Gwyneth Paltrow was on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert where she teased that Pepper Potts may still have her powers in Avengers: Infinity War.
This is the question on everybody’s lips. Will Pepper Potts still have her powers in Avengers: Infinity War? Actually, I’m pretty sure that not many people had even thought about that. Gwyneth Paltrow’s Pepper Potts is now the head of a multimillion-dollar corporation because Tony Stark is too busy going around the world fighting other heroes in an iron suit. She’s now the face of Stark Industries, and people tend to forget that she was the hero of Iron Man 3. Without her, Tony would have been done for.
Anyway, we already knew that Paltrow had done some filming on the new Avengers movie, Avengers: Infinity War, yet we still weren’t sure whether she’d still be superpowered or not. We did see her briefly in Spider-Man: Homecoming, but she didn’t get to show off her skills during her brief cameo. That said, rumours are circling the Internet that Potts will be the first one to die in Avengers: Infinity War and that she’ll be in the suit when that happens.
During her interview on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert, he pressed her on whether Potts would have her powers in the movie. Her response wasn’t what you might call concrete, but she did seem to hint at that being the case. She started off by confirming that she’ll be in both movies saying, “I am, I am. I’m in them!” Colbert then asked her whether she’d have powers in the movie. “You know, to be totally honest, I’m unclear. Because it’s so secretive and it’s all on green screen, and I’m not exactly sure. And they don’t let me say anything,” she said.
But Colbert wouldn’t take that for an answer and kept on trying to pry the information out of her. “Is there any chance, at any point, when you were working on the movie, did you thrust your hand toward someone wearing a blue suit with ping pong balls on it?” he asked, to which the actress responded, “Yes.”
As I said, it’s not concrete, but it would be very cool to see Pepper Potts get to play around with the powers she inherited in Iron Man 3.
