Avengers Endgame: Who's The Kid At The End?

Warning: We're talking Avengers: Endgame spoilers!

The world is seeing Avengers: Endgame in record numbers, bringing the final installment of the Marvel Cinematic Universe's Infinity Saga to a close. Still, though, there are many questions to be answered. And that's before you consider what happens from here in the MCU. We know some of the movies still to come, but how will Marvel Studios top what it has already done? Warning: The following contains spoilers for Avengers: Endgame.

While most of the questions you have will likely be answered with time, there's some we can solve right now, whether it's if there was a post-credits scene or what the ending of the film means. However, there's yet another question--a minor one, but still--that is ready to be answered.

Toward the end of the film, during Iron Man's (Robert Downey Jr.) funeral, many of those he's has known throughout the first decade of the MCU are seen, from his fellow Avengers to the Guardians of the Galaxy, to even friends like Aunt May (Marisa Tomei) and Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson). There was one face in the crowd you might not have recognized, though: that of a teenage boy. At a glance, you may have dismissed him as being Peter Parker (Tom Holland), but the answer is actually a really nice Easter Egg.

No Caption Provided

The boy is Harley Keener (Ty Simpkins). You should remember him as Tony Stark's kid sidekick in Iron Man 3. In the 2013 film, Tony winds up in Tennessee after an attack by the Mandarin (Ben Kingsley), where he befriends Harley. The kid then helps him track down the Mandarin and plays a big role in helping Tony cope with the PTSD he's suffering from due to the fallout of the first Avengers film.

Harley was not seen or mentioned in the MCU after Iron Man 3, but including him in Tony's funeral is a very nice touch--and one that shows the impact Stark had on the young man. In fact, now that he's growing up, perhaps Harley could be a candidate to become the next Iron Man. That probably won't happen, but what a fun twist it would be. Regardless, the mystery is solved.

Avengers: Endgame is in theaters now. Made sure to check out GameSpot's review of the film, as well as an accounting of everyone who dies, and a deep dive into figuring out Dr. Strange's plan between Infinity War and Endgame.

A completely unnecessary bit in a move that had far more serious and immediate issues. I would much rather they took the time to check the storyline before filming began than adding these obscure "cameos."

When you think you’re clever with your spoiler warnings but still spoil crap with your story titles.

Time to drop this site.

@Sindred: There being a child in the movie is not a spoiler.

Quit putting unknown potential spoiler information in the goddamned title. Let me see the fn movie before you tell me about parts of it. Could you give me a few DAYS, at least? Aholes.

I watched the movie but this title still infuriates me. A spoiler isn't ruining a major plot point. A spoiler is telling someone something they didn't know. This is a spoiler title. Shame on you.

@mos_skeeto: You’re angry because GS’s headline mentions a kid, without including any contextual info? It’s not “Who was that kid at Tony Stark’s funeral?” It threaded the line between not being a spoiler for those who haven’t seen the movie and being a clue to those who have seen it but have questions could find the answer inside.

@zmanbarzel: Don't even bother, man. These people just want to be angry, but they're too dumb to find something worth being angry about.

@zmanbarzel: I would argue that stating a fact at the end of the movie, important or not, contextual or not, is a spoiler. I watched the movie last night, but had I didn't, I may have sat there wondering when a kid is going to show up.

@brandsome: Yet you keep coming back to it for what looks like the past two years. You know what I do with websites I think are trash? I don’t visit them.
