Warning: Spoilers follow for Avengers: Endgame.

Katherine Langford was set to appear in Avengers: Endgame, but her appearance was cut from the film. Now we know who she was playing. Speaking with the Happy Sad Confused podcast (per /Film), directors Anthony and Joe Russo revealed that Langford (13 Reasons Why) was cast to play a teenage version of Morgan, Tony Stark and Pepper Potts’ daughter.

“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,” Joe Russo explained. “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.”

Anthony added that the test screenings made them see that the audience “didn’t feel an emotional association with the adult version of his daughter” and that it “wasn’t ringing to us and resonating with us on an emotional level.” As such, the scene was cut.
