While Ms. Marvel introduced audiences to Kamala Khan ahead of her big screen role in The Marvels, the MCU intends to do the opposite with the genius, teenager, and friend of Wakanda, Riri Williams. Following her debut in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, Dominque Thorne’s Riri Williams is confirmed to receive her own series, Ironheart, on Disney+ in late 2023.
While fans don’t yet know just who these stars will be playing in Ironheart, there’s been plenty of speculation, discussion, and now newfound support for who Anthony Ramos will be portraying in the MCU come 2023.
More Rumors About Anthony Ramos’ Ironheart Villain
In support of a rumor that Anthony Ramos had been cast as The Hood in a villainous role for Ironheart, The Cosmic Circus has lent further credence to this claim in claiming to have heard the same information from sources.
In the comics, The Hood is a magic user named Parker Robbins who acquires a magical set of boots and a cloak that grants him both invisibility and teleportation. However, he’s not known to be a villain in print.
Anthony Ramos is best known for having starred in Hamilton and as the titular character in 2021’s In The Heights. News of Ramos having been cast in a key role for Ironheart was first reported back in February.
If these rumors prove to be true, having Ramos playing The Hood in a villainous role is surprising because, again, The Hood isn’t typically an antagonist.
Marvel fans are likely to get an idea of what to expect from this Disney+ series in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever debuting on November 11, 2022. Also, Marvel Studios may have new information to share about Ironheart at the D23 Expo on September 10. Ironheart is expected to debut on Disney+ in late 2023.
