There’s little doubt that Avengers 4 is going to be one of the biggest events in Marvel cinematic history, with a mind-boggling number of cast members to boot.
Currently shooting in Atlanta, our eyes have been firmly peeled for any familiar faces/spoilers popping up on location, but right now it seems Gwyneth Paltrow is happy to do some of our dirty work for us. The actress – who is reprising her role as Pepper Potts in the movie – confirmed in a new interview with The Hollywood Reporter that Don Cheadle is also back as James Rhodes/War.
Speaking to THR, Paltrow revealed: "I went to Atlanta to do Avengers 4, so I’m in and out for that, and it’s weird to go back and forth. We’re growing fast, and balls are dropping all the time. But honestly, I was on set and thought, 'You sit here for two hours sipping tea, Robert Downey Jr. and Don Cheadle are making me laugh hysterically -- why the hell did I give this up?'”
Nice work, Gwyneth. Other eagle-eyed fans also spotted the actress on set wearing an engagement ring while in character, but no wedding ring just yet.
So far, set photos from Atlanta have rumored the likes of Paul Rudd’s Ant-Man, Brie Larson’s Captain Marvel and Jeremy Renner’s Hawkeye to be involved. Even Robert Downey Jr. himself let slip that Jon Favreau's Happy Hogan looks set to make an appearance thanks to an on-set Instagram snap.
Avengers 4 is set for release on May 3, 2019. Which surprise characters do you think will be coming back for the movie? Indulge us with your theories below.
