The news comes following much speculation that the Irish star would be making an appearance on the big Marvel screen, a move which will comes as no shock to his former co-star Colin Farrell.
Farrell recently heaped praise on the young actor, saying “It’s really incredible what he has achieved in a few years.”
“Anyone who knows Barry can testify to the fact that he has gone through a certain amount of experience in his own personal life.
“He has experienced a certain amount of desolation in his personal life, in his past, things that I would find in my contemplation of such loss, completely insurmountable.”
Huge congratulations to Barry!
