The youngsters are taking over the MCU as each of them makes their debut in the franchise. Dominique Throne will finally be suiting up as Riri Williams, also known as Ironheart, but when will she arrive and how will her appearance change things up?
When is Ironheart Coming to the MCU?
Ahead of her titular series in 2023, Ironheart, Riri Williams will be making her MCU debut on Black Panther: Wakanda Forever played by Dominique Thorne. She is neither from Wakanda or Talocan but she hails from Chicago.
Riri Williams will be taking flight as Ironheart in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, presumably coming from the facility that T'Challa and Shuri opened in the end of Black Panther.
She is a genius engineer who invented her own suit much like Tony Stark as she makes her own path to being a superhero. What makes it exciting is that she will be working with Shuri, another genius around the same age.
The 19-year-old student will be taking part in the sequel before her very own series. Ironheart is slated to be the 11th MCU series to arrive on Disney Plus coming in late 2023 with six episodes lined-up. There is no definite release date yet for the show but it is currently under production.
Dominique Thorne will headline Ironheart as Riri Williams, the titular hero, and she will be joined by Anthony Ramos as Parker Robbins a.k.a. The Hood, Jim Rash as the Dean of MIT, and Lyric Ross as the best friend of Williams.
Manny Montana, Shea Couleé, Alden Ehrenreich, Zoe Terakes, Shakira Barrera, Sonia Denis, Regan Aliyah, Rashida Olayiwola, Paul Calderón, and Harper Anthony are also joining the cast of Ironheart in undisclosed roles.
Riri Williams will debut in the MCU as she takes flight in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, and her very own series, Ironheart, will be premiering in late 2023.
