Although numerous Marvel fans still have no clue how next May’s Avengers: Infinity War will finish, it is certain that the story’s going to play into Avengers 4 the following year. The major part of Infinity War’s characters have already confirmed they would be back for Earth’s Mightiest Heroes’ fourth outing, but there will also be some new faces who weren’t part of the fight against Thanos. According to new pictures, it seems that Gwyneth Paltrow might be one of these faces, reprising Pepper Potts.
Gwyneth Paltrow was recently spotted and photographed while rehearsing with Mark Ruffalo and Robert Downey Jr. for a new movie in North Carolina. Although nothing has been confirmed yet, everything taken into consideration drives to the conclusion that she’s signed on to Avengers 4, given the fact that Downey and Ruffalo are among its numerous leads.
Pepper Potts has been involved in the MCU since its inception in 2008 with Iron Man, only to return in 2010 for Iron Man 2, in 2012 for The Avengers and 2013 for Iron Man 3. However, in the last years Gwyneth Paltrow has devoted more time to her lifestyle brand Goop, and thus she has neglected acting a bit. Consequently, Pepper was only mentioned in Avengers. Then she reprised her role for a surprise cameo towards the end of Spider-Man: Homecoming in which Tony finally proposed to her. Everyone is looking forward to Avengers 4 imagining it will be as explosive and thrilling as Infinity War is being advertised.
Nothing specific has been said about Avengers 4 yet, not even what its exact title will be. Avengers: Infinity War will show the Guardians of the Galaxy, Avengers and other superheroes uniting forces to stop the Black Order and Thanos on their way to obtain the six Infinity Stones.
As far as its release date is concerned, Avengers 4 will hit theaters on May 3, 2019.
