While filming Avengers 4, Gwyneth Paltrow has revealed an intriguing hint as to what could be in store for Pepper Potts.
Avengers 4 filming is currently well underway, with a huge amount of actors reprising their roles in what promises to be an epic conclusion to phase three of the MCU. One of those returning is Gwyneth Paltrow, playing Pepper Potts, and she may just have revealed a little more than Marvel would have liked whilst on her Instagram account between takes.
Paltrow’s character, Pepper Potts, had been absent from the MCU for some time before her return in Spider-man: Homecoming, as her and Tony had taken a break due to his inability to spend less time as Iron Man. Tony was definitely a broken man in Civil War without Pepper, so it was nice to see the two back together at the end of Homecoming.
Jon Favreau’s fan favourite Happy Hogan will also be appearing in Avengers 4, so it seems as though there will be somewhat of a Tony sub-plot running through the movie. Time will tell if that’s a good thing for the ‘genius, billionaire, playboy philanthropist’, or whether it’s more of a clue that Iron Man’s time could be up as an Avenger after eleven eventful years.
It wasn’t clear that Paltrow would be returning for Avengers 4 until she took to her Instagram account to share stories from the set. At first the posts seem relatively innocent, however in one of the images shared in between filming, it’s clear that the actress is wearing a spotted mocap suit.
We’ve seen Potts don the Iron Man armour previously in the third movie of that franchise, however based on the image Paltrow shared it looks a pretty certain bet that the character will once again find herself suiting up. The question is why? Perhaps for protection, or maybe Tony has built Potts her very own suit this time, so she can join the fight against Thanos and his infinity gauntlet?
We’ll have to wait until Avengers 4 is released in 2019 to see, but it definitely seems as though Miss Potts will be having more than 12% of a moment in the conclusion to phase 3.
