Fans, thankfully, won’t have to wait Stone heart on Disney+ next year to meet Dominique Thorne’s Riri Williams. The character will first be featured in the upcoming Black Panther: Wakanda Forever. Not only that, but she will even play a crucial role in the story.
But what exactly will his role be? At the very least, thanks to the photos taken, fans know she’ll be seen at MIT at some point in the film, a great place to showcase her intellect to a wider audience right off the bat.
Riri will also wear at least two costumes in the film. The former is definitely a prototype costume, while the latter appears to be much more advanced. Fans got their first good look at Ironheart in action during the latest trailer for the sequel.
Now, thanks to some merchandise, fans have gotten another idea of what might be in store for Riri in the next MCU installment.
New Ironheart Details Emerge
A short time ago fans got a great clear picture of one of Riri William’s advanced Ironheart suits (seen above) which will appear in the upcoming Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.
To be specific, it was the red and black suit, which was highlighted with a Marvel Legends figurine. Needless to say, it looked quite classy.
Now, a new product description has appeared on Hasbro’s Pulse website, which has revealed additional plot details for wakanda forever.
The synopsis teases a fateful “school project” which ends up attracting the attention of both “Wakandese” and one “dangerous enemy” which is almost certainly Namor and his people:
“A brilliant MIT student with a passion for engineering, Riri Williams’ life takes an unexpected turn when a school project brings the Wakandans and a dangerous enemy to her doorstep.”
A dangerous school project attracts Namor
It’s clear that this dangerous “school project” is an invention of Riri Williams, given her tendency to tinker and create. After all, that’s how she gets her Iron Man-inspired armor.
However, there is definitely more to making a fancy costume. It’s hard to believe that Namor and company, who are likely the dangerous enemies referred to, would sue Riri for creating an Iron Man outfit.
So what exactly could Riri Williams be doing that would upset Namor while bringing Wakanda to his doorstep? Well, given the involvement of Shuri’s homeland, Vibranium is likely involved in some form. But the how remains unclear.
With just over a month until Black Panther: Wakanda Forever lands on November 11, fans won’t have long to wait for answers.
