As production on Ironheart looks to move production from Georgia to Chicago, the Disney+ series has added yet another cast member. Deadline has announced that Cree Summer has joined the series in an unspecified role.
Summer is perhaps known for her voice work. She has voiced characters in shows like The Proud Family, Rugrats, Danny Phantom, Friday: The Animated Series, The Spectacular Spider-Man, and Teen Titans Go! She’s next set to appear in Star Wars: Detours and The Magician’s Elephant.
The outlet also commented more on Sacha Baron Cohen‘s role in the series. Per Deadline, Cohen is thought to be appearing later in the series. The outlet believes Cohen’s mysterious character, thought to be Mephisto, will appear in episodes five and six, specifically. They also revealed the actor has shot in-person scenes and undergone CGI scans for his role.
Ironheart, which consists of six-episodes, hails from head writer Chinaka Hodge and stars Dominique Thorne as Marvel character Riri Williams. Olayiwola joins a cast that includes Anthony Ramos, Shakira Barrera, Manny Montana, Alden Ehrenreich, Regan Aliyah, Shea Couleé, and Zoe Terakes. Sam Bailey (Dear White People) and Angela Barnes (Atlanta) are directing the forthcoming Disney+ series. As of now, the series has no release date.
