What to know

Ironheart is set to take Iron Man’s place in the Marvel Cinematic Universe

Ironheart is an upcoming superhero TV series produced by Marvel Studios for Disney. The series is based on the comic book character created by Brian Michael Bendis in 2016. The character was first introduced into the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever as a brilliant student at MIT, Riri Williams, who is taken to Wakanda after she invents a vibranium detector. There she develops her first supersuit, becoming Ironheart. The character then gets her own series, created by Chinaka Hodge, who also acts as showrunner. The series is part of the MCU’s Phase Five and sets the stage for the young Riri to take over Tony Stark (aka Iron Man)’s role in the MCU. 

Riri Williams (aka Ironheart) is played by Dominique Thorne (If Beale Street Could Talk). Anthony Ramos plays Parker Robbins (aka The Hood), a Marvel villain who becomes a demon with terrible power when he pulls up his hood. Sasha Baron Cohen (Borat) appears as Mephisto, and the rest of the cast is rounded out by Alden Ehrenreich, Lyric Ross, and Manny Montana.
