‘Ironheart’ Adds Lyric Ross To Cast

by Erik Amaya

The now traditional Friday afternoon/evening casting notice centers on Disney+’s Ironheart.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, This Is Us veteran Lyric Ross has joined the ensemble of the Marvel Studios series as the best friend of lead character Riri Williams. It is unclear if this is meant to be Natalie Washington or a subsequent friend; the lack of a character name could lead in either direction. Star Dominique Thorne plays Williams and will make her debut in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever. The series will also feature Anthony Ramos in an undisclosed, but key role. According to the previous reporting, the introduction of Ramos’s character will be similar to what viewers saw in Loki with Jonathan Major‘s He Who Remains. Feel free to guess who that might be.

Based on concepts outlined by Brian Michael Bendis and Mike Deodato back in the comics, the series centers on Williams, a tech genius and creator of an armored suit to rival the likes of Iron Man. Chinaka Hodge will serve as head writer, but the program is still in a developmental stage.

Ironheart is not yet scheduled to premiere, but it will stream on Disney+.
