Ironheart Plot and Cast
Ironheart will focus on Riri Williams, a brilliant Black girl inventor who creates a high-tech metal suit like Iron Man’s. Right now, there are no solid details about the show. However, in her initial comic run, Williams was a 15-year-old hailing from Chicago who scored an MIT engineering scholarship.
She eventually finds herself caught up in this universe’s superhero shenanigans after she uses some materials she swiped from campus to make her own iron suit. There will already be an established relationship with Shuri from the Black Panther sequel. It’s pretty likely that this character will show up in Ironheart in some capacity.
Coming to the cast, the actors that have been confirmed to appear include Dominique Thorne, Anthony Ramos, Harper Anthony, Manny Montana, Alden Ehrenreich, and Lyric Ross. Further details are expected to be revealed soon.
