Good Girls and Mayans M.C. alum Manny Montana has signed on for a series regular role in upcoming Disney+ Marvel series, Ironheart, opposite Dominique Thorne as titular teen hero Riri Williams. As is often the case with these casting announcements, no details on Montana's character were disclosed.

In The Heights actor Anthony Ramos will also appear, and while his role remains under wraps, it's said to be "similar to how Jonathan Majors was introduced as Kang To Conqueror in Loki.. He's is expected to not only have a big part in this series but in future Marvel projects as well."

The son of Iron Man baddie Obadiah Stane (Jeff Bridges) and The Hood are also rumored to make their live-action debuts during the show. That's yet to be confirmed, but if accurate, there's a chance Montana and Ramos could fill either or both roles.

Sam Bailey (Brown Girls) and Angely Barnes (Mythic Quest) were recently announced as directors, and have reportedly been enlisted to helm at least one episode a piece. Black Panther: Wakanda Forever director Ryan Coogler will executive produce via his Proximity production company.

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 ret-conned as a Wakandan since she'll also appear in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.

This guy is charismatic as hell.

Rooting for Coogler. I know he's got something cool up his sleeve.

@Waddles - smart
GhostDog - 6/15/2022, 3:02 PM
@Waddles - I started reading her stuff a little later,

I am cautious with legacy characters but if the story is good I am in. That being said, the heart of the character is what really grabbed me. She is both a slightly arrogant but socially conscious genius who simply can't wrap her head around the fact that she's risen so far so fast. And she differentiates herself from Tony by outfitting herself with weapons as a secondary concern ((she hates guns). She is also very indecisive and spends a lot of time in her head during a battle which is refreshing to see as sometimes characters figure out how to be a superhero rather easily.

Bendis gets a little overly wordy as he does in the first few issues, but the overall story and supporting cast are great. The Eve L. Ewing run is great too

@GhostDog -

I hate this dude.

He has swagger but he over does it. He tries way too hard to be gangster it's embarrassing at times
GhostDog - 6/15/2022, 3:04 PM
@AmazingFILMporg - I sometimes hated him on Good Girls because of that lol. At times, it seemed like he would overdo it but others he was the right amount of effortless cool. I really like him on Mayans.
AmazingFILMporg - 6/15/2022, 3:13 PM
@GhostDog -

Oh, I haven't seen Mayans yet🤔

So it's the directors fault maybe.

That's good news
Drace24 - 6/15/2022, 3:23 PM
@Waddles - I also don't know nything about her but I really like the MIT setting. I hope they exaggerate that a little with MCU tech and turn it into some kind of inventor Hogwarts.
HAUSMAN01 - 6/15/2022, 2:37 PM
I think he'll just be an agent of SHIELD or fellow student with her.
bkmeijer1 - 6/15/2022, 2:42 PM
I can't see Ramos as either Ezekiel or the Hood, but I can see Montana as either of them. I don't think they'll fuse the characters though

What if MCU's Ironheart is actually Shuri?
Vigor - 6/15/2022, 2:54 PM
@Fogs - we already know who is playing her
And that same actress will be in black panther 2
Fogs - 6/15/2022, 2:56 PM
@Vigor - Awww right. Forgot about this one lol
TheyDont - 6/15/2022, 2:52 PM
They're really going forward with this...
Vigor - 6/15/2022, 2:56 PM
@TheyDont - if after Ms. Marvel, Agatha, and I am groot announcements, you're still asking this... then you haven't been paying attention. Marvel is firing on all cylinders. And that means popular heroes, unknowns, and obscure characters alike.
MILESSPIDERMAN - 6/16/2022, 2:40 PM
@TheyDont - Sexist, Homophobic and Racist still don't get it do they. Kevin Feige does not care what you think about Ironheart or Ms marvel. He's making what he know people wanna see and what he wants to see.
TheyDont - 6/16/2022, 3:08 PM
@MILESSPIDERMAN - Heh, your butt is so easily inflamed.

It had been a while since we got news about this show. Seems it might end up being shot first than Armor Wars.

I wonder if Ironheart will also end up being part of the ever growing Young Avengers team's characters.

Vigor - 6/15/2022, 2:57 PM
@NinnesMBC -probably more than the original avengers lineup, I cannot wait to just see these young actors have those "hanging out at avengers HQ" interactions. We got a glimpse of it with Kate bishop and the new black widow. With the rumored upcoming cameo in Ms. Marvel, we might just get it again pretty soon.

These actors have such character and charisma. It'll be great seeing them having fun together just being powered teenager's and young adults.
UnderBelly - 6/15/2022, 3:02 PM
@NinnesMBC - Wait, kid Loki wasn't in young Avengers..At least not in the first couple of runs. I didn't following up after those.
NinnesMBC - 6/15/2022, 3:02 PM
@Vigor - So far most of the original founding members are there although I know Kid Loki and America came later. With Kang's Variants on their way we are just needing to see Iron Lad and maybe Hulkling will appear during the Secret Invasion "event" series.

But I also hope it's more than the original line up. And I agree, it will be fun to see them all interact and geek out about what the rest are able to do.
NinnesMBC - 6/15/2022, 3:04 PM
@UnderBelly - Indeed he wasn't, he came later on. I just added him there considering he debuted last year and was on his way after helping Loki and Sylvie reach He Who Remains's hideout and can't think where else he might show up later. The pattern in the majority of Disney+ shows has so far stayed consistent in introducing these characters so IMO Kid Loki shouldn't be too far away, unless he is gonna appear in an upcoming film.
UnderBelly - 6/15/2022, 3:08 PM
@NinnesMBC - ah ok. I suppose with him and the kid who plays (or will play) patriot they would need to do something quite soon as they'll start to age out of those kid roles. It will prob make a good series instead of a movie. Or maybe it will be Marvels 1st attempt at a deliberate Movie for streaming.
NinnesMBC - 6/15/2022, 3:15 PM
@UnderBelly - That is true yeah, if cameras start rolling soon for the 4th Cap movie we could see Elijah take the first steps into becoming Patriot and the first MCU movie on streaming with the Young Avengers isn't out of the realm of possibility.
NinnesMBC - 6/15/2022, 3:25 PM
@Waddles - I had a feeling I was missing out someone and it's because the movie hadn't come out yet but darn it I missed her when I did list up Hulkling and Iron Lad.

Yes she will and should be part of the line up. Every now and then, though, considering how multiversal the MCU has gotten with Loki, No Way Home and Multiverse of Madness I can't help but think that maybe Kathryn Newton could be playing a Variant of Cassie because I still think it was too un-Marvel Studios to just re-cast the previous actress that showed up in Endgame with her.

@NinnesMBC - where's America Chavesz and Cassie Lang??

MILESSPIDERMAN - 6/16/2022, 2:45 PM
@NinnesMBC - Ironheart has started filming already, can't wait to see Ironhearet suit up. Ryan knows how to make good film and tv

OMG they're still making this?! Wow
