Gwyneth Paltrow will reprise her role as Tony Stark’s love interest Virginia “Pepper” Potts in Captain America: Civil War. Directed by Joe and Anthony Russo, the film stars Robert Downey Jr. and Chris Evans.
Paltrow’s character last appeared in Iron Man 3 (2013). It’s unclear how extensive her role will be in Civil War. The film’s storyline is based on concepts from the 2006 comic book series “Civil War” by Mark Millar and Steve McNiven.
The new saga pits Captain America and Iron Man against each other, as they take different sides after the US government passes a Superhero Registration Act. The divide creates friction between the Avengers, ultimately resulting in epic superhero fights with each other.
The film also stars Scarlett Johansson, Sebastian Stan, Anthony Mackie, Don Cheadle, Elizabeth Olsen, Jeremy Renner, Chadwick Boseman, Emily Van Camp, William Hurt, Daniel Bruhl, Frank Grillo, Paul Rudd, Paul Bettany and Martin Freeman.
Captain America: Civil War will be released by Disney on May 6, 2016.
