Ty Simpkins from Iron Man 3, thinks he could Nova?

May 11th, 2013 by Irwin Fletcher Comments recently got a chance to speak with the young actor who plays Harley in Iron Man 3, Ty Simpkins, to discuss his role in the film. But Ty Simpkins had a scoop for them, he said that there’s a possibility that he could be the Marvel Comics hero, Nova. Not Richard Rider Novabut Sam Alexander the 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? Sounds a little far fetched……..
