IRONHEART Is Facing A Significant Delay In Order To Better Tie Into This Upcoming MCU Movie

IRONHEART Is Facing A Significant Delay In Order To Better Tie Into This Upcoming MCU Movie

We learned yesterday that Ironheart is among the upcoming MCU TV shows delayed by Marvel Studios, and while it's finished shooting, a new rumour claims it will now be released closer to an upcoming movie.

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever served as a solid introduction for Riri Williams, but by the time all was said and done, she'd been forced to leave her new suit in Shuri's home nation. However, the sequel established fairly early on that the teenager had a penchant for building Iron Man suits. 

If Riri no longer has access to Wakandan technology, it likely explains why the various armours we've seen in set photos have a more homemade feel to them. In fact, currently appears as if Tony Stark/Iron Man will have only a minor role in Riri's origin story, serving as her inspiration and little else. 

That could change, though, especially with Alden Ehrenreich thought to be playing Obidiah Stane's son. A new rumour also claims the idea now is for Ironheart to be released in closer proximity to the long-delayed Armor Wars movie (which started off as a TV series).

The project will put Don Cheadle's Rhodey/War Machine front and centre, picking up with the aftermath of Secret Invasion. That show revealed the character has been a Skrull since Captain America: Civil War, and we've all seen how the Department of Damage Control has co-opted Stark Industries tech in recent years.

Ironheart has assembled a cast that includes Black Panther: Wakanda Forever star Dominique Thorne as the title character, along with Anthony Ramos, Manny Montana, Shakira Barrera, Alden Ehrenreich, Regan Aliyah, Shea Couleé, Zoe Terakes, Paul Calderón, Anji White, and Cree Summer.

Sacha Baron Cohen is believed to be playing Mephisto in Ironheart, though the demonic villain may debut prior to that in the renamed Agatha: Darkhold Diaries. Not too long ago, a rumour claimed Mephisto is the new owner of Avengers Tower and, for some reason, has a vested interest in technology. 

Ironheart was created by writer Brian Michael Bendis and artist Mike Deodato and first appeared in the pages of Invincible Iron Man Vol. 3 #7  in May 2016. She's since become a firm fan-favourite. 

We don't currently know when Ironheart will premiere on Disney+, but don't be surprised if it's now as late as 2025.

Makes sense. She’s essentially going to be building suits for Rhodey going forward

My guess is we won't see Armor Wars until November 2025. Unless Sony wants another holiday release with Spider-Man 4, I expect to see that before Armor Wars in July 2024.

So yeah, this makes sense. The Earthly technological stuff is probably all connected, so better just put it close to each other. Wonder if we'll see Sharon again then too.

Mcu used to be great for having a clear plan, not anymore looks like

That show revealed the character has been a Skrull since Captain America: Civil War?
Has that officially been confirmed? That was more of a hint.

@tb86 - It has not been officially confirmed. The director of Secret Wars at best suggested it will be answered in Armor Wars, but did acknowledge the Civil War Rhodey idea and the fun people could have going back and looking in detail whether he may be a skrull here in this movie or there in that movie. Nothing official though. And after the backlash, they still have wiggle room to decide how they want to handle it officially (even more time now with the strikes and delays).

@tb86 - Civil War Rhodey was handicapped by Vision and I think a shapeshifter should’ve been able to mitigate being a paraplegic. To me, it doesn’t make sense for Rhodey to have been a Skrull doing Civil War.

All those visual fx artists that bust their arses under extreme working conditions to meet the Iron heart deadline looking at Marvel like..

@TheClunges - it's not like they knew that a strike was going to happen
DeadClunge - 9/2/2023, 1:03 PM
@cyclopsprime - the project is finished though, secret invasion & ashoka released during the strikes so they could have released it.

@GodHercules20 - Looks decent enough.

I really don’t think the character is strong enough to carry her own show.
marvel72 - 9/2/2023, 8:15 AM
After her appearance in Wakanda Forever, don't bother.
DarthAlgar - 9/2/2023, 8:19 AM
Can't even pretend to care.
TheBlueMorpho - 9/2/2023, 8:32 AM
Shouldn't have made the show.

Another tertiary show no one wants, you cannot have armor wars without Tony stark. No one knows or cares about riri. If they are rebooting mcu after secret wars, bring Tony stark back as iron man and then have armor wars, that I will watch. Riri can be a sidekick to To Tony, that I may watch, naaaa. Rodney is barely ok, he was no draw or fans, he was terrible in secret invasion, dogshit. I have zero interest 🙃 in any of this, mcu needs to followed canon and listen to fans.

In what reality has Ironheart become "a firm fan-favourite"?

In none!
Spike101 - 9/2/2023, 11:04 AM
Maybe just forget about it all together
JobinJ - 9/2/2023, 12:47 PM
No one wants this. Her acting was so bad, so dramatic.She was actively annoying.
DocSpock - 9/2/2023, 1:25 PM

How about delaying it to never.

Supercat6376 - 9/2/2023, 2:25 PM
A firm fan favorite my ass lmao 🤣
WhatIfRickJames - 9/2/2023, 3:20 PM
I really hope it’s done well. I didn’t like her character in WF at all. Matter of fact, I didn’t love a lot about WF and then other things I really enjoyed. Riri was not good. That being said, Ive always liked the mystical elements and if it sets more groundwork for Ghost Rider, Helstorm, Satana and the like, I’m in but cautiously

Ironfart got hit with some Gas X

Why are people treating canwegetsometoast like he's a high ranking marvel and dc employee? Guy is getting an article everyday like he was making a Hall H announcement.

Cancel both of them. Nobody wants either. They think they can replace Iron Man with these two cheap knockoffs? Lol. Keep earning those 'L's Disney, you bunch of clowns.
