Ironheart is confirmed to premiere in the fall of next year on Disney+ as part of the MCU’s Multiverse Saga in Phase 5. Teenage genius inventor Riri Williams (If Beale Street Could Talk star Dominique Thorne) is making her way to the MCU sooner rather than later. Promo art and the recent teaser trailer of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever have shown that Riri will have a role of sorts to play before her upcoming Disney+ series. As the cast continues to grow and filming begins, Marvel Studios is trying its absolute best to keep spoilers and such to a minimum.
Try as they might prevent these sorts of things, the tabloids are quick to shoot some photos. Right down below are some first-look set images of Riri’s next armor and Anthony Ramos (In the Heights and Hamilton star) as one of the series’ new antagonists. If you wish to look away and stay spoiler-free until the first trailer or Wakanda Forever, now’s your chance to click off.
Riri Williams’ Next Mark Armor
Still there? Good. Now, first up is a batch of photos surrounding the next MK armor which looks to almost resemble her first suit from INVINCIBLE IRON MAN (2015) #7.
The practical suit is a very nice touch. For compassion, here’s a look at Riri Williams’ first Ironheart costume from the comics.
In her comic book debut, Riri made her suit using stolen material from MIT. As the show progresses, we are to get her iconic black, gold, and pink armor by the finale.
New MCU Bad Guy Alert
As for Anthony Ramos, rumors have been swirling around that he would be playing criminal, mystic villain Parker Robbins aka The Hood. Thanks to JustJared, the rumors have been very much correct. Take a look at his costume down below.
Short Comic Book History of The Hood
The Hood was created by writer Brian K. Vaughan, and artists Kyle Hotz and Eric Powell. First appearing in his own solo mini-comic series titled The Hood (July 2002), Parker Robbins broke into a warehouse with his cousin one night and shot a demon residing there, killing it. Not wanting to leave empty-handed, he stole the beasts’ cloak and boots, enabling him to fly and become invisible while holding his breath.
Pretty much Ramos’ MCU outfit is comic book accurate to a T. While The Hood isn’t someone Riri hasn’t gone up against in the comics before, it’ll be interesting to see a “Tech vs. Magic” storyline play out through her continuing journey.
