New images seen on merchandise for Black Panther: Wakanda Forever reveal the Mark II armor worn by Dominique Thorne’s Ironheart in the upcoming Marvel film.

Dominique Thorne will make her MCU debut in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, appearing as Riri Williams for the first time, ahead of her upcoming Disney Plus series Ironheart. Earlier images from the Black Panther sequel showed Ironheart’s early armor. Now, her fully formed costume has been revealed.

The new images show Riri Williams donning a sleek, high-tech suit of armor as Ironheart, with Tony Stark’s influence clearly on show.

The earlier images of Dominique Thorne’s Ironheart showed her in a crude exo-skeleton suit in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever. These new images confirm her look will evolve over the course of the film.

Check out the new images of Ironheart’s suit below:

When earlier images revealed a very basic early suit for Dominique Thorne’s Riri Williams, it wasn’t entirely clear if she would develop her more recognizable Ironheart armor in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, or whether that would be saved for her Disney Plus series. Now, it is clear that Riri will have her first full suit of Iron Man-inspired armor in the upcoming Black Panther sequel.

The suit does an excellent job of emulating Iron Man whilst remaining clearly distinct – there’s no chance of anyone mistaking this for one of Tony Stark’s suits, but his influence is evident. The black plating appears to nod to the Black Panther’s suit as well, hinting at a Wakandan influence in Riri’s work.

Recent images from Ironheart filming also appear to confirm that Riri’s armor will continue to evolve and change over the course of her future appearances in the MCU, in much the same way as Tony Stark’s Iron Man armor did before her.

Here is the synopsis for Black Panther: Wakanda Forever:

“In Marvel Studios’ ‘Black Panther: Wakanda Forever,’ Queen Ramonda (Angela Bassett), Shuri (Letitia Wright), M’Baku (Winston Duke), Okoye (Danai Gurira) and the Dora Milaje (including Florence Kasumba), fight to protect their nation from intervening world powers in the wake of King T’Challa’s death. As the Wakandans strive to embrace their next chapter, the heroes must band together with the help of War Dog Nakia (Lupita Nyong’o) and Everett Ross (Martin Freeman) and forge a new path for the kingdom of Wakanda.”
