As production on Marvel Studios Disney Plus streaming series Ironheart draws near, the cast continues to grow. Hollywood newcomer Harper Anthony, a 9-year old who has appeared in Vulture City and Chicago Med, has signed on for an undisclosed role in the show.
Ironheart will carry on the story of Riri Williams, a genius inventor who creates the most advanced suit of armor since Iron Man. Williams will be introduced in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, where one of her inventions ultimately brings Wakanda into conflict with a hidden civilization led by Namor. Chinaka Hodge will serve as head writer on the series, which is set to be produced by Hodge, Sev Ohania and Zinzi Coogler.
Anthony joins star Dominique Thorne and Anthony Ramos in the upcoming series. Thorne’s character is said to be inspired by the late Tony Stark to become an adventurer, crime fighter and humanitarian.
