The upcoming film Avengers: Endgame will see the end of an era. With it being a culmination of 22 some-odd movies set in the same world, there are bound to be some tearful exits. Many longtime fans are expecting to see Tony Stark and Captain America officially bow out in some way, but as it turns out, they won’t be the only ones saying goodbye after the film.
That’s right. One Pepper Potts is on her way out of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, as actress Gwyneth Paltrow revealed to Variety.
“I mean, I’m a bit old to be in a suit and all that at this point,” the 46-year-old actress told the outlet. 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.”
So does this mean that she’ll NEVER show up again down the line? Well, never say never. Even though it sounds like she wants to be done in a large capacity with these movies, she sounds open to popping in for a cameo when necessary, á la Spider-Man: Homecoming. “I feel honored to be a part of something that people are so passionate about,” she said. “Of course, if they said, ‘Can you come back for a day?,’ I will always be there if they need me.”
As far as what this means for Pepper Potts herself as a character, no one can say. From everything we know, it does seem like she’ll be donning the Rescue army and playing a pretty hands-on role in Endgame, which is actually a nice change of pace, since she hasn’t done so since Iron Man 3.
