IRONHEART Casts IN THE HEIGHTS Actor Anthony Ramos In What Sounds Like A Major MCU Role

The upcoming Ironheart Disney+ series has made another significant casting addition, with In The Heights breakout Anthony Ramos set to join the project in a mysterious - and seemingly major - role.

More casting news here, this time of the Marvel Studios variety. According to Deadline, the upcoming Disney+ Ironheart series has added In The Heights actor Anthony Ramos in what sounds like a role that will have major significance for the MCU moving forward. He joins Dominique Thorne as the hero of the title, Riri Williams.

Though details on his character are being kept under wraps, the trade has heard that the part "will be similar to how Jonathan Majors was introduced as Kang The Conquer in Loki, where he is expected to not only have a big role in this series but in future Marvel projects as well."

There are multiple Marvel Comics heroes and villains that could fit this description, but we do know that both the son of Iron Man baddie Obadiah Stane (Jeff Bridges) and The Hood are expected to make their live-action debuts during the show.

We still don't know a whole lot about Ironheart, but the series is expected to stick pretty closely to Riri's comic book origin as "the creator of the most advanced suit of armor since Iron Man." There's also been some speculation that the character could be retconned as a Wakandan since she'll also appear in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, but we don't have anything to back that up.

Ramos recently landed a lead role in Transformers: Rise of the Beasts, which is set to bow on June 9, 2023. No premiere date for Ironheart has been announced.
