Gwyneth Paltrow Exiting MCU Following ‘Avengers: Endgame’

While Gwyneth Paltrow has been a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, her role has been minor. Being a part of a massive franchise is still something she’s still proud of today. Unfortunately, her time as Pepper Potts is coming to an end.

Ending This Chapter

In an interview with Vanity Fair, Paltrow stated that she’s done playing the character after Avengers: Endgame. “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 friends 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 said.

Paltrow first appeared as Potts in 2008’s Iron Man.

Coming Back For More?

Over the years, Paltrow has made small appearances here and there. Her most recent one was in 2018’s Infinity War. The actress won’t turn away from a possible cameo appearance in the future.

“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,” she told the publication.

To The Rescue

When it comes to her character’s portrayal in the MCU, many people have been a bit disappointed. Following Iron Man 3, Potts’ placement in the overall story was greatly diminished. With Endgame coming out, there have been rumors of her finally becoming Rescue. In the comics, Potts gains her own armor from Iron Man. Under the name Rescue, Potts has found herself battling Madame Masque and Techno Golem. With Tony Stark lost in space in the Endgame trailer, she might have to don the suit.

While Paltrow mentions she’s “a bit old to be in a suit,” there’s a good chance she’s tricking fans. To truly find out Potts’ fate, fans will have to wait until April 26 when Endgame arrives.
