Last year it was announced 13 Reasons Why actress Katherine Langford had joined the cast of Avengers: Endgame.
Fast forward to two weeks ago and those waiting to see Langford appear in Avengers where left disappointed as the actress never graced the big screen.
Directors Joe and Anthony Russo revealed to Josh Horowitz on the Happy, Sad, Confused Podcast that Langford was actually cast as the older version of Tony Stark’s daughter Morgan Stark. She was meant to have a big scene with Tony after he snapped the gauntlet, similar to the way Thanos did with a young Gamora.
“There was an idea that we had that Tony was going to go into the metaphysical way station that Thanos goes in when he snapped his fingers. And that there was going to be a future version of his daughter in that way station.”
The scene was to comfort Tony after his sacrafice, letting him know everything would be ok.
“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. And the idea felt resonant. But it was just too many ideas in an overly complicated movie.”
Sadly, the scene ended up on the cutting room floor as test audiences were confused with an older Morgan appearing.
“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.”
It’s a shame Langford never appeared, however it does leave her open to other roles withing the Marvel Cinematic Universe going forward.
