Avengers: Endgame will likely be the last time we see Pepper Potts (Gwyneth Paltrow) in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, according to Variety. When last we saw Pepper, she and Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) were discussing their upcoming wedding, when Tony had to rush off to save the world.
In an interview for Variety‘s cover story, Paltrow said that she is retiring the character of Pepper Potts after Avengers: Endgame. She stated, “I mean, I’m a bit old to be in a suit and all that at this point… I feel very lucky that I did it, because I actually got talked into it. I was friend with [Iron Man director] Jon Favreau. It was such a wonderful experience making the first ‘Iron Man’ and then to watch how important it has become to fans.”
She reportedly left open the possibility of a cameo or flashback, saying, “I feel honored to be a part of something that people are so passionate about… Of course, if they said, ‘Can you come back for a day?,’ I will always be there if they need me.”
Avengers: Endgame opens in theaters on April 26, 2019. You can view all the previously-posted updates about the film by clicking here.
