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.
