The spoiler time limit for Avengers: Endgame might be up according to directors Joe and Anthony Russo, but that doesn't mean we're going to stuff them straight into this opening paragraph. So if you want to know more about what actress Katherine Langford was intended to do in the movie, read on below...

Talking on the Happy Sad Confused to Josh Horowitz, the directors spilled the beans on Langford's planned role, which ended up on the cutting room floor. Langford was cast last October in Endgame, and we now know that she played a future version of Tony Stark's daughter in the film, a girl called Morgan. The sequence was designed to take place when Tony snapped with the Infinity Stones in his gauntlet and transported to a metaphysical "way station" where he'd meet the older version of Morgan.

"The intention was that his future daughter, because these films are dealing with magic, his future daughter forgave him and sort of gave him peace to go," says Joe. "And the idea felt resonant. But it was just too many ideas in an overly complicated movie." Test screening audiences agreed, and were confused by the addition. "What we realized about it was we didn’t feel an emotional association with the adult version of his daughter. So it wasn’t ringing to us and resonating with us on an emotional level." Instead, we have Pepper Potts letting Tony know it's okay to move on.

So bad news for Langford, then, but probably the right move for the movie. For more on Avengers: Endgame, you can listen to our Spoiler Special Podcast on the film (this is the looong Empire team only edition, and interviews with the filmmakers will follow in due course).
