Marvel Studios is just over a year away from revisiting Iron Man’s legacy with the introduction of Dominique Thorne’s Riri Williams in the Ironheart Disney+ series. And with a cast that already boasts Hamilton’s Anthony Ramos and Solo: A Star Wars Story’s Alden Ehrenreich, the show also brings a historic moment with the inclusion of the MCU’s first non-binary star.
With filming still a long way from finishing for Ironheart, it will be some time until fans find out who Couleé is playing in the show as they make their highly-anticipated MCU debut. But now, the up-and-coming star has shared even more about what fans can expect to see from Ironheart as the show prepares for its 2023 arrival on Disney+.
Ironheart Star Teases Historic MCU Role
MCU newcomer Shea Couleé spoke with E! News about their upcoming role in Marvel Studios’ Ironheart, which will release on Disney+ in Fall 2023.
They called it “so humbling” to move into the world of mainstream content and break new boundaries with the world of drag, especially considering what they will bring to the show in that regard.
While Shea Couleé kept mum on details regarding their role in Marvel Studios’ Ironheart, they made it clear that they will bring the world of drag into the MCU upon their arrival.
How that comes into play is still largely a mystery, although they expressed how supportive Marvel has been in giving their world a spotlight with the studio’s refocused efforts towards better representation. These efforts take a major step forward with the franchise’s first non-binary actor coming in Ironheart, and Couleé hasn’t held back on sharing their excitement about joining the MCU.
With more than a year until Ironheart makes its debut, there will likely only be small hints and teases about the new actor’s upcoming role, with Marvel still using every measure possible to keep details secret. But this casting alone should have viewers looking forward to more information being released, especially as Riri Williams’ place in the MCU becomes more set in stone after her debut in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever. Ironheart is currently filming and will debut on Disney+ in Fall 2023.
