Got a chance to check out the first look at Black Panther: Wakanda Forever in action? Actress Dominique Thorne appeared in this clip to prepare for her role in Black Panther 2 and her subsequent appearance in the Disney Plus Marvel series Ironheart.
On the Ironheart front, photos from the set surfaced earlier this week. Because they’re spoilers, I won’t say anything about them other than that they’re costumed. A “genius inventor who creates the most advanced suit of armour since Iron Man,” according to Marvel, is the narrator of Ironheart. Aside from that logline, there are a number of comics that hint at what the series may entail.
What is Marvel’s Ironheart About?
MIT offers a scholarship to Riri Williams, an 11-year-old genius, in the comics. Iron Man-style armour is being constructed from materials she steals from around campus. Teenage Tony Stark fanatic reverse-engineers one of Tony’s suits and wears it around town.
Following an investigation by MIT, Williams decides to leave the university. During a test run, she apprehends two escaped convicts, but her suit gets damaged and she returns home to repair it. It is at this point that none other than Tony Stark shows up and grants her wish to become a superhero.
A drive-by shooting takes the lives of Riri’s best friend and stepfather when she is still a college student. “The armour that Riri has been trying to build around herself ever since, both literally and figuratively,” Marvel says, is the inspiration for the name Ironheart.
