When it was announced that Marvel Comics was planning to replace Tony Stark in the Iron Man armor with young Riri Williams, the fan-casting was immediate. One of the many names brought up was British actress Nathalie Emmanuel (Missandei on HBO's Game of Thrones), and as it turns out, there may actually be some interest there.

During the Women Who Kick Ass panel at San Diego Comic-Con, Emmanuel was asked which character she'd like to play in a comic book movie, regardless of gender, and responded thusly.


"I quite like the Iron Man films. There seems to be this issue of women in technology and science films and things like that, and I think the idea of playing some sort of science whiz that also kicks butt like Iron Man could be fun."

Obviously we still have no idea if we'll ever see Riri Williams take over from Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) in the MCU - and Emmanuel may not even be aware of the character's existence - but it's still interesting that she happened to name Iron Man as the superhero she'd most like to suit up as.

If Riri was to make her big screen debut as the new Iron Man in the next few years, do you think Emmanuel would be a good fit for the role?
