Gwyneth Paltrow Confirms Pepper Potts for Iron Man 3, Avengers Cameo


While on the BBC’s “Something for the Weekend” show, Gwyneth Paltrow confirms that her Pepper Potts will return for Shane Black’s “Iron Man 3″, then goes on to mention that Potts will probably also have a cameo in Joss Whedon’s “The Avengers”, saying, “I’ll possibly be very briefly in The Avengers.”

Of course, she then quickly backtracked, adding, “Maybe, we’ll see.”

It makes sense for Potts to cameo in “The Avengers”. Her boyfriend Tony Stark aka Iron Man does have a pretty big role in the superhero team-up, and she is in charge of Stark Industries now, which according to the Marvel U., is a pretty big player in the world in terms of technology and, it appears, superheroic types.

Joss Whedon’s “The Avengers” is already shooting, and will star Chris Evans, Samuel L. Jackson, Chris Hemsworth, Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Mark Ruffalo, Clark Gregg, and Cobie Smulders.

The Avengers assemble May 4, 2012.

    A cameo in “Avengers” would work, but she HAS to be in IM3. I know RDJ said he may not be on for more after 3, which makes no snese cause i’m sure he’s lokced for “Avengers” sequels, but regardless, they need tokeep as much of this cast as possible as it started the Marvel Studios machine.

    Good news! I didn’t hear about RDJ leaving IM after the third film. That kinda sucks. Keeping on Downey Jr., Paltrow and Cheadle is a must to me. While Cheadle was the second actor to play Rhodes I think that he was the better of the two. I’m glad that she may also show up in the Avengers film. I’d love to see all of the supporting cast of IM, TIH, Thor and CATFA in there. Still no word on Cheadle coming in for Avengers or John Hurt as General Ross, Liv Tyler as Betty Ross or the other supporting cast of TIH. Hope that happens.

      Can’t have everyones full supporting cast, it’d be too busy and then what’s the point of having the solo movies. The solo movies should be where the characters supporting cast is, and “Avengers” should have its own supporting cast.

      Sent on the go.

        Maybe not. However, beings as though they are intertwining everything it makes sense to have certain characters show up. From what we assume, The Skrull will be the villains in the AVENGERS FILM. Having people like Selvig and Betty Ross tapped by SHIELD to try to figure out the scientific ramifications of the Skrull invasion. Also since this is the first time that The Hulk is back in the picture there should be a continuation of his story. That would definitely include the obsessed General “Thunderbolt” Ross, who would be at odds with Fury and SHIELD for taking ‘HIS’ property. There is also the jilted love interest to betty, Doc Sampson who could be trying to keep her as far away from Banner as possible. Not to mention the festering villain that is The Leader. We need to see what has come of him, right? Then there’s the return of Thor to earth. His first time back to Midgard since telling Jane that he’d return for her. We need to see that reunion don’t we? I’m not saying that each character needs there own storyline going on. Just a few glimpses and quick scenes that give us an update on these characters and situations.
