Black Panther 2 Rumor Teases Ironheart Suit Action
Ever since Tony Stark bit the dust in Avengers: Endgame, fans are wondering who might be next to fill the iron suit-sized hole in the MCU. Of course, the first person that comes to mind is Don Cheadle’s war machine, but he already seems to have his identity locked up. The answer actually lies in a new hero to come: Dominique Thorne’s Riri Williams, aka Ironheart.
In the comics, Riri is a character who created his own Iron Man suit in his garage, using an old, outdated Stark suit and parts stolen from his college campus. She becomes Ironheart and ends up helping Iron Man during Civil War 2becomes a member of The Champions and somehow becomes the Queen of Latvia.
The character has been confirmed to make his first appearance in the upcoming film Black Panther: Wakanda Forever before directing his own Disney+ series, Stone heart. Fans should be prepared for Riri to become a big part of the MCU in the future.
The character’s first performance will be important to the general public; first impressions and all that. So what will Ironheart’s entry into wakanda forever?
Thanks to a reliable insider, it looks like fans should expect her to not only debut as Riri Williams, but dress up as well.
Black Panther features an Ironheart suit
In response to a fan’s tweet asking if Dominique Thorne’s Riri William would dress in Black Panther: Wakanda Foreverinitiated Lizzie’s Hill from The Cosmic Circus gave a definitive answer:
“She dresses, yes.”
Marvel Studios has only confirmed that Riri Williams will be in the film, but it’s unclear if she’ll be donning her Ironheart outfit.
However, it now looks like fans can expect new armor to come to the MCU sooner rather than later, but it’s important to note that this is still rumored and unconfirmed information. .
Thorne recently posted on Instagram, celebrating her photo dressing on Black Panther: Wakanda Foreverwith a caption telling fans that she “will see [them] in November.”
His next stop will be filming his Disney+ series Stone heartwhich is expected to start production later this year.
Ironheart costume debut
Fans will likely be pleased to know that they might not have to wait long to see Riri Williams decked out in her superhero attire.
Recently, scenes were filmed at MIT with stars such as Dominque Thorne, Letitia Wright and Danai Gurira. Given that in the comics, Riri steals parts for her costume there, could her construction of this new armor have caught the attention of Shuri and Okoye for some reason?
If the hero does, in fact, get their proper costume, that would also indicate that Ironheart will be involved in some action. Perhaps fans will see Riri take on the Atlanteans alongside other Wakandans.
After his feature film debut and his solo series, what’s next for the character? Although it is not confirmed, there is a good chance that she plays an important role in Armor Wars, given his shiny new armor. It will also give Riri the chance to have a mentor in James Rhodes, where he can adequately pass on the torch that Tony once carried.
