Iron Man MCU Successor's Full Armor Revealed In Ironheart Set Photos

The first set photos from Marvel's Ironheart show reveal the full armor for the MCU's Iron Man replacement, as Riri Williams suits up.

The first Ironheart set photos reveal Riri Williams' Iron Man-inspired armor. Marvel Studios is introducing several new heroes to the Marvel Cinematic Universe in Phase 4. Dominique Thorne will debut as Riri Williams in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever later this year before headlining a Disney+ series. The announcement of Ironheart in 2020 confirmed that the popular comic character would join the MCU shortly after Iron Man's death in Avengers: Endgame.

Development on Ironheart kicked into high gear in 2022 as Marvel Studios got the final pieces in place before starting production. It was revealed that some big names like In the Heights' Anthony Ramos and Solo: A Star Wars Story's Alden Ehrenreich were joining the cast, but their roles were not revealed. After seeing a glimpse of Riri Williams building her own Iron Man-like armor in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever's trailer, interest in seeing the final product increased.

Production is currently underway on Ironheart down in Atlanta, Georgia, and now Just Jared has shared the first photos from the set. They reveal Dominique Thorne in a version of the Ironheart MCU armor. The photos also include the first look at Anthony Ramos' character, who appears to be the Marvel villain known as The Hood.

This is the first look at Ironheart's MCU suit in live-action, although there have been other teases of it before. Merchandise for Black Panther 2 teased what it could look like in the movie. There are some differences between those previous designs and what Dominique Thorne wears in these Ironheart set photos. It is unclear if this will be an older version of the Ironheart costume or her Mark II after Black Panther 2. In any case, the MCU's Iron Man replacement is already finding herself up against a formidable opponent in The Hood.

Ironheart's MCU future will become much more clear in the months to come. Not only is there the potential for more set photos to emerge and give different teases about what the Disney+ show will contain, but Black Panther: Wakanda Forever will introduce audiences to Riri Williams. With director Ryan Coogler also producing the Ironheart series, there is a strong chance that the movie directly sets up her solo adventure. There are no obvious signs of Wakandan technology in this current version of Riri's armor, but such enhancements could come later on. At the very least, it is expected that Ironheart will give Dominique Thorne's character a new armor that is more advanced and features more color.
