Production continues on the upcoming untitled Avengers 4 and following photos from yesterday showing the recreation of a Japanese city, new photos reveal that Gwyneth Paltrow will return for the upcoming film in the role of Pepper Potts! Check out the photos of her with stars Robert Downey Jr. and Mark Ruffalo plus co-director Anthony Russo below! Paltrow reprised her role as Pepper in this summer’s Spider-Man: Homecoming after a four-year absence from the MCU.
The currently-untitled feature will arrive one year after Avengers: Infinity War and will cap off Marvel Studios’ “Phase Three.”
Confirmed cast members for Avengers: Infinity War so far include Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Scalett Johansson, Chris Hemsworth, Anthony Mackie, Paul Bettany, Elizabeth Olson, Chadwick Boseman, Sebastian Stan, Don Cheadle, Chris Pratt, Dave Bautista, Zoe Saldana, Pom Klementieff, Benedict Cumberbatch, Benedict Wong, Sean Gunn, Tom Holland, Josh Brolin, and Paul Rudd.
The Avengers sequel sees Earth’s Mightiest Heroes teaming up with the Guardians of the Galaxy to take on Brolin’s Thanos and his Black Order.
Directors Anthony and Joe Russo, who return after Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Captain America: Civil War, are directing both Avengers: Infinity War and the untitled fourth film, which are being filmed back-to-back in Atlanta and are written by screenwriters Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely. Both films will also be shot entirely with IMAX cameras.
Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War is slated for a release in theaters on May 4, 2018. Then, the Avengers assemble again for the still-untitled fourth film, set for May 3, 2019.
