Pepper Potts Won’t Be Back For “Ultron”?

While Robert Downey Jr. is definitely coming back for Joss Whedon’s “The Avengers: Age of Ultron,” it’s not sure if his love interest Pepper Potts will also return.

Actress Gwyneth Paltrow tells Hitfix that she’s not been contacted regarding the film, and only just found out about the title:

“I don’t think so. Nobody has asked me. What is it called? Age of Ultron? Okay. Well, no, I don’t think [I’ll be in it]. I haven’t heard any…my phone has not rung for Avengers 2.

I think it’s a for sure. I think they’re starting shooting soon and they probably would have asked me by now.”

This doesn’t mean much as the actress said a similar thing a few months out from production of the first “The Avengers,” a film which she was definitely a part of.

Paltrow also said “That would be good. That would be fun” when asked if she’d be up for stand-alone movie as her comic book character’s alter ego ‘Rescue’.
