"I don't even know if there is an Iron Man 4. I hope there is an Iron Man 4, I hope I'm in it."


Back in April, when Gwyneth Paltrow was doing press for Iron Man 3 she told Geek Nation, "I don't think there's going to be [an Iron Man 4], I think we're done with Iron Man."

As we know, her co-star Robert Downey Jr. only signed a lucrative two picture deal with Marvel for Avengers: Age Of Ultron and the third untitled Avengers sequel. We'll assume based on that contract Marvel probably inquired about Downey Jr. interest in coming back as Tony Stark for a fourth solo film. If it happened he must've passed. And with Paltrow recently confirming that no one has called her about being in Joss Whedon's Avengers: Age of Ultron, it looks likely that Iron Man 3 was that last we will see of Pepper Potts in the Marvel cinematic universe. Well, we still have the memory of seeing her at the climax of the film wearing, apparently fire retardant underwear.

Marvel Studios’ “Iron Man 3″ pits brash-but-brilliant industrialist Tony Stark/Iron Man against an enemy whose reach knows no bounds. When Stark finds his personal world destroyed at his enemy’s hands, he embarks on a harrowing quest to find those responsible. This journey, at every turn, will test his mettle. With his back against the wall, Stark is left to survive by his own devices, relying on his ingenuity and instincts to protect those closest to him. As he fights his way back, Stark discovers the answer to the question that has secretly haunted him: does the man make the suit or does the suit make the man?



Iron Man 3 was directed by Shane Black, from a screenplay written by Drew Pearce. The film opened in theaters May 3, 2013. It stars: Robert Downey Jr. (Tony Stark), Gwyneth Paltrow (Virginia Potts), Don Cheadle (Col. James Rhodes), and Ben Kingsley as The Mandarin.

AnotherSinisterClone - 9/17/2013, 5:36 PM
she ruined the ending of a shitty but fun movie. f her.
MarkV - 9/17/2013, 5:36 PM
As far as I'm concerned they only made one Iron Man film.
CherryBomb - 9/17/2013, 5:43 PM
They should do another if only to redeem themselves.

Also. You can't have a movie a out Iron Man without Pepper!!
They're the best CBM couple.
DelTorite - 9/17/2013, 5:44 PM
Feige can't wait to recast RDJ
CherryBomb - 9/17/2013, 5:45 PM
Either way,
It may be good for the Iron Man movies to end.

So Marvel can focus on another character who needs the big screen treatment.
Luke Cage perhaps? Black Panther?

@BlackJack10
his expression LOL.
GetsugaTensho22 - 9/17/2013, 5:53 PM
I have never liked her. Neither her acting nor personality, let alone her looks. I guess that sort of "down to earth plain jane" is exactly why she works so well as a foil to Rock-star Tony Stark.
VinzClortho - 9/17/2013, 5:54 PM
Dear god take me now!
Scorpion8125 - 9/17/2013, 5:55 PM

Soooo... no Iron Man 4 after limp Iron Man 3 made over a BILLION FREAKING dollars.

I would bet everything I will ever have that IM 4 with RDJ will happen.

MONEY BABY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

May be 3-4 years, but it WILL happen.

Wolf38 - 9/17/2013, 5:56 PM
IM had a trilogy, ended with on a good note. For RDJ, six films (+ cameos) is not bad at all. In fact, more burn than any other CBM actor yet, right?

As far as Pepper...eh. It will always be nice to see familiar faces show up, but there are plenty of characters waiting on their first screen time.
ScottMontgomery - 9/17/2013, 5:59 PM
I don't want another Iron Man film, I would prefer it if they gave films to characters who haven't gotten the big screen treatment like Iron Fist or Black Panther. I do want Stark to keep popping up in the MCU
Inhuman - 9/17/2013, 6:09 PM
No need for an Iron Man 4. Im totally fine with Iron Man just returning for Avengers 2 and 3. Iron Man 4 is going to be overkill and usually 4th movies usually ruin a solid trilogy, which Iron Man is.
Inhuman - 9/17/2013, 6:11 PM
Also I think Pepper can come back but as a voice. If Ultron destroys JARVIS, Tony has to create a new AI system. In the comics he made PEPPER which has her voice. That be kind of cool
Scorpion8125 - 9/17/2013, 6:29 PM
I do not hope for a 4th Iron Man...

but it will happen.

Repeat after me... It made a BILLION+ dollars!!!

A 4th crappy Pirates of the Caribbean happened.

A 5th crappy POTC movie is in the works.

Money talks. Who knows? Maybe we might see a good Iron Man movie happen after the last 2 shitters.

Could happen....

Thanks for pointing out that reference "Contagion" in the article description. Otherwise I would have no idea who this Gwyneth Paltrow is...
ImTheCaptainOfThisShip - 9/17/2013, 6:32 PM

BritishMonkey - 9/17/2013, 6:32 PM
Yeah, nahh, not for a while.
eleven59 - 9/17/2013, 6:37 PM
wait!!!.. when they first sat down, Chelsea said "what a vision" that confirms it!! so its true, she wont be coming back as pepper.. but rather Vision! ;)

Poor SuperGuy83 trying so hard to be a troll.
TheFlyingGarcia - 9/17/2013, 7:10 PM
Wow didn't she NOT want to be a part of Iron Man 3. I heard they had to pay her extra or something
aztecRaingod - 9/17/2013, 7:16 PM


There is no way in hell there will be a 4th installment.

If WB/DC couldnt get Bale to come back for a bajillion dollars, theres no way Downey is coming back. Especially not with two more appearances (A2/A3) in his contract.

Shit final installment. Let this trilogy rest in peace, please.
Ramiel - 9/17/2013, 7:33 PM
More Pepper Pots please!
TheRationalNerd - 9/17/2013, 7:34 PM
I think the iron man franchise is done for. They're very fun and entertaining and we'll leave it at that. I'm after Downey's finished get a younger actor in his early to mid 30's to play the role of Tony Stark. The way I see it, the younger the actor the more films you can make. (May be a bit biased but that's how I see it) Downey brought so much life to the role of Tony Stark the first time I saw him in Iron Man (2008) and he's been great ever since. However I'm ready for a more serious take on Iron Man, (not dark or gritty) just serious and not humorous.
Jollem - 9/17/2013, 8:19 PM
pepper was a pretty good female character in a cbm

vaahtlnirn1 - 9/17/2013, 8:21 PM
Nobody wants Iron Man 4 after [frick]ing Iron Man 3....
JoJo1982 - 9/17/2013, 8:29 PM
Iron Man can make a 10 or 15 minutes appearance in another marvel movie after Phase 3. Have Robert Downey do appearance inside the suit, that would be coo
ruadh - 9/17/2013, 8:31 PM
Eh, money talks. If they want to make another ton of cash with Iron Man 4, of course they'll pay RDJ enough to make it happen. I'd be fine either way, just glad to get him for at least Avengers 2 and 3.
ManDeth - 9/17/2013, 8:33 PM
After the greatness of Iron Man, the series looked like a contender for greatest CBM series ever. But IM 2+3 were worse than the Star Wars Prequels. So that kinda took care of that.
