The sequel to ‘Black Panther: Wakanda Forever’ will focus on Ironheart, the replacement for Tony Stark/Iron Man

It’s no surprise: Riri Williams/Ironheart, played by Dominique Thorne, will have a huge role in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever We know this, above all, thanks to the trailers of the film. He is a key character because of what he represents in the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Ironheart ends up replacing Iron Man in the comics. He is a super smart person who builds his own armor and becomes a superhero. In fact, at some point the artificial intelligence used is a digital version of Tony Stark.

So Riri Williams’ appearance on Black Panther: Wakanda Forever has quite significant importance and Marvel Studios plans to enhance it even more during 2023. According to an interview with the producer of the film, Nate Moore, by Cinemablendthe character’s solo series, which will premiere in the summer of next year on Disney +, will be a direct sequel.

“The show will be the product of how much we loved her performance in this film. When we spoke with Dominique [Thorne] the character was already in the script. In fact, she was the only actress we contacted for the role. Once she agreed, we asked Ryan Coogler about the general direction of the Ironheart series. So it will be a direct sequel to the movie. Riri Williams will carry all the experiences that she had in Wakanda Forever back to MIT. And there are some interesting repercussions in her adventures that will put her on a pretty interesting track.”

In the comics, Stark finds out about Williams, visits her and ends up becoming her mentor and ends up endorsing her transformation into a superhero.
