Riri Williams was inspired to be a superhero by Marvel’s legendary Tony Stark. She wanted to make a difference, so she built her own suit of advanced armor and now leads a life of adventure, crime-fighting, and humanitarianism as the superhero called Ironheart. Ironheart is a powerful Super Hero who uses her advanced armor to fight crime and help people. She is always ready to help others, no matter what the situation may be. The show will premiere late next year on Disney+ as part of phase 5 of the MCU and it has already been cast.
Ironheart Marvel Cast
The initial cast of the season Ironheart has been revealed:
- Dominique Thorne as Ironheart
- Lyric Ross
- Anthony Ramos
- Harper Anthony
- Manny Montana
- Alden Ehrenreich
- Shea Couleé
- Zoe Terakes
- Regan Aliyah
Dominique Thorne (Ironheart) has been revealed to be cast in the series’ announcement after Marvel Studios offered her the role without auditioning. In February 2022, Anthony Ramos joined the series in an undisclosed “key role”. He’s the series’ main villain. Later that month, a young actress named Lyric Ross was cast to play Williams’ best friend. By the end of the summer, newcomers Harper Anthony and Manny Montana joined the cast in undisclosed roles.
However, fans should be in for surprise considering the secrecy that Marvel has maintained with their recent releases. The Ironheart series is set to release on Disney+ in late 2023 succeeding a slew of different releases, both films and series.
At just 11 years old, Riri Williams is a genius with incredible abilities who was offered a scholarship to MIT. As a college student, she steals items around campus to build a superhero suit of armor. (The young woman is a huge fan of Tony Stark and reverse-engineers one of his suits).
As she tests her suit, Riri comes across two prison escapees and gets into a confrontation. Upon returning home she is visited by Tony Stark who gives her the official nod of becoming a superhero ‘Ironheart’.
Future of Ironheart
Ironheart is set to play a huge role in the Marvel Cinematic Universe as she is one of the most important characters in the comics. Ironheart was a prominent member of the Avengers team as well as the Young Avengers in the marvel comic lore. This is exactly why fans are anticipating her role in phase 5 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The series will give us a deeper insight into the character’s MCU origins and her future in the marvel ethos.
