Ironheart

The basic premise of Marvel’s Ironheart revolves around the story of the young, intelligent Riri Williams. Riri is a Black girl inventor with a knack for creating different techy things. She is so good, in fact, that she was able to make her very own version of the Iron Man suit.

If the series follows the original storyline of the comic book, Riri Williams is a 15-year-old from Chicago who earned an engineering scholarship at MIT. Upon entering the school, she soon finds a way to sneak out materials to create her own Iron Man suit. Because of this, she catches Tony Stark’s eye, and he turns his attention to her to recruit her for his cause. Tony Stark also becomes Riri’s mentor as he teaches her how to build an improved version of her first suit. Riri also creates her own J.A.R.V.I.S, which she calls N.A.T.A.L.I.E., after her childhood best friend who was killed during a drive-by shooting. Riri supported Tony during the second Civil War and took some of his responsibilities when he was injured, but once Tony recovered, Riri became a part of the next generation of Marvel superheroes called the Champions.

Ironheart will make her first appearance in the second Black Panther film, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, which may help us better understand her role in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

There is still no trailer for Ironheart as of writing, but Marvel Entertainment released a video introducing Ironheart, aka Riri Willimas, to the world. It tells us a quick version of her origin story and how Riri eventually became Ironheart. You can watch the video here:
