Gwyneth Paltrow not involved in The Avengers

Poor Pepper Potts

Iron Man

Gwyneth Paltrow won’t be tangling with superheroes again in comic mash-up The Avengers.

Having played Pepper Potts in both Iron Man movies, the actress has revealed that nobody has approached her regarding an appearance in Joss Whedon’s epic comic adaptation.

“No Pepper,” Paltrow tells Reelz Channel. “I think it's a for sure. I think they're starting shooting soon. They probably would have asked me by now.”

Previously, Joss Whedon promised that Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow wouldn’t be the only powerful female featuring in The Avengers. But he’s still keeping his lips sealed about who he’ll be recruiting from the comicverse.

For Paltrow, it looks like she’ll have to wait for Iron Man 3 to swing around in a couple of years before she has to dye her hair again...

Were you hoping to see Pepper in Avengers? Or not bothered? Spill below...

      This will be the second time she missed out on The Avengers, she was cast in the 1998 film The Avengers but left the project and Uma Thurman took over. That seemed to work out in her favor so maybe this will too.

      Whatever do you mean, the Avengers was s**te? It had Sean Connery dressed as a Jelly Baby or some s**t having a conference with where he chooses to showed off his lightningamator with which he plans to control the world somehow. Then you got Lord Voldemort with trying to get his dirty f**k on towards her off Kill Bill, and then some other s**t happens. Five stars.
