Marvel’s upcoming “Ironheart” Disney+ series has almost wrapped filming. The news comes from producer Nate Moore who recently gave an interview with Collider and reported the following about the show:
It’s nearly complete. I think they might be on their second to last day, if I’m not mistaken.
Not much is known about the new “Ironheart” series but the show will feature Dominique Thorne as Riri Williams, a genius inventor who creates the most advanced suit of armor since Iron Man. Marvel’s Ironheart character follows Riri Williams, a 15-year-old engineering genius attending Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Riri builds a suit based on Iron Man’s armor and takes up the name Ironheart. The character has appeared in some Marvel animated series including Spider-Man: Maximum Venom and Marvel Rising.
Thorne will be making her Marvel Cinematic Universe debut in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever which will release in theaters this month.
Anthony Ramos (The Heights, Hamilton) will play the show’s villain, The Hood. Lyric Ross (This Is Us) will play Williams’ best friend. Additionally, newcomer Harper Anthony, Manny Montana (Good Girls), Zoe Terakes (Nine Perfect Strangers, Wentworth), Regan Aliyah (XO, Kitty), Shakira Barrera (Sprung, GLOW), RuPaul’s Drag Race Winner, Shea Couleé, Rashida “Sheedz” Olayiwola (South Side), Sonia Denis, Paul Calderón (Pulp Fiction, Bosch) and Canadian-American voice actress Cree Summer have joined the cast in unknown roles.
Deadline also confirms the previous rumor that Marvel Comics villain Mephisto will appear in “Ironheart,” with Sasha Baron Coen (Borat) attached to the role.
Chinaka Hodge (Snowpiercer) will serve as head writer for the series. Sam Bailey and Angela Barnes will direct.
Coogler, Zinzi Coogler, Sev Ohanian and Chinaka Hodge will serve as executive producers alongside Marvel Studios’ Kevin Feige, Louis D’Esposito, Victoria Alonso, Brad Winderbaum, and Zoie Nagelhout.
