In an interview with Variety, Gwyneth Paltrow has confirmed that she will not be returning to the Marvel Cinematic Universe after the events of ‘Avengers: End Game’. However, she claims that, if they need a cameo or a flashback scene, she’s up for the task.
“I mean, I’m a bit old to be in a suit and all that at this point. I feel very lucky that I did it, because I actually got talked into it. I was friend with [‘Iron Man’ director] Jon Favreau. It was such a wonderful experience making the first ‘Iron Man’ and then to watch how important it has become to fans. I feel honored to be a part of something that people are so passionate about. Of course, if they said, ‘Can you come back for a day?,’ I will always be there if they need me.”
This comes as no shock as more stars from our beloved franchise will soon be departing off of our silver screen. Robert Downey Jr. and Chris Evans’ contracts will be up after ‘Avengers: End Game’ and they will likely not reappear in any future installments.
This ultimately leaves room for more characters from the comics to take up the mantle of Iron Man and Captain America. As for Hawkeye, The Hulk, Thor and Black Widow (who has her solo project coming soon), there is no word on if they will continue their character arcs in future films.
Paltrow has been keeping busy with her lifestyle magazine, Goop, which is slowly turning into a production company with new projects coming out as early as this year.
