Robert Downey Jr. and Gwyneth Paltrow reveal new details about the relationship between Tony Stark and Pepper Potts in The Avengers, including the current status of their romance and more. Earlier this month, the Japanese trailer for Marvel's The Avengers confirmed that Gwyneth Paltrow's Pepper Potts would play some sort of role in Joss Whedon's superhero ensemble. Here's what the actress had to say about what has been going on with Pepper since we last saw her in Iron Man 2.
"At the end of ‘Iron Man 2,’ Pepper and Tony had a real kiss, which was great because they had been building it up for two films. So in ‘The Avengers,’ the idea is that they’re heading somewhere, but it hasn’t, shall we say, consummated yet."

However, it was Robert Downey Jr. (Tony Stark/Iron Man) who convinced Marvel Studios to bring back Pepper for The Avengers as he sees her as a vital part of the progression of his character.
"When we were in the first of several iterations of the storyline, the only thing I was sure about was that Tony Stark needed backup." He added: "I said to Joss and Kevin, ‘We really need Pepper to be involved in some way.’ I felt like it’s been a while since we have seen Tony and Pepper and they have grown to be pretty close and it just makes sense that she would have some kind of influence over his decision to join ‘The Avengers’ team."

Robert Downey Jr. on why Iron Man and Captain America’s relationship is pivotal for The Avengers to work:
“I’m extremely fond of Chris Evans and I think he is one of the most underrated actors out there. I watch him and I think to myself, here is a guy who is wearing a stretchy American flag suit and I absolutely believe him. How is he doing this? The other thing I love about Chris is that he’s kind of this tough guy from Boston, but he also is a sensitive artist who really has an opinion. […] Our characters are very connected because Steve Rogers was close with Howard Stark and there’s something definitive and tangible about their relationship. If Steve Rogers and Tony Stark’s relationship doesn’t work, then the film doesn’t work.”
