Our first look at Riri in action, plus The Hood.
Ironheart, the MCU solo series about new hero Riri Williams, has been seen in action for the first time in brand new footage.
Revealed at D23 2022 to just fans in the room, an early look at the show saw protagonist Riri Williams, a student at MIT, talking into what appeared to be a high-tech necklace. She's clearly a tech-centric hero, and can be seen making things at school. She's breifly seen in her Ironheart suit of armour.
Joining Dominique Thorne, who plays Riri, is In The Heights lead actor Anthony Ramos, who plays Parker Robbins, a friend of Riri. Fans of the comics will know him better as the supervillain The Hood. In the show it seems he's not quite a villain but certainly not a good guy. It's said that he watches out for his friends through his magical dark arts.
Ironheart will give center stage to Dominique Thorne as Williams – but she'll make her MCU debut in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever this year. Chinaka Hodge (Snowpiercer) is head writer on the show, and Solo's Alden Ehrenreich will also have a role to play.
Ironheart was introduced in Marvel's comics back in 2016, and, when Tony Stark could no longer be Iron Man, Riri stepped into his armored shoes with an advanced, high-tech suit she built herself. While it's not clear exactly how the MCU version will work, you find out all about her comic book backstory in our explainer.
