Hot of the heels of the (low-quality) reveal of the teaser trailer for the superhero ensemble, the folks from Dis Fan Review are suggesting that 'Pepper Potts' actress Gwyneth Paltrow, from both Iron Man films, will surely be reprising the role in next year's The Avengers. While the actress hinted at the possibility months ago, the site says:

According to our sources the famous Hollywood leading lady made an extremely quiet entrance into New Mexico on Monday or Tuesday and was said to have definitely departed by Thursday, making an equally quiet exit. A source close to the production say's that somewhere in that time frame Mrs. [Paltrow] spent two entire days shooting her appearance in the film. Our sources also indicate that her part in the film is more than just a glorified cameo. However, our sources were unwilling to reveal much more than that.



Marvel's The Avengers picks up when an unexpected enemy emerges that threatens global safety and security. And Nick Fury, director of the international peacekeeping agency known as S.H.I.E.L.D., finds himself in need of a team to pull the world back from the brink of disaster. With director Joss Whedon at it's helm, and an ensemble cast including Chris Evans (Steve Rogers), Robert Downey Jr. (Tony Stark), Chris Hemsworth (Thor Odinson), Jeremy Renner (Clint Barton), Mark Ruffalo (Bruce Banner), Scarlett Johansson (Natasha Romanoff), Clark Gregg (Agt. Phil Coulson), Cobie Smulders (Maria Hill), Samuel L. Jackson (Nick Fury), with Tom Hiddleston (Loki Laufeyson), and Stellan Skarsgard (Professor Erik Selvig), the film releases worldwide May 4, 2012!

@ hellsing

I agree man, they should at least mention why betty isn't in the avengers, n ross. i mean nothin ever perfect, but they should have liv tyler make a camao as well with peppor potts, well actually, they should have betty as a regular star, whats up with that, oh and where the hell is hank pym, n the wasp? well idk its not a perfect movie but it'll be just as great.

@Hellsing-where the hell is betty and especially her dad Thunderbolt Ross, theres been no mention of william hurt what so ever, I mean Tony did meet up with him about the "team"

I totally agree with you 100%. Even if Gen & Betty Ross just make a 5 minute cameo (Betty to have longer than 5 min.), that would justify Tony Stark meeting Ross at end of TIH.

My big fear with this movie is that I hope they make each of the main avengers have equal roles. Unlike X-men (where it was mostly centered around Wolverine) If they take the X-men route it might be about Iron Man mostly since as of right now he's the most popular with the general Audience. Yeah it worked pretty well for X-men, but come on. Let them each have equal importance.
sonofsamadams - 7/17/2011, 10:03 PM
oh shit I worded that wrong. What I meant to say was that my big fear is that they WON'T make the main avengers have equal importance. Sorry. Not really getting used to this no edit/delete button.
FriendlyNeighborhoodSpidey - 7/17/2011, 10:03 PM
good. It wouldn't make sense with out her. She has been involved a lot with S.H.E.I.L.D. and she is Tony's girl...... though, black widow is in this so.........
Also I agree with hulk2008 and hellsing. There should be a scene with betty and ross.
ESPECIALLY ROSS because it would further justify why tony met with him.
JohnTom88 - 7/17/2011, 10:23 PM
I think Peggy Carter/Hayley Atwell should be at it too as ship's hologram.
DocDrop - 7/17/2011, 10:31 PM
Yep, we DEFINIETLY need Betty & Gen. Ross...
95 - 7/17/2011, 10:36 PM
Pepper is probably the most important love interest in the MCU so far.
SugarYumYum - 7/17/2011, 10:50 PM
Yep, Portman needs to be brought back too. They're a big part of their respective movies so it'd feel weird and empty not to have them in the movie.
LiLHecLou - 7/17/2011, 10:55 PM
i expect Jane foster to show up because she has to be the reason Thor shows up in earth with the bifrost bridge gone and Betty ross i would like to see show up but idk how to get her in the mix of the movie and yes thunderbolt where is he,i think rhodey could cameo too
njferns - 7/17/2011, 10:55 PM
Oh that oughta be cool! Pepper's in!! But it's still gonna be a teeny-tiny role if she shot it in 2 days?!? unless she's gonna come for the OH shoots too! :D
@Anthrax
HAHA I thought it was just me not seeeing the Edit/Delete buttons (cos I thought it was a repurcussion of me getting a troll badge LOL). I see I'm not the only one now...It's not to be seen since quite a few days now! :(

Bring back Jane Foster and Betty Ross!!!!
croniccris - 7/17/2011, 11:03 PM
cool! miss potts in avengers? i can dig it!


@DCMarvelFreshman but when you say whos gonna be in the movie and you put Thor Odinson shouldn't you put Loki Odinson too?
DCMarvelFreshman - 7/17/2011, 11:07 PM
@croniccris More Loki Laufeyson. I should add that in huh? yeah, I will. Thanks for pointing that out bro)
Jer3miah - 7/17/2011, 11:14 PM
That'd be tight. She's fine as hell.
Jer3miah - 7/17/2011, 11:15 PM
@CaptAmazingly - Ay, good point. All the character's love interests would seriously need to be in the Avengers. So, what? They're going to forget about the other branching stories? That'd be so ghey...
tazmaniak - 7/18/2011, 12:01 AM
I say leave the girlfriends out.We have Cap, Thor, Iron Man, Widow, Banner/Hulk, Fury, Hawkeye, Hill, Coulson and Loki and only 2 hours to tell their story.We don't need these other characters.Let their story play out in the solo movies.

I mean,when I'm reading an Avengers comic, unless a wife/girlfriend is part of the team, I don't expect them to actually show up in the issues.So, why would they be in the movie?
tazmaniak - 7/18/2011, 12:03 AM
I'd much rather see War Machine than Pepper.There's this planetary threat and Rhody also has a suit.So why wouldn't he also show up to fight?It doesn't make sense.
SamHell - 7/18/2011, 12:26 AM
2 fly's fu.cking would be more interesting than seeing Liv Tyler again as BR

Damn whers pothead at??
TayDee - 7/18/2011, 12:29 AM
it has to be a cameo. Pepper Potts has shown 0 importance in these films
Rango - 7/18/2011, 1:42 AM
what about Betty Ross frend?
shaddowkhan - 7/18/2011, 2:54 AM
Betty Ross no problem but not that chick from the incredible hulk she looked like she had an allergic reaction for the whole film
GUNSMITH - 7/18/2011, 3:23 AM
I BET, AND OF COURSE MARVEL WILL HAVE PLANNED IT..EVERY SEPERATE ENTERPRISE LIKE SAY HULK MOVIE OR THOR MOVIE OR CAP MOVIE ALL SHOT EASTER EGGS AND CAMEO STUFF AND MAYBE SHOT SCENES WITH SPECIFIC ACTORS TO MAYBE MAKE A SECRET "SOUP" INGREDIENT TO SPLICE AND INCLUDE IN THE AVENGERS MOVIE..THAT WAY SPECIFIC ACTORS CAN SAY.."NO I WON'T BE DOING ANY SHOOTS FOR AVENGERS" BUT THEY COULD HAVE SHOT TAKES IN THEIR OWN SEPERATE FILMS TO COMBINE IN THE AVENGERS MOVIE..ITS A BIG PRODUCTION..INCLUDING ALL THE WORLDS OF EACH INDIVIDUAL HERO IS A HUGE UNDERTAKING..EACH DIRECTOR OF EACH FILM KNOWS AND CONSULTS WITH MARVEL AND KNOW THE PLAN I..IF EACH MOVIE FRANCHISE IS A FINGER, AVENGERS IS THE FIST.
CherryBomb - 7/18/2011, 5:00 AM

Yes! I love Gwyneth and she deserves to have some role in the film!
She should be besties with Betty Ross.

jjmeylar - 7/18/2011, 5:59 AM
One would hope so.
Rulk - 7/18/2011, 7:25 AM
There MUST BE a General Thaddeus E. "Thunderbolt" Ross cameo. THERE MUST!!!!
EarOne - 7/18/2011, 7:39 AM
as far as i'm concerned Gwyneth, Liv and Natalie, even Jon (Favreau, who plays Happy Hogan) can all cameo in The Avengers. BUT, the one character from a previous marvel film i really wanna see in The Avengers, in a bigger role than a cameo, IS...William Hurt.

Indeed as another poster pointed out, Hurt's Ross did meet up with RDJ's Tony, so that should count for something..UNLESS, which i REALLY hope is NOT the case, they're planning to reboot yet again the Hulk franchise with Ruffalo in the lead. i really don't think another reboot is necessary..thus, just have one or two actors from Norton's The Incredible Hulk appear in The Avengers to legitimize Ruffalo AND assure us that there WON'T be another reboot for the Hulk.

and yes, having seen the pic of Gwyneth and Liv makes me think it'd be kinda cool to have the "girlfriends" know each other and even hang out together in a scene.
AlienRobotZombieOverlord - 7/18/2011, 8:27 AM
Ross shoudl be brought back for a cameo, and really it would make sense to have at least a glimpse of Natalie Portman's character based on where THOR left us at the end.
CherryBomb - 7/18/2011, 9:12 AM

@EarOne Totally, I'd like a nice scene in Avengers that involves the girlfriends (Betty Ross, Pepper Potts and Jane Foster) just having a nice discussion or something. That would be perfect for me.

If they don't even have a scene, then I will be very upset.
agentofshield - 7/18/2011, 9:15 AM
ya we def. need to see some Gen. Ross. AND IT BETTER [frick]ING BE WILLIAM HURT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
