Plenty of fans have been jokingly referring to Captain America: Civil War as Avengers 2.5, since it boasts almost the entire Avengers lineup, introduces Chadwick Boseman’s Black Panther and Tom Holland’s Spider-Man, and includes villains and supporting characters both old and new. It’s…a lot. And it looks like there’s at least one more character to add to Marvel’s super-pile, as Gwyneth Paltrow has been confirmed to return as Iron Man pal Pepper Potts.

Empire (via The Wrap) confirmed that Paltrow was on set and in character for some recent Civil War reshoots, though her exact role in the film is unknown. She may have a mere cameo, or she could play a part in one of the post-credits sequences. Iron Man 3 was the last we saw of the business-minded brains behind Tony Stark’s operation, so it’s good to know that she’s back in the game.

Civil War features the full Marvel hero lineup — save for Thor and Hulk, who will appear together in Thor: Ragnarok. While Mark Ruffalo’s part in Civil War had been cut from the film due to a little overcrowding, recent comments from Anthony Mackie may indicate that the big green guy is appearing in the film after all.

(Deep breath) Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Anthony Mackie, Elizabeth Olsen, Jeremy Renner, Sebastian Stan, Don Cheadle, Paul Rudd, Paul Bettany, William Hurt and Emily Van Camp reprise their Marvel roles for Civil War, which also features the return of Frank Grillo’s Crossbones. Daniel Bruhl plays new enemy Baron Zemo in the film, which also features the debut of Boseman’s Black Panther and Holland’s Spider-Man.

And! Earlier today, Empire revealed the identity of Martin Freeman’s mysterious character, who has connections to Black Panther and Wakanda.

Captain America: Civil War hits theaters on May 6.
