LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: Dominique Thorne previously starred as Ironheart in Letitia Wright’s Black Panther: Wakanda Forever. After last year’s Ms.Marvel, this year we have Ironheart. Needless to say, it’s one of the most anticipated series this year. Ironheart is one of several TV shows releasing from Marvel Studios this year, starring Dominique Thorne as the eponymous heroine following her starring role in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever. Thorne is joined by an ensemble cast that includes Anthony Ramos, who plays the mystical The Hood, and Alden Ehrenreich, who plays a character yet to be named.
That didn’t stop ‘Cocaine Bear’ star Alden Ehrenreich from breaking his silence on the project by confirming his involvement at a media appearance at Sundance on Sunday. Regardless, the series will consist of six episodes, with Sam Bailey directing the first three episodes and Angela Barnes directing the last three episodes of the series.
Alden Ehrenreich, whose character details are yet to be revealed, recently admitted how close the film is to him. He said: “Ironheart is big, but it also feels very personal. I really appreciated that and it was fun. It was nice to go back and do such a big thing,” said Ehrenreich DiscussionMovie at the film festival.
Regardless, the series may differ from the comics. According to a comic book interview, it’s yet to be seen if Robert Downey Jr. will return as an AI version of Tony Stark, comparable to the comic book storyline involving the two characters. However, Thorne said the show deviated a bit from the story of the source material.
“They’re definitely similar, but definitely two independent expressions of this beautiful spirit,” Thorne told us last November. “I think the answer to that is best left to next year’s series, so you need to get there to get the truthful answer to that question.” there’s an inherent acknowledgment of what Tony Stark did when he created this armor,” Thorne added. “I think for someone as ambitious as Riri Williams, it’s undoubtedly something that draws you in and demands your attention. As you can see from the film, that ambition will lead to where it will lead, and this time it has led to her being about to join him in creating her very own armor.”
Ironheart is slated to premiere on Disney+ in late 2023.
