Gwyneth Paltrow revealed that she was unaware about the existence of the Hawkeye series.
Academy Award-winning actress Gwyneth Paltrow has been part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe since the beginning. She made her debut in the franchise in Jon Favreau’s Iron Man in 2008 as Pepper Potts. In total, she appeared in seven films in the MCU, including Iron Man 2, The Avengers, Iron Man 3, Spider-Man: Homecoming, Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame.
Interestingly enough, despite her role in several entries in the MCU, Gwyneth Paltrow is often unaware which film is which. Also, beyond the films she’s involved with, she seems unaware of the ongoing projects within the franchises. In the case for her Avengers co-star Jeremy Renner’s standalone event series Hawkeye, it’s all news to her.
On her official Instagram story, Gwyneth Paltrow responded to a follower’s question about whether or not she’s catching up with Hawkeye on Disney Plus, to which she replied with the following:
Beyond her work as an actress, whether it’d be in the MCU or other films, Gwyneth Paltrow is a very busy individual. She is a prominent businesswoman that owns Goop, a lifestyle and wellness company. She also has authored numerous cookbooks. It’s not that surprising that she’s not as invested in the ongoing franchise, given her busy schedule on other endeavors. Perhaps she will give Hawkeye a shot sometime in the future.
Here is the synopsis for Hawkeye:
Former Avenger Clint Barton has a seemingly simple mission: get back to his family for Christmas. Possible? Maybe with the help of Kate Bishop, a 22-year-old archer with dreams of becoming a Super Hero. The two are forced to work together when a presence from Barton’s past threatens to derail far more than the festive spirit.
Hawkeye stars Jeremy Renner, Hailee Steinfeld, Tony Dalton, Fra Free, Brian d’Arcy James, Aleks Paunovic, Piotr Adamczyk, Linda Cardellini, Simon Callow, Vera Farmiga and Alaqua Cox. Florence Pugh is expected to return in her Black Widow role.
The first two episodes of Hawkeye are now available to stream on Disney Plus, with new episodes dropping on Wednesdays.
