Gwyneth Paltrow, known for her portrayal of Pepper Potts in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), has recently discussed the possibility of her return to the franchise. Paltrow, who starred in 2008’s Iron Man, is one of the oldest actors in the MCU, and her character survived the events of the Infinity Saga. However, since Iron Man’s funeral, Pepper Potts has not made any appearances in the MCU.
During a guest appearance on The Goop Podcast, Paltrow was asked by fellow MCU actress Scarlet Johansson about the possibility of her return to the franchise. While Paltrow did not completely rule out the idea, she expressed doubts about whether she would be returning anytime soon.
When asked about the possibility of her return, Paltrow responded, “I think so. I mean, I didn’t die so they can always ask me.” Johansson then commented, “I think you may come back at some point,” to which Paltrow replied, “Really? A 64-year-old Pepper Potts? How great.”
Paltrow’s comments have left fans wondering about the possibility of her return to the MCU. While nothing has been confirmed, her comments suggest that she is open to the idea of returning in the future. However, given her age and the current direction of the MCU, it remains to be seen whether she will make a comeback anytime soon.
Paltrow’s portrayal of Pepper Potts was a crucial part of the Iron Man franchise, and her character’s relationship with Tony Stark played a significant role in the events of the MCU. While her absence from the franchise has been felt by fans, many are excited about the possibility of her return.
