After a brief appearance in the recent Black Panther: Wakanda Forever trailer, fans finally have a new look at Dominique Thorne’s Riri Williams. Leaked photos from the set of Ironheart have revealed the character’s new armor.
Ironheart, aka Riri Williams, is a relatively newer character, first appearing in Invincible Iron Man #7 in 2016. She reverse-engineered Tony Stark’s armor and took on the mantle after he fell into a coma after a fight with Captain Marvel. Eventually, after Tony reclaimed the title of Iron Man, Riri took on the name Ironheart and became a member of the Champions.

The character is set to have an exoskeleton design in Wakanda Forever, but this new design is similar to her Mark 1 armor in the comics. It is unknown if she will get her sleeker armor design by the end of the season.
The series will star Thorne as Riri Williams, a genius inventor, and creator of the most advanced suit of armor since Iron Man. The series also stars Anthony Ramos and Lyric Ross. Chinaka Hodge has also signed on as the head writer of the series.
