Surprise Iron Man Character Returns For Captain America: Civil War



It's been three years, but come this May a popular character from the Iron Man movies will be making her return to the Marvel Cinematic Universe in Captain America: Civil War.

In addition to the Spider-Man details, the latest issue of Empire Magazine reveals Gwyneth Paltrow will be back as Pepper Potts.

Here's the blurb:

When Empire caught up with the Russo's recently, they'd already had riotously successful test screenings and were beginning five days of pick-ups to finish off Civil War, with Evans, Downey Jr. and Gwyneth Paltrow's Pepper among those returning. Then, at some point in the next month, they'll start focusing on Infinity War in earnest. Markus and McFeely have already produced a first draft of that script after spending months breaking the story.

Paltrow was last seen in 2013's Iron Man 3.

"Captain America: Civil War" has  a May 6, 2016 release date directed by Anthony and Joe Russo starring Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Elizabeth Olsen, Sebastian Stan, Anthony Mackie, Frank Grillo, Paul Bettany, Don Cheadle, Emily VanCamp, William Hurt, Martin Freeman and Chadwick Boseman as Black Panther.


Captain America: Civil War picks up where Avengers: Age of Ultron left off, as Steve Rogers leads the new team of Avengers in their continued efforts to safeguard humanity. After another international incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability and a governing body to determine when to enlist the services of the team. The new status quo fractures the Avengers while they try to protect the world from a new and nefarious villain.
