengers: Infinity War began filming at Pinewood Studios in Atlanta. The film will include the Guardians of the Galaxy, Spider-Man (Tom Holland) and Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman). There has been much speculation about the mortality of Tony Stark in Infinity War. Many fans believe his time could be up in the upcoming blockbuster. However, these rehearsal pictures reveal Robert will reprise his role. There was also a casting sheet that listed his name alongside Tom Holland.
Avengers: Infinity War releases on May 4, 2018.
