‘Black Panther 2’ Will Introduce ‘Ironheart’ Star Dominique Thorne Ahead of Disney Plus Show

Marvel fans will be getting an early look at one of the up-and-coming heroes of the MCU.

Dominique Thorne, who will star as the superhero Ironheart in her own Disney Plus series, will make her Marvel Cinematic Universe debut in “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” next year, Variety has confirmed.

Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige first revealed the news in an interview with Comicbook.com while speaking about the upcoming “Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings.”

“We’re shooting ‘Black Panther: Wakanda Forever’ right now, and the character of Riri Williams, you will meet in ‘Black Panther 2’ first,” he told Comicbook.com. “She started shooting, I think, this week before her ‘Ironheart’ series.”

Ironheart, a.k.a. Riri Williams, was introduced in the Marvel comics in 2016 as a 15-year-old MIT student who reverse engineers Iron Man’s armor in order to create her own suit of armor. With the support of Iron Man, a.k.a. Tony Stark, Riri takes on the name Ironheart and becomes a superhero.
