Comicbook.com recently caught up with the young actor who plays Harley in Iron Man 3 to discuss his role in the film and surprisingly Ty Simpkins said that there's a possibility that he could be the Marvel Comics hero, Nova. No not original Nova 'Richard Rider' but 'Sam Alexander' his son and current Nova in Marvel NOW!.

“Well, I actually never thought about that but we did read an article. Have you ever heard about the comic book Nova?” Simpkins asked. “We read an article about how Harley might be my middle name, and Keener could be my mom’s maiden name, and my dad could have joined the Nova Corps. Then my real name’s Richie and I actually figure it out because my mom gets killed by an alien, then I figure out that my dad joined the Nova Corps, and I join the Nova Corps and I become Nova.”


So what do you think? You think Ty knows what he is talking about or is he getting caught up in internet speculation? Comment below and let me know!



Iron Man 3 (stylized onscreen as Iron Man Three) is a 2013 American superhero film featuring the Marvel Comics character Iron Man, produced by Kevin Feige of Marvel Studios and distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures.1 It is the sequel to Iron Man and Iron Man 2, and the seventh installment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, being the first major release in the franchise since the crossover film The Avengers, and the third installment in the Iron Man film series. Shane Black directed a screenplay he co-wrote with Drew Pearce, which uses concepts from the "Extremis" story arc by Warren Ellis. Robert Downey, Jr. reprises his role as the title character, with Gwyneth Paltrow and Don Cheadle reprising their roles as Pepper Potts and James Rhodes, respectively. Jon Favreau, who directed the first two films, serves as an executive producer and reprises his role as Happy Hogan. Guy Pearce, Rebecca Hall, Stephanie Szostak, James Badge Dale, and Ben Kingsley round out the film's principal cast.

Good find, sending to Main, but actors don't catch up with news sites, it's the other way around.
TheAbomination - 5/11/2013, 8:22 AM
No. Just.... ....no.
TonyChu - 5/11/2013, 8:23 AM
I hope they don't go with the kid version of Nova. I want Richard Rider.
SpectacularJoShFest - 5/11/2013, 8:24 AM
Is just a kid giving his opinion...I don't see why everyone is taking this so seriously.
TonyChu - 5/11/2013, 8:24 AM
And Mary Elizabeth Winstead is ugly? Bitch please! She is gorgeous and is a good actress.
Minato - 5/11/2013, 8:24 AM
@White I like your idea but constantly spamming it will turn people off to the notion. IDK how anyone can call her ugly especially if you've seen SPVTW. A lot of people are choosing actors in their mid 30s early 40s to play superheroes and they are going to run into the same problem that RDJ has.
HellsHammer - 5/11/2013, 8:25 AM
WOAH! What a coincidence that of all the sheds Tony decides to go to its another Marvel hero!!!!
Give me a break. No thanks!
avengers72 - 5/11/2013, 8:25 AM
Got marks aproval. I think it could have a connection
rocky - 5/11/2013, 8:27 AM
I'll back up WHITE
I fell in love Mary Elizabeth Winstead ever since I first saw her in Sky High


As for this kid? NO. His character can become Nova in the future but not him as a kid.
HellsHammer - 5/11/2013, 8:29 AM
Obnoxious [frick]ing advertisement before the video too!
PLUSH - 5/11/2013, 8:31 AM
No.
Gyasiman - 5/11/2013, 8:35 AM
Haha I think this would be awesome
marvel72 - 5/11/2013, 8:36 AM
no please no,chris pine should be cast as the man called nova.
mctrinket - 5/11/2013, 8:36 AM
No.
Ashdm - 5/11/2013, 8:38 AM
Couple years down the line, when he's older and if he's a decent enough actor for it, I could buy into that. Great way to tie the character into the MCU
MBZ1993 - 5/11/2013, 8:41 AM
I SMELL SITCOM!!!!!!!!
untipoconboina - 5/11/2013, 8:47 AM
Please don't.
MrMartinMarvel - 5/11/2013, 8:50 AM
White just stop your constant spamming is annoying as [frick].
AlanWarlock - 5/11/2013, 8:52 AM
Eva Longoria for the Wasp. 'Nuff said.
rorywilliams - 5/11/2013, 8:54 AM
Given that the new Nova (the one he's describing with the absent dad in the Nova Corps) is mixed-race and his mom is Mexican, I'm gonna guess no.
KarlRobinofEarth2 - 5/11/2013, 8:55 AM
I'm down for that!
Minato - 5/11/2013, 8:57 AM
Eva Longoria is 38 and cant act MEW is 28 and can
Inhuman - 5/11/2013, 9:00 AM
How about.......NO!!!! Give me Richard Rider
2gold - 5/11/2013, 9:08 AM
Give the kid props, he could pulled out a lot of comic book characters and he went for Nova.
Kakarot - 5/11/2013, 9:11 AM
Jesus, it's a kid just going along with some internet speculation. There's no evidence that Marvel has assigned him as the character, it's a long stretch the way he even puts it. Everyone needs to calm down.
novamaster12 - 5/11/2013, 9:17 AM
ok guys 1. this kid cant be both rich or sam (well maybe sam because [frick] him)and 2 to this site's admins.sam is not richard's son!!!! no is a son of another nova corpm member not rich's dame it
AmazingFantasy - 5/11/2013, 9:26 AM
[frick]in NO
CaptainChunk - 5/11/2013, 9:27 AM
If I'm not mistaken, doesn't Peter quills mother die by an alien in the comics? Maybe this kid is trying to throw everyone offa d is actually supposed to be the young Peter quill
superotherside - 5/11/2013, 9:31 AM
Ehh, done properly I wouldn't mind a cameo of some sort. IDK. As long as they have Richard Rider I don't care. I think he could bring something to the role of Sam though. Still the kid from the comics is sometimes annoying, although not as annoying as I thought he'd be. Still we want Richard Rider! He's the most important! If we get a good Richard Rider I honestly wouldn't care if this kid tagged along.
Franshu - 5/11/2013, 9:33 AM
Meh, why not?
PYM90 - 5/11/2013, 9:36 AM
Holy crap..He very well might be young peter quill.
1. Guardians takes place about 30 years in the future.
2. He lives in a small rural area with his mother.
3. His dad left to get "scratchers" 6 years ago. (That may just be a story his mom told him)
4. He kinda looks like a little peter/ chris pratt.
5. He's smart and got a taste for being a hero from tony stark.

I am not saying it's true, but it seems like it could be.
PYM90 - 5/11/2013, 9:38 AM
6. And he seemed very interested in the aliens from the avengers.
kemuael - 5/11/2013, 9:39 AM
i could see him being NOVA if he was about in his early 20's
Spyder - 5/11/2013, 9:46 AM
I like the theory of him being young Peter Quill. Why crush the kids dreams of being a superhero?
superherofan21 - 5/11/2013, 9:54 AM
Sorta makes sense.
I'd like to see it happen. Although, they'd have to make him older if he does become Nova. But some flashbacks with this kid would be nice. He was great in IM3. He seems to be the first kid actor who works WELL in a serious movie. Well, I thought so, anyway...
xStarLordx - 5/11/2013, 9:59 AM
Im okay with it.
