No Gwyneth Paltrow for ‘The Avengers’

Actress reveals 'Iron Man''s Pepper Potts will not be appearing

Gwyneth Paltrow has said she won’t be appearing in Marvel Pictures superheroes mash-up The Avengers.

Paltrow played Iron Man love interest Pepper Potts in both the 2008 and 2010 movies. But she has said that nobody has approached her regarding an appearance in Joss Whedon‘s forthcoming comic adaptation, which pairs up many characters from the Marvel Universe.

Paltrow told Reelzchannel.com: “No Pepper. I think it’s a ‘For sure’. I think they’re starting shooting soon. They probably would have asked me by now.”

Previously Whedon promised that Scarlett Johansson‘s character Black Widow wouldn’t be the only ‘powerful’ female featuring in The Avengers. There’s no word as yet who else he plans to have in the film.
