Filming on the untitled fourth Avengers film is currently underway, and while there's still plenty we don't know regarding the film, IMDB seems to suggest an Iron Man 3 actor is joining the Marvel Comics-based flick, as the site has reported that Ty Simpkins has joined the project.
The news of Simpkins' casting comes on the heels of a report that a casting call suggested a major death was likely in the upcoming film, with many speculating that Simpkins could be reprising his role as Harley Keener to pay his respects to Tony Stark. And while that is entirely plausible, especially given the contracts of the main Avengers are nearing their end, it's all merely speculation at this point. Still, the addition of Simpkins to the cast is sure to please many that have been eager for Marvel to bring him back as Harley Keener.
It's also worth noting that while IMDB can be edited by users, the news was revealed through their official Twitter account, much as it was when they announced that Letitia Wright’s Shuri, Danai Gurira’s Okoye, and Winston Duke’s M’Baku were all set to return for Avengers: Infinity War.
