IRONHEART Adds THIS IS US Star Lyric Ross; Anthony Ramos Reportedly Playing The Show's Villain

The Hollywood Reporter reveals that Lyric Ross, best known for her role in NBC's This Is Us, is set to join the Marvel Cinematic Universe in Ironhart. While specific character details have yet to be revealed, the trade notes that the actress is playing Riri Williams' best friend.

Dominique Thorne plays Williams, "a genius inventor who creates the most advanced suit of armor since Iron Man."

Looking at the comic books, we have to assume Ross has been cast as Natalie Washington. They met as children and Natalie took an immediate interest in Riri's engineering work. A few years later, [SPOILER ALERT] tragedy struck when both girls were caught in the line of fire of an unrelated drive-by and Natalie was killed. However, there's nothing to say the MCU will follow the same path.

The report also mentions that In The Heights star Anthony Ramos is indeed set to play Ironheart's villain. If rumours about him being Obidiah Stane's son are correct, then we can probably expect him to suit up in a bid to take out this world's new "Iron Man."

Ironheart will be introduced in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever later this year, but very little has been revealed about plans for this Disney+ series. Snowpiercer's Chinaka Hodge has been set as Head Writer, though, and cameras are scheduled to begin rolling this June in Atlanta, Georgia.

With that in mind, we expect Ironheart to debut sometime in 2024.

Damn, that's excellent casting, although a bit bittersweet. Ross is GREAT in This Is Us, and I'm kinda sad now that she isn't playing Riri (no shade on the actress they cast)

I wonder if this will tie into Armor Wars. It would be cool to see Rhodes mentoring her.

@Waddles - I know you log out every once in a while to view that visually challenged lad's comments. You can't fool me

bkmeijer2 - 2/25/2022, 5:45 PM
@Waddles - I know you commented it once. Or atleast I think so. And I know I have excellent memory. I think...

bkmeijer2 - 2/25/2022, 5:54 PM
@Waddles - that's sick man!

Can't deny that's the very reason I don't block anyone though. And somewhere, deep down I enjoy it too.

I think we should seek help...

Eh, keeping then around is more fun. Plus, it enables you to see who's blocked you by themselves.

@DrReedRichards - true, I feel like I'm the only one blocked by Doc. And it saddens me, I guess I'll have to make back up accounts like everyone else muahaha

@bobevanz - I too am blocked by him, shame, he seems to have some good comments, buuut I can be aggravating occasionally 🤷🏾‍♂️

@TheWalkingCuban - I know I was just playing. A few people have said the doc has blocked them but he said he doesn't be doing or don't know whats going on.

It's kinda dumb they don't allow you to unblock people. I have someone blocked on here and I have no clue who the guy is or how it happened but I can't change it

@MyCoolYoung - You used to be able to reverse it, I’m not going to ask them to change that because then we will have Internet problems for several days, like when they added the edit button those two times

@TheWalkingCuban - the edit button costed us everything

@bobevanz, @TheWalkingCuban -

Doc has had issues with his account before, never his fault. Ever since the new layout actually filtered blocked users (which I strongly prefer), he's had other users mention that they seem to have been blocked by him, even though they're friends of his that he often conversed with.

I can tell you with certainty, the vast majority of those who seem to have been blocked by him are unfortunately due to a glitch. He's way too kind of a person to hold a grudge, let alone block others.

No back-up accounts needed, by the way. Just open an incognito tab on your browser, and you're good to go.

@MyCoolYoung - it was a blip for sure

@DrReedRichards -
Plus it often seems that I will have some good comments responded to by him but cannot see them but I can see my other friends responding to his comment about my comment. Meaning we must be cool I guess, it’s not like they’re saying back off of the Cuban! He didn’t do anything to you!

Wait... Wakanda forever comes out this year? Damn I thought that was going to be next year. I don't know a to about RiRi but I'm excited nonetheless. I hope she kills it

bkmeijer2 - 2/25/2022, 5:35 PM
@MyCoolYoung - same here. I'm just waiting for the announcement of The Marvels and Wakanda Forever swapping places
MyCoolYoung
MyCoolYoung - 2/25/2022, 8:42 PM
@Waddles - I wouldn't be surprised in the slightest if that was the case
MyCoolYoung
MyCoolYoung - 2/25/2022, 8:43 PM
@bkmeijer - the marvels filming already?
bkmeijer2
bkmeijer2 - 2/26/2022, 1:40 AM
@MyCoolYoung - even thought it was already done. Thats why I can see them swap. Could be wrong though
MyCoolYoung
MyCoolYoung - 2/26/2022, 3:31 AM
@bkmeijer - I think you're right. It started filming in August of last year. I really thought Brie was training for it right now...wow I totally missed that
