Emmy nominee Anthony Ramos (“In the Heights”) has confirmed on a recent Instagram live session that production on Marvel Studios’ “Ironheart” TV series has begun with the show expected to debut next year.
Dominique Thorne stars as Riri Williams while Alden Ehrenreich, Manny Montana and Lyric Ross co-star. The series hails from head writer Chinaka Hodge (“Snowpiercer”) while Ryan Coogler is executive producing. Sam Bailey and Angela Barnes will direct.
In the comics Williams is a brilliant teenager who built her own version of the Iron Man suit in an MIT dorm. The character will first make her debut in “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” later this year.
