Gwyneth Paltrow Leaves Door Open for Possible Return to Marvel Cinematic Universe
Actress-turned-entrepreneur Gwyneth Paltrow has expressed her openness to the possibility of returning to the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) in the future. During a recent episode of her podcast with fellow Marvel co-star Scarlett Johansson, Paltrow joined in speculation on their potential involvement in the franchise.
Johansson confirmed that she was “done” with playing Natasha Romanoff, also known as Black Widow. However, Paltrow left her answer more open-ended, stating, “I think so! I mean, I didn’t die, so I guess they can always ask me to (come back).” Johansson suggested that Paltrow could return “at some point” to which she jokingly replied, “As 64-year-old Pepper Potts! How great.”
Paltrow first played the role of Potts, Tony Stark’s personal assistant turned love interest, in the first MCU film, “Iron Man,” released in 2008. She reprised the character in two more “Iron Man” films and the “Avengers” franchise, with her last appearance being in 2019’s “Avengers: Endgame,” where she said goodbye to Stark/Iron Man in the climactic scene. It remains to be seen whether Paltrow will return to the MCU, but fans will be interested to see if her character makes a future appearance.
