Dominique Thorne Breaks Silence on Ironheart Casting

At Disney Investor Day in December, Kevin Feige announced several new series that will release on Disney+. One of the new shows that Marvel Studios revealed is Ironheart which has cast Dominique Thorne as Riri Williams.

In a recent interview with BlackFilmandTV.com, Thorne was asked about the series and the process behind landing the role as Ironheart‘s titular character. The interview began by asking if Thorne was a Marvel fan and if she knew who Ironheart was before being cast:

Absolutely. I think my mother might disown me if I didn’t. It’s very much a Marvel household. I did know about Ironheart before I was approached with the role. So it was an awe-inspiring moment to think that I would be chosen to portray this woman and to bring her to the screen in this way. So yeah.

Thorne was also asked if she has gone back to read any of the Ironheart comic books, as Marvel fans will expect her to know everything about the character.

I would expect nothing less. I’m looking forward to really doing the deep dive. I’ve definitely run through as many of the comics as I can. I’m so ready to do more.

Not much is known about Ironheart at this point besides Thorne’s casting. The series will be based on the comic book character Riri Williams, a genius, teenage inventor who builds her own version the iconic Iron Man suit.
