Warning Ironheart spoilers ahead.
Coming hot on the heels of wrapping Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, actress Dominique Thorne is filming in the Disney+ series, Ironheart, in Atlanta. Now Just Jared has some exciting photos from the set.
The pics offer up the first look at Thorne as the Tony Stark-inspired character Riri Williams wearing her prototype suit which is recycled from Iron Patriot armor. Like other Disney+ and Marvel series we will probably see Thorne in the trademark pink and yellow armor in the last episode.
The images also feature In the Heights star Anthony Ramos playing the villainous The Hood. In the comics, Ramoos’ character Parker Robbins is a petty thief who gains abilities after an attack by a demon. Like Harry Potter, the cloak allows The Hood to turn invisible and his boots enable flight. Take a look here:

Sam Bailey (Brown Girls) and Angely Barnes (Mythic Quest) were recently announced as directors, and have reportedly been enlisted to helm at least one episode a piece. Black Panther: Wakanda Forever director Ryan Coogler will executive produce via his Proximity production company
Ironheart is expected to stick pretty closely to Riri’s comic book origin as “the creator of the most advanced suit of armor since Iron Man.” There’s also been some speculation that the character could be ret-conned as a Wakandan since she’ll also appear in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.
