Avengers 4 will have many returning characters, and you may not have expected one to come from Iron Man 3.
A casting update to the movie has revealed that Ty Simpkins will return to this fold, who has not been seen after his role of Harley Keener in Iron Man 3. Keener is a sarcastic whiz kid who Stark had encountered after his suit is damaged. Keener helps him get it running and they become friends.
How this will affect the plot is unknown but a few are theorizing that this will have a lot to do with Stark passing his torch to Keener. While Simpkins is older, he may be young for this.
Simpkins has been busy since Iron Man 3 and played roles in Insidious: Chapter 2, Jurassic World and The Nice Guys. Would Avengers 4 introduce him to as a permanent part?
Simpkins will be happy to be back as during the filming of Iron Man 3, he had said that he idolizes Iron Man.
“Because he doesn’t have any superpowers,” Simpkins told EW. “The Hulk has an awesome superpower. He turns into this giant monster that can eliminate several dudes at once. Then Captain America can take out five bad guys just going like that” — he slices his arm through the air as if holding Cap’s most iconic accessory — “and throwing his shield. But then Iron Man — he can take out even more guys with those little missile things that come out of this shoulders. He can fly and he doesn’t have any superpowers. He’s smart. He has a suit, and it’s really cool.”
There is a lot to go before Avengers 4including the Avengers: Infinity War, which will hit theaters on May 4, 2018.
