Gwyneth Paltrow has been confirmed alongside Robert Downey Jr. and Terence Howard for the upcoming Jon Favreau, directed Iron Man movie.
She has been confirmed as Virginia “Pepper” Potts, who is Stark’s Secretary, so going as far as saying “Love interest” at this point may be a bit of a stretch but who knows.
Paltrow has a string of awards under her belt as an actress including “Shakespeare in Love” and “Seven” and has starred in several Rom-Com’s including “Shallow Hal”. She also appeared in the Sci-Fi action-adventure “Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow” with Jude Law, which was met with mixed reviews. But at least she dived into the Sci-Fi realm feet first and gave it her all.
With the main cast shaping up nicely let’s hope the screenplay can live up to the hype.
Iron Man is still on schedule for release in May 2008.
