Hollywood star Gwyneth Paltrow is set to appear on the big screen, with her fourth performance as Pepper Potts, in the movie Iron Man 3. However, it could very well be the last time that we see Gwyneth playing Pepper, if her recent comments are anything to go by. Gwyneth has revealed how her contract with Marvel is now up, so is this the last that we will see of her in the Marvel Cinematic Universe?
Paltrow told Empire Online, "My deal is over as well. When they signed us, they signed us for three. So that's it for the moment, but you never know. The Avengers happened late. It was Robert who said that Pepper has to be in this movie or it's just giant snakes coming out of the sky. We need one grounded beat. And to be totally honest, I haven't seen the movie. It's crazy. My son has seen it, but I haven't. I went out to New Mexico for a day and shot... actually, maybe it was one and a half. Anyway, it was very short."
She added, "I don't think they're going to make a Pepper Potts movie, so it depends on Iron Man and Robert. I'd be open to more Pepper because I love working with Robert and it's a great franchise. Most of the time I'm a full-time mother so it's nice for me to once in a while go and work on a big hit movie with great actors and then go back to North London and resume playdates and stuff like that! I'm always happy when there's an opportunity to do it."
Iron Man 3 is set to be released on April 26 in the UK and then on May 3 in the US. As well as Gwyneth Paltrow coming to the end of her Marvel contract, there have also been suggestions that Robert Downey Jr. could also be walking away from Iron Man.
