“Avengers: Endgame” gave us a proper swan song to 21 Marvel Cinematic Universe movies. One of the highlights in the movie was noticing familiar cameos. And that includes Harley Keener.
Who is Harley Keener? Well before we proceed, consider this your final warning as the following post contains heavy spoilers from the blockbuster film.
Many were left scratching their heads wondering who’s the mysterious kid that showed up at Tony Stark aka Iron Man’s funeral. It’s none other Harley Keener, who may be unrecognizable now that he’s a young adult.
Played by Ty Simpkins, we first saw Harley as a boy in “Iron Man 3”. In case you can’t remember, he helped Tony rebuild his Mark suit after Iron Man after the superhero was left stranded in Tennessee. After the battle in New York, the billionaire inventor not only gave the kid some advice on handling school bullies but also left a whole bunch of goodies in his garage.
Ty was only 11 when “Iron Man 3” came out in 2013. He’s now 17. “(It) was cool. He stayed in characters the whole time, but he was really nice, and he made it easy to work with him,” he previously talked about his experience on set with Robert Downey Jr.
In speaking with Entertainment Weekly, directors Anthony and Joe Russo explained why Harley appeared at the memorial service. “Clearly Tony had an effect on him,” Joe Russo said. We have a feeling that this isn’t the last time we’ve seen Harley. As in the case of Marvel, there are usually no coincidences.

The biggest forbidden when it comes to the latest Marvel movie, Avengers: Endgame is revealing the spoilers to the people who have not watched it!
Marvel fans have been pleading everyone not to spoil the latest movie, but it seems like one Hong Kong man didn’t care.
On the day the movie was released, many fans queued in front of the cinema waiting for their first-hand Endgame experience. It’s reported that a man in a white shirt exited the cinema and started revealing the spoilers LOUDLY at the entrance. OMG, other people were there just for this movie!
According to TVBS News, a few cinema goers were enraged as this man uncovered key spoilers, so they attacked him and beat him up to the point where his face was covered in blood!
Netizens commented that he “got what he deserved”, and they also “felt great seeing this”. Some people also speculated the credibility of this circulating photo, but several Netizens claimed that they were at a cinema in Causeway Bay, and they did hear someone revealing the spoilers at the entrance.
It’s not the best idea to beat people up to avenge the fans who have yet to watch this movie, but is there anything else that they can do to stop people from spreading spoilers?
We understand that it’s difficult to contain the excitement after watching Avengers: Endgame, and it’s absolutely fine to discuss this movie with your friends who have watched it, but please consider other people and let them enjoy their experience!

Avengers: Endgame surpassed all expectations and has gone on to break box office records and become the highest-grossing box office opening of all time.
Disney announced that the film had taken home $1.209 billion(RM4.96 billion) worldwide in its opening weekend, breaking the opening-day record of last year’s Avengers: Infinity War which took home $640.5 million(RM2.6 billion).
If that’s not enough, Box Office Mojo has stated the film took $1.015(RM4.19 billion) billion at the global box office in its opening weekend, meaning it is definitely the first film to join the billion-dollar club in its opening weekend.
This is the eighth Marvel Studios film to join that special group of films.
The following records were also taken home by the Mickey Mouse studio, which also owns huge properties such as the Star Wars franchise and its Pixar animation films.
Disney’s statement today claimed the film took home $350 million(RM1.4 billion) in domestic gross over Avengers: Infinity War at $257.6 million (RM1.06 billion) , with International gross at $859 million (RM3.5 billion) , beating The Fate of the Furious, which earned $443.1 million(RM1.83 billion) in non-U.S. ticket sales.
The film also made a domestic US single-day gross of $156.7 million (RM644 million) on Friday, while in China it made $107.8 million on its opening day, along with $330.5 million(RM1.36 billion) in its opening weekend there.
Endgame also has the biggest IMAX global debut ever at $91.5 million(RM378 million).
Video footage of a Shanghai doctor being handcuffed and taken for
questioning by police after a dispute with a patient has reignited a
debate about the often fiery relationship between medical professionals
and the public in China.
In the film, Zhao Xiaojing, a 48-year-old thoracic surgeon at Renji Hospital, can be seen tussling with officers before being wrestled to the ground, cuffed and taken away for questioning.
The incident happened on Wednesday after the husband of one of Zhao’s
patients apparently tried to jump the queue on behalf of his wife and
entered the doctor’s treatment room. When Zhao refused to see him and
asked the man to leave the situation turned ugly and the pair ended up
The police said in a statement issued on Friday that Zhao’s patient was a 52-year-old woman called Chen and her husband was a 60-year-old surnamed Han. Han was reported to have broken a rib in the scuffle, while Zhao suffered bruises to his arms and neck.
In the video, several other patients are heard criticising the
police’s strong-arm tactics and complaining about how they had travelled
from outside the city to see Zhao and would be unable to if he were
The doctor was taken to the nearby Tangqiao police station for questioning but released 15 minutes later so he could return to work. He later went back to the station to give a statement, news portal Thepaper.cn reported.
Police defended their use of force, saying that after being called to
the hospital Zhao refused to go with them for questioning on the
grounds he had patients to see.
They said they allowed him 20 minutes to arrange a replacement doctor
but when he still refused to co-operate after that time they resorted
to the use of handcuffs, which was in line with procedure.
The incident sparked debate online and in the press, with groups on both sides expressing their views.
In a statement issued on Saturday, the Chinese Medical
Doctor Association said doctor-patient conflicts should not be treated
like other civil disputes.
“White gowns and blue police uniforms are both the signs of trusted
professions. They should support and co-operate with each other,” it
“Respecting health care workers should not be just a slogan but demonstrated in law enforcement actions. Police should be discreet in their use of handcuffs on medical staff out of respect.”

Huang Bo, director of Tangqiao police station, was quoted in the
online news report as saying the use of handcuffs was legal, but “not
“How to balance law and reason, stubborn and flexible, is what we must reflect on and improve in our work,” he said.
Communist Party mouthpiece People’s Daily said on Weibo, China’s
Twitter-like platform, that both sides in the dispute had room to
“If the patient had an awareness of obeying rules, the doctor
understood law enforcement procedures, and officers sympathised with the
doctor’s hard work, the result wouldn’t have been like this.”
Doctors, unsurprisingly, voiced their support for their colleague.
“Why did the police handcuff the doctor? This is ridiculous!” wrote a surgeon on Dxy.cn, China’s top medical website.
“If every patient doesn’t queue up, won’t it be a mess? What’s wrong
with this doctor trying to maintain order in his workplace? I feel we,
as doctors, almost don’t have any basic rights.”
Another wrote: “The group most hurt by this incident is the doctors,
then the police officers and lastly the patients. I think it’s necessary
to punish this couple and make their names public.”
Not everyone agreed. On news portal 163.com a person wrote: “However
good a doctor you are, you can’t turn a blind eye to the law.”
“Everybody, including doctors, is equal in front of the laws. I support the police,” said someone on WeChat, China’s top messaging app.
The durian season is expected to begin as early as next month. Durians from Malaysia are already trickling into Singapore, though the best ones are yet to arrive.
Durian sellers The New Paper spoke to predict the season will be in full swing only sometime in June.
Mr Ooi Meng Lee, 57, owner of 211 House of Durian,
said: “The peak of the durian season this year will be in June. That is
when the quality of the durians will be the best.”
Echoing this assessment, the owner of Durian Culture, who
wanted to be known only as Ms Lim, said the season is divided into three
The first, the early harvest phase, is expected over much of the next two months.
Phase two may begin around mid-June and go on till August.
Ms Lim, 40, added: “I would recommend that durian lovers buy
from mid-June to August. The supply of durians is greater, which means
consumers get to choose better quality.”
After that comes phase three. Although durians will still be
harvested, Ms Lim said they are likely to have been on the trees for a
long time. The quality may no longer be so good.
Prices are naturally expected to fall with the increase in supply.
As for the types of the fruit entering the country, Mr Goh
Kwee Leng, 67, owner of Durian Empire by 717, said Singaporeans can
expect to see a huge variety from Malaysia next month, including Mao
Shan Wang, D13, D24 and XO durians.
He told TNP: “Mao Shan Wang durians usually fall from the trees first, whereas D24 ones drop slightly later.
