As reported in Fandom Wire, Gwenyth Paltrow recently revealed that she was not ready to take MCU’s offer to play Pepper Potts. However, it was Robert Downey Jr who thought she could bring something more to the table and wanted her association in the movies. She shared, “(Robert) was very sweet when he called me, and I think we had both kind of been doing these kind of labor of love art films that had been seen by like 16 people, and he said to me ‘Don’t you wanna be in a movie that people actually see?’” Paltrow recounted. “And I thought ‘I never thought of that!’ So, I’m really, really glad that I did it.”

Since then, Gwenyth’s Pepper Potts and Robert’s Iron Man became an iconic superhero couple in the MCU world. After working in the first Iron Man movie, Gwenyth’s joy knew no bound, and apparently she waited to work on the sequels next.
