Fans have had a few glimpses of Ironheart’s early suits in previously leaked images from Marvel Studios’ Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, but now the first look at the final suit has been revealed. The leak comes in the form of recently surfaced merchandise for the movie showcasing an action figure of Ironheart.
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 suit doesn’t look like any of the character’s armors in the comics making this an original design for the MCU. Based on the previously released trailer for the film, Riri Williams is going to work on her armor while in Wakanda, so her suit may feature some form of vibranium-based abilities. It will be interesting to see how the young heroine uses her new armor in the upcoming film.
The film features returning stars Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira, Martin Freeman, Letitia Wright, Winston Duke, and Angela Bassett. It is also set to feature the MCU debut of Dominique Thorne as Riri Williams, who will take on the identity of Ironheart.
