***MAJOR SPOILER ALERT!!! This is ALL SPOILERS!!! TURN BACK OR DON’T CLICK IF YOU DON’T WANT TO SEE THIS ‘AVENGERS 4’ SPOILER!!! *** REPEAT*** MAJOR SPOILER ALERT!!! This is ALL SPOILERS!!! TURN BACK OR DON’T CLICK IF YOU DON’T WANT TO SEE THIS ‘AVENGERS 4’ SPOILER!!!***
Well, at least we now know that one major supporting character was not eliminated when Thanos snapped his fingers at the end of ‘Avengers: Infinity War’. That would have probably done poor Tony Stark in, after the gut-wrenching loss of surrogate son-figure Spider-Man, who turned to dust in his arms.
Gwyneth Paltrow’s Pepper Potts is safe. She appeared at the beginning of ‘Infinity War’, jogging in the park with Tony (Robert Downey Jr.) and it was revealed that the two had gotten engaged off-camera. Tony was even talking having kids. But then Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) and Bruce Banner (Mark Ruffalo) showed up and Tony had to take off to help save the Earth again.
Pepper suited up in ‘Iron Man 3’ and was then turned super by the Extremis virus. Fans wondered if she would ever adopt a permanent heroic identity. In the comics, she has operated as the armored champion Rescue and fans have been keeping their fingers crossed that Paltrow’s Pepper would do the same on the big screen. But chances seemed to dwindle as Paltrow’s role shrank to small cameos in recent films.
But guess what, fans! Pepper indeed gets her own suit of armor in ‘Avengers 4’ and this leaked photo proves it!
Pepper had previously donned one of Tony’s suits in ‘Iron Man 3’, but this one was clearly made specifically for her.
It’s interesting that Paltrow was given a practical suit. From the look of things, both Iron Man and Spider-Man’s armor in ‘Infinity War’ was rendered using CGI and the actors wearing motion-capture suits. Downey Jr. has also been photographed wearing a mo-cap suit while filming ‘Avengers 4’. But for whatever reason– and it may have something to do with the movie’s plot– Paltrow is wearing a real suit of armor. In fact, around her arms, you can see that the suit is more leathery than the typical all-metal Stark suits. Once more, maybe that will be explained in the movie, or perhaps it will look completely different once the visual effects on the film are completed.
In another potential spoiler, in May, Paltrow may have slipped-up when she said that Pepper and Tony had a kid. Obviously, that wasn’t the case in ‘Infinity War’ but we know that there will be a significant time jump between that film and ‘Avengers 4′. Has she SPOILED that fans can expect to see a lil’ Tony or Pepper running around?
What do you think? Are you excited to see Pepper as Rescue in ‘Avengers 4’?
‘Avengers 4’ directed by Joe and Anthony Russo arrives in theaters on May 3, 2019.
