Regan Aliyah Joins the Cast of the Marvel Disney+ Series Ironheart in an Unspecified Role: Report


Regan Aliyah has apparently been cast in an unnamed role in Ironheart. The main Dominique Thorne and the star of XO, Kitty will both participate in the new Marvel Cinematic Universe program, according to Deadline. Sam Bailey (Atlanta) and Angela Barnes (Atlanta) will each direct three episodes of the six-episode series. Chinaka Hodge, who is most recognized for her work on Netflix's Snowpiercer, is the show's creator and head writer. The Disney+ series, which will debut in the fall of 2023, is a part of Marvel's Phase 5 portfolio.


Ironheart, a character from the 2016 comic book series Invincible Iron Man, centers on 15-year-old engineering student Riri Williams. After her father's passing, the formally recognized super-genius constructs a suit of armor like Tony Stark's and keeps enhancing it. Until Stark decides to support her decision to become a superhero, that is.


The aforementioned Thorne, who was previously spotted in the Black Panther: Wakanda Forever trailer, which was unveiled at San Diego Comic-Con this year, will play Williams. It appears that Riri's story has been incorporated into the universe of Wakanda now that Iron Man is no longer present in the MCU.


She was seen sculpting the Ironheart suit's breast plate in the Black Panther 2 trailer. The Ironheart suit was first seen in early last month's set images. Although it appeared to have many improvements and to be extremely advanced, it did not have the usual red and gold color scheme.


Ironheart's armor was first seen in the final form when Marvel unveiled some new Black Panther 2 merchandise earlier this week. The action figurines, which have the recognizable red outfit with golden seams but a black visor concealing the face, were sighted at Target in the US.


It's unclear to say at this time if this MCU program serves as a prologue to Black Panther 2.


Similar to Aliyah, the majority of the cast members keep the identities of their characters a secret. Other than Thorne, Lyric Ross (This Is Us), who plays Natalie Washington, the best friend of William, is the only other actor with a recognized role. The antagonist is reportedly Anthony Ramos (In the Heights), and Alden Ehrenreich (Solo: A Star Wars Story), Manny Montana, Harper Anthony, Zoe Terakes, and Shea Coulée have roles that are still to be revealed.


Currently, Aliyah is scheduled to play the lead role in the To All the Boys film series spinoff XO, Kitty on Netflix.


In the fall of 2023, Ironheart will be available on Disney+ and Disney+ Hotstar.
