(Below you’ll find some pretty massive spoilers for “Avengers: Endgame”)“Avengers: Endgame” is the biggest earner ever at the box office, and it had a budget to match — it’s easily the most expensive movie to date in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Which is actually kind of curious, because despite also being the longest MCU film it really has significantly less action than the three other “Avengers” films.It’s likely that we can chalk up that higher budget/fewer set pieces discrepancy to the price of assembling such an enormous cast full of big stars. Sometimes it felt like every major character who has ever appeared in the MCU showed up at some point or other, and it’s not cheap to get so many big names together at the same time.But “Avengers: Endgame” didn’t just bring back the big stars. A bunch of minor characters also got to return in some surprising ways. But maybe none were more surprising than this one character who appeared for only a brief moment at the very end of the movie.Also Read: Here's Why Black Widow Didn't Get a Memorial At the End of 'Avengers: Endgame'The character in question is a teenage boy who appears with all the other mourners at the funeral of Tony Stark. In this shot the camera pans across a bunch of people after Pepper Potts (Gwyneth Paltrow) sent the original mini arc reactor that Tony crafted back in “Iron Man” into the lake. For the most part all the people we see are major characters who have shown up in the MCU recently, except for this one kid who’s standing there alone looking at the ground.You’ll be forgiven if you don’t recognize this guy, because he looked a lot different the last time he appeared in the MCU. That character is Harley Keener, played by Ty Simpkins, who you’ll remember from “Iron Man 3” as the kid from Tennessee who helps Tony (Robert Downey Jr) recharge his suit while he investigates a mysterious death. “Iron Man 3” came out way back in 2013, and Simpkins was just a kid at the time, and he’s grown up a bunch since then.Here’s what the character Harley Keener looked like in “Iron Man 3”:So, yeah, no shame in not being sure about that one — Simpkins looks completely different now than he did back then.Also Read: 'Avengers: Endgame' - What Happened With Loki and the Tesseract?It’s very interesting also that they would bring him back at all — a character that has not been mentioned at all since that movie six years ago. Is Harley Keener coming back to the MCU? I guess we’ll find out.Read original story ‘Avengers: Endgame’ – Who Is That Random Kid at the End of the Movie? At TheWrap
A new lawsuit accusing Weinstein of sexual assault claims that the producer said Lawrence won her Oscar thanks to an affair with him.
Here are five fascinatingly different versions of famous Disney movies that almost came to pass, only to be consigned to the idea bin of history. Disney had been trying to make a version of Hans Christian Andersen’s fairytale ‘The Snow Queen’ since the late 1930s, but every attempt had run aground. In 2008, the project was revived again and even had some cast – ‘Will & Grace’ star Megan Mullally was onboard as Elsa (then a flat-out villain) and Josh Gad, who did eventually play snowman Olaf in the finished film.
"This is just like prom!" said the 'Star Wars' actress, set up with 27-year-old Tom Coleman, who now recounts their wild night, which included waltzing with Debbie Reynolds and ended at Richard Dreyfuss' apartment.
To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the classic film, the stars have agreed to present best picture on the Feb. 26 telecast.
Andrew Garfield and Ryan Reynolds’ kiss was easily the highlight of the entire Golden Globes ceremony, as both actors took solace in each other after missing out in their respective Best Actor categories.

Emma Stone has spoken about her own experiences of Hollywood sexism, revealing that directors she’s worked with have given lines she came up with on-set to her male co-stars. The ‘La La Land’ star made the remarks in an interview with Rolling Stone.
The return of a heavy-breathing dark lord, first contact like we’ve never seen it before, a humanitarian scrapping with a CGI bear, a 20-storey Paul Rudd – it’s safe to say that in 2016, we’ve seen it all.
Rather conspicuously released just prior to awards season, Martin Scorsese’s new epic ‘Silence’ is getting some serious early buzz from critic screenings. There are no reviews yet, as they’re under embargo, but some US critics were unable to hold in their praise, dropping some plaudits on Twitter. Village Voice scribe Bilge Ebiri wrote: I saw SILENCE twice today. First time, I was absorbed, impressed, moved. Second time, I was in tears. One of Scorsese's greatest films.
It’s a running joke throughout the none-more-meta superhero comedy that budget and contracts prevent Deadpool from interacting with his more A-list Marvel stablemates – Deadpool himself frequently references X-Men that Fox didn’t allow us to see. Yes, the same turbine-powered mobile aircraft carrier as used by the Avengers and S.H.I.E.L.D.. Fox weren’t allowed to reference the carrier by name, and the design had to be tweaked a little, but ‘Deadpool’ visual artist Emmanuel Shiu confirmed the connection.
To play the middleweight champ who broke his neck in a car accident at the height of his powers in the 1980s, Teller says he had to lose 20lbs and 13% body fat over a 7-8 month period simply to “look like a boxer”, and that was just the start of it he admits. On the flip side of Teller’s startling transformation is co-star Aaron Eckhart’s weight swing the other way. The usually trim and handsome ‘The Dark Knight’ star shaved his head and GAINED 40lbs to play Vinny’s trainer Kevin Rooney, a feat perhaps even more difficult than Teller’s because he had to lose it again instantly for his next role.

Disney’s most conceited, muscle-bound narcissist Gaston is set to be even more musky and macho in the forthcoming live-action version of ‘Beauty and the Beast’. According to composer Alan Menken, there will be lines that were dropped from the original animation, as created by his late collaborator, the legendary lyricist and playwright Howard Ashman. “In Gaston, we had a treasure trove of lyrics that Howard [Ashman] had written that we did not put in the movie,” Menken told Entertainment Weekly.
