While all eyes have been on the recent Disney+ production of Marvel Studios, Echo, to start production, it seems that the upcoming Ironheart series has also already gotten things rolling. It must be noted, that this is seemingly not the actual production start but rather B roll and plate shots. Second units tend to prepare production and film elements ahead of the actual production, which is what is being referenced by @filming_chicago, but it does further add that Ironheart will start production in June.
Riri Williams, played by Dominique Thorne, will make her MCU debut in the upcoming Black Panther sequel, Wakanda Forever. It’s unclear how her story will lead into her own Disney+ spinoff series, but visiting one of the most advanced nations in the world will definitely leave an impact on anyone. We don’t know if she’ll even have her Ironheart armor when we first see her, or if it is something she develops throughout her Disney+ seres. Black Panther director Ryan Coogler is also heavily involved with the series. So, we’ll see if she might have some familiar faces from her travels to Wakanda drop by in the Disney+ series as well.
Either way, it’s great to get an update that they may have already started work for the production. It’s unclear if Chicago will also get used as a backdrop as she was a student of MIT. So, we’ll see how they potentially tie it together or simply use it as a backdrop for another location, which isn’t uncommon for most movies nowadays.
