Filming for Ironheart is underway in Atlanta, Georgia, and Just Jared has posted some photos from the set that reveal two important details.
First of all, we can see Anthony Ramos as Parker Robbins aka Hood , as was rumored a month ago . The New York actor’s costume is very faithful to that of comics, with a red cape and hood. In addition, the shots portray Dominique Thorne in the role of Riri Williams , with the suit for motion capture and some elements of the armor. The latter is then visible in full: probably it is the Mark II , since the Mark I will debut in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever .
Created by Brian K. Vaughan , Kyle Hotz and Eric Powell in The Hood no. 1 (July 2002), Robbins is a petty criminal who kills a Nisanti demon when he breaks into a shed to steal something. With nothing more than preparations for a magical ritual, Parker steals the hood and boots of the demon, which he discovers to be endowed with powers: the boots allow you to levitate, while the cape makes the wearer invisible as long as he holds the breath. Hood then becomes the head of a powerful crime syndicate, challenges Kingpin , and collaborates with Norman Osborn. The cape, however, is mystically linked to Dormammu .
As we know, Riri will build the most advanced armor in the Marvel Cinematic Universe since Tony Stark , using reverse engineering. Her presence in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever suggests that in the MCU – contrary to the comics – the heroine will be Wakandian, but there are no confirmations in this regard. The series is expected to be released on Disney + in 2023. It will consist of six episodes and will be part of Phase 5.
