Well, it looks like the rumors were true. as a new Ironheart Disney+ series was announced by Kevin Feige. Not just that but Dominique Thorne has been cast as Riri Williams. Not much is known about the show’s direction but it seems like they’ll stick close to the comics. A while back I had the theory she might replace Iron Lad, as the character to have a connection with Kang. The fact she is getting a series of her own might add more relevance to that theory, so it will be interesting to see how things develop.
Coming soon to #DisneyPlus, Dominique Thorne is genius inventor Riri Williams in Ironheart, an Original Series about the creator of the most advanced suit of armor since Iron Man. pic.twitter.com/VB94VyPr9e
