Dominique Thorne briefly discussed what it was like being cast as Riri Williams for Marvel Studios’ Ironheart.
When Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige revealed that Ironheart is getting her own solo series on Disney Plus fans were immediately excited to see how she’ll fit into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The woman set to lead the series, Dominique Thorne, opened up to Black Film and TV about how she reacted to finding out she got the role – explaining that she comes from a Marvel household, and that she was already familiar with Riri Williams.
“Absolutely. I think my mother might disown me if I didn’t. It’s very much a Marvel household. I did know about Ironheart before I was approached with the role. So it was it was an awe, inspiring moment to think that I would be chosen to portray this woman and to bring her to the screen in this way. So yeah.”
Since Marvel Studios has an excellent way of weaving everything together, it seems likely that Dominique Thorne’s Ironheart will spin-out of the events in Don Cheadle’s Armor Wars. That series will follow what happens when nefarious villains get their hands on Iron Man’s technology, but perhaps it’ll also touch on the potential of someone smarter than Tony Stark, enter Riri Williams. Dominique Thorne revealed she’s doing plenty of homework to prepare for her role
“I would expect nothing less. I’m looking forward to really doing the deep dive. I’ve definitely run through as many of the comics as I can. I’m so ready to do more.”
