Fans of Pepper Potts rejoice! Gwyneth Paltrow has, more or less, been confirmed to appear in untitled “Avengers 4”.
Thanks to some paparazzi shots, the 44-year-old Oscar winner was spotted hanging out with her “Avengers” cast while rehearsing for the “Avengers: Infinity War” sequel. Robert Downey Jr. even took to his Instagram this morning (Wednesday, 23rd August) to upload a funny photo of him and his leading lady.
Following the release of “Iron Man 3” in 2013, Pepper Potts was nowhere to be found in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). She finally made her triumphant return to the MCU in this year’s “Spider-Man: Homecoming” alongside Happy Hogan (played by Jon Favreau). While it’s hard to pinpoint exactly where Paltrow’s character will fit into the overall storyline, we do know this – Pepper, Tony, and Happy will make it out of “Infinity War” alive.
This morning, Twitter user Best of Marvel also released a series of set photos showing Paltrow and Downey Jr. rehearsing a scene with Mark Ruffalo and Favreau. Taken in Fayetteville, North Carolina, the blonde beauty was dressed in a black tank top and white high-waisted slacks with strappy black heels. The “Iron Man” actor wore an olive green sweatshirt over a grey shirt while Ruffalo was dressed in a black v-neck shirt and pants.
