Ironheart actress Dominique Thorne has been spotted on the set of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.
In late 2020, it was revealed that the character of Riri Williams would be getting her own Ironheart show on the Disney Plus streaming service. In Marvel Comics, Williams is a young genius and takes up the mantel of Iron Man with a little help from Tony Start after he is critically injured during the events of Civil War II. While we don’t have a release window for the series, we do know that the character will be played by Dominique Throne and will make her first appearance in one of the films.
Earlier this month, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige revealed that Dominique Throne’s Ironheart would first appear in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever. Very little is known about the Black Panther sequel which includes how big of a role Throne will have in the movie. Now the actress has been spotted on the set of the movie and indicates that the character will be a student at MIT:
Here is the synopsis for the first Black Panther film:
After the death of his father, the king of Wakanda, young T’Challa returns home to the isolated high-tech African nation to succeed to the throne and take his rightful place as king. But when a powerful enemy reappears, T’Challa’s mettle as king – and Black Panther – is tested when he’s drawn into a formidable conflict that puts the fate of Wakanda and the entire world at risk. Faced with treachery and danger, he must release the full power of Black Panther to defeat his foes and secure the safety of his people and their way of life.
Directed by Ryan Coogler, the film stars Chadwick Boseman, Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira, Martin Freeman, Daniel Kaluuya, Letitia Wright, Winston Duke, Angela Bassett, Forest Whitaker, and Andy Serkis.
