Tony Stark And Pepper Potts Are Getting A Daughter In 'Avengers: Endgame'. Everything We Know About The Theory
Now that the premiere of ‘Avengers: Endgame’ is only a few months away, fans are getting more zealous with their theories. Everything that came up after ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ can be linked to new leaks like toys and actor’s comments. Gwyneth Paltrow might have accidentally slipped some clues regarding Pepper Potts recently. Here are the details.
HINTS FROM ACTORS
After the release of ‘Avengers: Infinity War’, the actress said that Pepper Potts and Tony Stark have a kid together, which brings to mind the conversation at the beginning of the film where Iron Man said that he had a dream about having a child together and that it felt “so real”. However, if Gwyneth is correct, then it means that she was probably pregnant before Tony boarded the donut spaceship.
Maybe that would explain why she was so upset during the call, and Pepper did tell Tony that his dream was just in his head, but it’s probably better to believe in the actress that has already filmed her scenes for ‘Endgame’. If Tony ends up having a happy ending, then it would make sense that he and Pepper finally have a kid.
Furthermore, while explaining his dream to Pepper, he said that they had named their son Morgan and then asked her if she might be pregnant. In that regard, the Russo brothers took to Twitter to confirm that Tony was not having a vision about his future, but rather, it was wishful thinking. Therefore, the theories about their child being exactly like Tony dreamed can be scraped.
On the other hand, the MCU does not include scenes like that for no reason. It was not a comic relief moment or a shot that could hint at another movie. Therefore, there is a chance that Pepper was, in fact, pregnant like Tony wished for, but they might not have a son. Instead, they could have a daughter named Morgan. The Russos did state that while the dream was not a vision, it was “mysterious”.
Additionally, the name “Morgan” works great for both girls and boys, so it’s a fantastic name for a mystery child. Therefore, taking the scene, the statements from the Russos and Gwyneth Paltrow’s comments, it’s very likely that they will have a girl. Also, there is a chance that Tony could actually meet his daughter as an adult.
Some fans have been theorizing about this since Katherine Langford, better known for her role as Hannah Baker in Netflix’s ’13 Reason Why’, appeared as part of the cast of ‘Avengers: Endgame’. No one knew what part she would play in the upcoming film, but the actress recently posted a picture on her Instagram that gave people a hint.
Her hair was dyed red, almost strawberry blonde, and it combines perfectly with Pepper Potts’ coloring. Well, the one in earlier ‘Iron Man’ films. However, the question is how Katherine Langford could be playing an adult child of the Starks in ‘Endgame’, if Pepper has not even revealed her pregnancy to anyone.
Luckily, there are several ways this could happen, and the most popular theory states that Tony will meet his daughter in a time jump to the future. Thanks to the post-credits scene of ‘Ant-Man and the Wasp’ and some leaked photos of the reshoots for ‘Endgame’, many fans have speculated that time travel will play a huge part in the upcoming film.
The more time that passes, it seems likely that those theories might be correct. However, why would the Avengers or Tony need to go to the future if what they need to change is in the past? They have to go back into the MCU timeline to possibly obtain, destroy or hide the Infinity Stones that have popped up every once in a while.
Since one theory states that they might be time-traveling using the Quantum Realm and the time vortexes that Janet Van Dyne mentioned, they might end up in the future by mistake. They might also have to go to the future for some vital information. Moreover, the Time Stone has the ability to travel anywhere in time, so they could be using that instead.
While there are many ways that they could orchestrate a meeting between Tony and his daughter, it would be great for audiences to see what happens to the Stark legacy in the future. Morgan might have followed her father’s lead and become a female version of Iron Man. She might not be Iron Woman, but maybe something even cooler. The future should have better technology, after all.
Moreover, if Tony were to meet his daughter, then he would work ten times harder to save the world or perhaps he would be even more worried about making a mistake in the past that might erase her. That is an emotional load that could play out in interesting ways in ‘Endgame’, especially now that Tony Stark is not his normal, confident self.
Iron Man is definitely the kind of man that would sacrifice himself for the sake of his loved ones. Many have speculated that he could die in the next film, and if it means the safety of Pepper and his daughter, then he would do it. Robert Downey Jr.’s contract with Marvel ends after ‘Endgame’, but there has been no news regarding his departure from the MCU.
There is still hope that he will continue to play Iron Man in one way or another, but since he is the main superhero of the franchise, they have to give him an amazing farewell. Meeting his daughter would definitely be worth dying in the end. Of course, people might be jumping to conclusions just because Langford decided to change her hair. However, it would also be silly to ignore Gwyneth Paltrow’s comments.
Do you think Tony and Pepper might really have a daughter after all? If not, then what role is Katherine Langford playing? We cannot wait for the film anymore! If you liked this article, share it with your friends who will be with you at the premiere in April. See you next time!
