Fans are eagerly awaiting any kind of details about Avengers 4, the sure-to-be climactic finish to this iteration of the MCU. Very little is known about the movie at the moment, but we assume it won’t feature quite as many characters as Infinity War when it begins. There are some significant characters whose fates were left unconfirmed at the end of the movie, but with reshoots for Avengers 4 underway, we now know that Pepper Potts will be involved in the film– thanks to a post shared by Gwyneth Paltrow.
Thanos wiped out half of the universe in Avengers: Infinity War, but it wasn’t exactly clear which half kicked the bucket. Lots of essential characters evaporated right there on the big screen, but there are still a few whose fate are unknown. Gwyneth Paltrow’s Pepper Potts, who has been with the MCU since the very beginning, was one of those missing characters. It’s especially notable because Pepper appeared at the beginning of the movie, and plays an integral part in Tony Stark’s story. Well, it looks like that story will continue in some form because Paltrow is filming Avengers 4 reshoots with Robert Downey Jr.
Gwyneth Paltrow shared a behind-the-scenes photo of herself with Robert Downey Jr. on Instagram, writing “Lunchtime #pepperony.” That’s a pretty clever hashtag, but the real news is that Avengers 4 involves Pepper in some way. As to the specifics of the role, we’ve got a few ideas.
There are a few different ways to read Pepper’s involvement. One is that she survived The Snap and is in a couple of scenes in Avengers 4, dealing with the fallout of half the universe being wiped out. Paltrow has previously teased that there’s a time skip between the two Avengers movies, and that Pepper and Tony will have a child. Another option is that Pepper didn’t survive, and that these Avengers 4 scenes are flashbacks. There’s also the possibility that Pepper’s scenes are at the end of the movie, assuming that everyone who was snapped is brought back to life.
Whatever the case may be, Pepper’s involvement is just another of the many, many reasons to be excited for Avengers 4. There are plenty of theories about the movie right now, but Marvel has been keeping this one under tight wraps. To learn more about the film here’s everything that we know so far. There are bound to be a ton of reveals about Avengers 4, so be sure to stick with CinemaBlend, and we’ll keep you updated with new information as soon as it becomes available. We’ve still got several months to go as Avengers 4 doesn’t arrive in theaters until May 3, 2019.
