Solo: A Star Wars Story star Alden Ehrenreich has joined the cast of the upcoming Marvel Disney Plus series, Ironheart.
When Riri Williams first appeared in the Marvel comic universe, most predicted that she would be making her way to the Marvel Cinematic Universe sooner rather than later. That assumption was turned into reality when it was revealed that Riri Williams/Ironheard would be getting her own Disney Plus series. Since then, the cast has steadily filled out, with the lead character set to make her MCU debut in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever. But now a new cast member for the upcoming film has been revealed.
Alden Ehrenreich Joins The Cast
According to a new report from Deadline, Solo: A Star Wars Story lead Alden Ehrenreich has joined the cast of the upcoming Ironheart series for a key role. Ehrenreich gained prominence thanks to his role in the Star Wars spinoff film. The movie ultimately underperformed at the box office and the actor didn’t become the breakout star that Harrison Ford became thanks to the role. Now, at long last, the actor is taking on another major Disney IP. It is currently unknown what role he will play in the upcoming show.
Here is the official synopsis for Alden Ehrenreich’s Solo: A Star Wars Story:
Board the Millennium Falcon and journey to a galaxy far, far away in Solo: A Star Wars Story, an all-new adventure with the most beloved scoundrel in the galaxy. Through a series of daring escapades deep within a dark and dangerous criminal underworld, Han Solo meets his mighty future copilot Chewbacca and encounters the notorious gambler Lando Calrissian, in a journey that will set the course of one of the Star Wars saga;s most unlikely heroes.
