If you've seen Avengers: Endgame, you may continue to read this article.
If you haven't, and you don't want to read spoilers, you should immediately exit out of this article, because I don't want you to yell at me.
I repeat, SPOILERS ARE AHEAD.
I'll put a few random pics and Instagram posts in the feed so you don't accidentally see something.
Okay, now that THOSE people are gone...let's cut to the chase.
Ironman is dead, and that sucks. I teared up, and I'm not someone that cries at movies.
And that gut-wrenching funeral scene at the end of the movie? It might be more than just The Avengers saying goodbye to their dear friend Tony Stark.
Sure, you see all of the characters in the Marvel Universe. But did you notice that random teenage kid that nobody immediately recognized? The one standing by himself? You know....this kid
That's Ty Simpkins.
You might recognize him as the kid that helps Tony Stark in Iron Man 3, although obviously he was much younger then. The potato gun kid.
So if you remember way back to that movie, in exchange for helping him out, Tony built the kid (his name is Harley) a bigger, badder, lab to tinker with stuff in. And then, he wasn't to be heard from again.
Well, not publicly. Ty has been to every MCU premiere since Iron Man 3, and then THERE HE IS at Tony Stark's funeral, and the thought is "Wait a minute, that dude's not an Avenger!"
Or is he?
There's a rumor floating around that Marvel may be setting us up for a NEW Iron Man....played by Ty Simpkins.
Personally, I think Iron Man should go away for a VERY long time. I just don't know that anyone can pull that role off quite as perfectly as Robert Downey, Jr.. and I'd hate to see a failed attempt blemish the franchise.
But, if they WERE to do a new Iron Man storyline, it'd be pretty intriguing to start with the potato gun kid.
Either way, we're probably MANY years away from that being a possibility. But what do you think? Would you support a re-boot of the Iron Man series?
