Did Pepper Potts survive Thanos's deadly Gauntlet snap in Avengers: Infinity War? A new Instagram photo posted by Gwyneth Paltrow seems to indicate that Tony Stark's fiancee did not turn into a fine powder when the Mad Titan (Josh Brolin) completed his plan to wipe out half of all life in the universe by utilizing the power of the Infinity Stones.
Taking a selfie with Robert Downey Jr., Paltrow's caption reads: "Lunchtime #pepperony," a cute little combination of Pepper and Tony. Production on the currently-untitled fourth Avengers film wrapped in January, but reshoots only began earlier this month, which means that Pepper's got at least one scene.
Of course, it could be that she did disintegrate and that her character is only revived when Tony and the remaining Avengers (joined by Brie Larson's Captain Marvel) reverse the effects of Thanoss snap. Her scene could be Pepper and Tony's long-awaited wedding or she could play an instrumental part in helping our heroes save the universe, just like she saved Tony behind in Iron Man 3.
Back in May, an interview with the actress hinted that Avengers 4 could feature some sort of flash-forward to a point where Pepper and Tony are married and have a child together.
Last we saw of Pepper, she was abandoned in Central Park once Tony was recruited into the cosmic battle for all life everywhere by Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) and Bruce Banner (Mark Ruffalo). She wants Tony to give up his life as a superhero and settle down with her, but instead, her husband-to-be travels into space, losing all communication with her.
He's presumed missing by those back on Earth, but we all know that he's still on Titan, grieving over the loss of Peter Parker (Tom Holland) and the general thought of losing to a villain for the first time in the Avengers' history. His only companion is Nebula (Karen Gillan), who is probably the only one that can get them off of that planet.
Avengers 4 arrives in theaters on Friday, May 3, 2019.
