Young actor Ty Simpkins who played as Harley Keener in Iron Man 3 is reportedly making a return in Avengers 4. The surprising announcement comes from IMDb’s recent tweet but there’s no official confirmation yet.
The untitled Avengers 4 already features various main and supporting superhero characters as the film will be the end of Phase 4 under MCU. The addition of another cast doesn’t explain if Simpkins’ Harley Keener will just have a comedic presence or some prominence in the film.
In Iron Man 3, Simpkins’ character Harley Keener was Tony Stark’s annoying little friend who eventually manages to get the superhero back on his feet and help him face his anxiety. Keener who’s also shown to be an inventor is later gifted with computers and new equipment by Tony Stark in the threequel.
Since then, there has been no mention of the kid in the MCU. It would be interesting to see how Marvel plans to bring back the character once again before wrapping phase 4. But many a time, casting announcement from IMDb turn out to be misleading so fans are advised to take this with a grain of salt.
Earlier this week, rumors grew that Hayley Atwell could have filmed a cameo for Avengers 4 due to her recent Instagram post. As of now, it will be hard for fans to digest these announcements as the untitled project is still under wraps as Marvel Studios hasn’t even revealed the film’s title yet.
Avengers 4 filming continues in Atlanta. Recently, a casting call also revealed requirement of extras for a funeral scene. The film is set to hit the big screens on May 3rd, 2019.
