    Gwyneth Paltrow Won't Be In Any More MCU Movies And Fans Are Like, "What Does That Mean For Tony???"

    "If you touch even one follicle on Pepper Potts' head, Marvel, I swear..."

    Since 2008, Gwyneth Paltrow has portrayed MCU's Pepper Potts, aka the yin to Tony Stark's yang.

    Seriously, this woman has saved Tony's mind, body, and soul more than once, not to mention that time in Iron Man 3 when she basically saved the world. Give πŸ‘ Pepper πŸ‘ her πŸ‘ props πŸ‘ .

    In a new interview with Variety, Gwyneth talked about our beloved Pepper and revealed that, after Endgame, she's retiring the character: β€œI mean, I’m a bit old to be in a suit and all that at this point."

    She said, "I feel very lucky that I did it, because I actually got talked into it...It was such a wonderful experience making the first Iron Man, and then to watch how important it has become to fans."

    β€œI feel honored to be a part of something that people are so passionate about.”

    Please excuse me, I just need a moment to get myself together. I'm totally fine, I promise. I'm definitely not crying at my desk right now.

    To recap, the last time we saw Pepper was in Avengers: Infinity War. She and Tony were running in the park when he stopped and told her he'd had a dream that they had a son 😒. Then she asked him why he had to keep being Iron Man, to which he replied that it was to protect them.

    Later in the movie, Pepper called Tony when he was in space and begged him to come back to Earth. (Spoiler: He didn't. For all we know, he's still floating around up there with Peter's ashes. RIP!)

    With the announcement that Gwyneth's hanging up Pepper's pots, fans are panicking that this means things don't end well for our favorite engaged couple.

    wait what do you mean by "gwyneth paltrow is leaving mcu"?????? i swear ill start a commotion if i don't get my pepper-tony wedding

    pepper and tony deserve their happy ending

    While others were just concerned for Pepper's safety.

    if you touch even one follicle on pepper potts' head marvel i swear to fuck

    WAIT WHAT IF PEPPER ENDS UP DYING TO SAVE TONY IN ENDGAME

    But, on that front, there's hope! Gwyneth told Variety, β€œOf course, if they said, β€˜Can you come back for a day?,’ I will always be there if they need me.”

    We all know that cameos and flashbacks don't guarantee anything, but it makes me a little more optimistic that Pepper will survive.

    As for Tony...

    …let's just say that fans are trying to think happy thoughts.

    -gwyneth paltrow is leaving the mcu after endgame -pepper potts is still alive, because she was signing the stark relief check conclusion: tony and pepper don’t appear after endgame because they’re retired and raising a child together

    concept: pepper in the rescue armor saves tony from space. then they fight together with the avengers the evil for the last time and then she AND tony retire to get married&live a happy life in their house with 2882 cats and maybe a baby https://t.co/xShBWuuJwJ

    WAIT let's be positive,,, this does mean pepper and tony are moving on to a farm where they'll live chilling with the kiddos,, right??????

    What do you think Pepper's retirement means for Tony's fate? Do you think they'll make it down the aisle? Tell us your theories in the comments below!
