The first set photo from the upcoming MCU Disney Plus series Ironheart has surfaced online, revealing Dominique Thorne on the set of the Marvel show.
Ironheart will see Dominique Thorne play Riri Williams, a teenage prodigy who builds her own Iron Man-inspired suit of high-tech armor. The series will follow Thorne’s first MCU appearance as Riri, which audiences will be able to see later this year in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.
Filming on Ironheart reportedly began last month. Now, a new image shows Dominique Thorne showing up on set.
Meet The MCU’s Riri Williams
The first Ironheart set photo was shared by Atlanta Filming on Instagram. The image offers a clear look at Riri Williams actress Dominique Thorne on the Disney Plus series’ Atlanta set.
The image doesn’t reveal much with regards to the scenes currently being filmed, but promises work is underway on Ironheart. Few details have been revealed so far, though the series will likely pick up Riri’s story where Black Panther: Wakanda Forever leaves off.

It was recently announced that Good Girls star Manny Montana would be joining the cast of Ironheart as a series regular. Rumors suggest that the series will connect in some way to Armor Wars, the Disney Plus series that will follow Don Cheadle’s James “Rhodey” Rhodes/War Machine. Given that Riri is also set to sport a suit of Iron Man-style armor, it’s easy to imagine she could figure into that series.
Here is the synopsis for Marvel’s latest Disney Plus series, Ms. Marvel:
Marvel Studios’ “Ms. Marvel” is a new, original series that introduces Kamala Khan, a Muslim American teenager growing up in Jersey City. An avid gamer and a voracious fan-fiction scribe, Kamala is a Super Hero mega fan with an oversized imagination—particularly when it comes to Captain Marvel. Yet Kamala feels like she doesn’t fit in at school and sometimes even at home—that is, until she gets super powers like the heroes she’s always looked up to. Life gets better with super powers, right?
Ms. Marvel stars Iman Vellani, Aramis Knight, Saagar Shaikh, Rish Shah, Matt Lintz, Zenobia Shroff, Mohan Kapur, Fawad Khan, Mehwish Hayat, and Farhan Akhtar.
