Paltrow is Pepper Potts

Jon Favreau has cast none other than Gwyneth Paltrow as Virginia "Pepper" Potts, Tony Stark's executive assistant in Iron Man. Paltrow's only previous foray into this genre was the abysmal Sky Captain and the World Of Tomorrow in which she was tragically cast as Polly Perkins (I'm undoubatly the only one tittering at the fact she's going from Polly Perkins to Pepper Potts).

I was happier with Rachel McAdams whom the original rumour for her appearence broke on 2IGTV and I can't say I'm overly thrilled by the idea of Paltrow but I hope it's just because the mental scarring of Sky Captain hasn't fully healed yet and I'm associating her with that. Still however, she's on equal footing with Robert Downey Jr. and Terrence Howard as she's also been nominated for an Oscar at some point.
