Did Gwyneth Paltrow just drop an Avengers 4 spoiler? Actress reveals huge twist in Tony Stark, Pepper Pots relationship
In the end scenes of Infinity War, had it not been for Dr. Strange and his last-minute change of heart, Robert Downey Jr's superhero might have perished at the hands of Thanos.
As much as we love jumping onto the spoilers bandwagon, the latest revelation from MCU's tightly-guarded safehold comes as quite a shock.
The information is, more or less, related to the future of a certain fan-favorite Avenger, Iron Man, who - the last time we checked - narrowly escaped a fatal fight, thanks to his new professional ally Dr. Strange. But before all of that, before the Infinity War, and the end of the world-like-situation, though, movie-goers were treated to a tender moment between the to-be-married couple, Tony Stark and Pepper Pots.
In the scene, Tony appears to hint towards a future with his assistant-turned-girlfriend and even implies that he had a dream, where Pepper is pregnant with their child. At the moment, the scene might have appeared like another of Tony's eccentric exchanges. However, in the light of a recently-surfaced interview - it garners a whole new meaning.
Speaking about the evolving relationship between her character and the Stark Industries head, Marvel star Gwyneth Paltrow appears to have gone a little overboard with the revelations. Not only did the actress dish about a happily married life with Tony but also let slip that the couple has welcomed a child in the distant future.
"Pepper and Tony have had a real long journey together," Paltrow said, dropping the ball on the secrets in the official Avengers: Infinity War magazine. "She obviously starts as his dutiful assistant, and then the relationship evolves, and now this decade later they're married, and they have a child."
"Their relationship has evolved in all of the ways that great romances evolve," added Paltrow.
This indeed comes as a major surprise, considering the fate of our beloved Iron Man was almost hanging by the thread at the end of Infinity War. Had it not been for Dr. Strange and his last-minute change of heart, Robert Downey Jr's superhero might have perished at the hands of Thanos.
Does this mean Iron Man is the key to bringing back the half of the population that have been swiped clean by the mad titan? Our best bet is to wait until Avengers 4, that arrives next year on May 5.
