Los Angeles, CA, United States (4E) – Gwyneth Paltrow is retiring from the Marvel Cinematic Universe, making ‘Avengers: Endgame’ her final film in the franchise.
Paltrow has been portraying Pepper Potts, Tony Stark/Iron Man’s secretary and girlfriend, the ‘Iron Man’ and ‘Avengers’ movie. Speaking to Variety, she confirmed that she will be retiring the character after a decade.
At 46, Paltrow said she feels “a bit old to be in a suit”. She feels lucky to have been chosen for the role by ‘Iron Man’ director Jon Favreau, who is also a good friend of hers. “It was such a wonderful experience making the first ‘Iron Man’ and then to watch how important it has become to fans,” the actress said.
However, she didn’t close doors on any appearances in future films, although her role would be reduced to cameos or flashbacks.
“I feel honored to be a part of something that people are so passionate about,” she shared. “Of course, if they said, ‘Can you come back for a day?,’ I will always be there if they need me.”
Paltrow said she feels honoured to be part of something many people are passionate about. She even showed her support for ‘Black Panter’ and its Best Picture nomination at the Oscars, saying it’s a “really powerful movie and culturally very important,” IGN reports.
The mother-of-two will appear in the upcoming ‘Avengers: Endgame’, which will hit theaters in April this year. She is also expected to appear in the upcoming ‘Spider-Man: Far From Home’ since her signature appears on a check seen in the first official trailer for the movie.
