It’s been a while since we’ve seen these two lovely actresses in a Marvel movie, and it’s time to welcome them back to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Thanks to an official cast list released by Sony, we know that Gwyneth Paltrow and Jennifer Connelly will be in Spider-Man: Homecoming.
We last saw Paltrow as Tony Star’s love interest Pepper Potts in Iron Man 3 (2013) and she will reprise the role again. The 44-year-old had been absent from Avengers: Age of Ultron and Captain America: Civil War, amid reports that her Marvel contract was up. Now she’s back, though it’s unclear how big a role she will play and whether Tony and Pepper have indeed broken up.
Meanwhile, Connelly played Betty Ross in the ill-fated first Hulk movie in 2003, but has now been cast as “Karen/Suit Lady”. Which means that she’s either playing a) a small role or b) her role is being disguised with an innocuous name. The Oscar-winner has also signed up for the Snowpiercer TV series.
