Anthony Ramos (In the Heights) has just been invited into the Marvel Cinematic Universe as Deadline reports that he is set for a key role in Marvel’s Ironheart series for Disney+. While the details about Ramos' role are unknown, it has been said it will be similar to how Jonathan Majors was introduced as Kang the Conquer in Loki, where he is expected to play a bigger role in not just this series but in foregoing future of the MCU as well.
Ironheart will star Dominique Thorne as Marvel character Riri Williams, a genius inventor and creator of the most advanced suit of armor since Iron Man. Williams was first introduced in the Marvel comics in 2016, the creation of writer Brian Michael Bendis and artist Mike Deodato. In the comics, she is a 15-year-old MIT student who reverse-engineers Iron Man’s armor in order to create armor of her own. Iron Man, aka Tony Stark, eventually took notice and gave her his encouragement to pursue the life of a superhero.
The premiere date for the series is still TBA, but Williams is expected to make her debut in the MCU in the upcoming Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, which bows in November.
