The end of Tony Stark’s story happened in Avengers: Endgame. But there is no way Marvel will put an end to the Iron Man brand. Sure enough there are already signs pointing to the studio bringing Riri Williams AKA Ironheart in the MCU in the near future. It looks like she will be getting her own Disney+ show and it looks like Tony Stark and Pepper Potts will both be dropping by.
How Will Robert Downey Jr. Appear In The Iron Heart Disney+ Show?
If the Riri Williams Ironheart Disney+ show happens, then Marvel is considering getting Robert Downey Jr. back for the show, at least in a small capacity. This makes sense because Riri has an A.I. Tony as her JARVIS in the comics. The actor could return in the occasional holographic role or just have a voiceover role. It won’t eat into Robert Downey Jr.’s time to do other projects.
How Will Gwyneth Paltrow Appear As Pepper Potts In Iron Heart?
It seems like Pepper Potts will be in the series as well. Just like Robert Downey Jr’s role, Gwyneth Paltrow’s Pepper Potts will return for a small role. She will probably act like some sort of mentor figure for Riri and could even help her create the Tony A.I.
Fans may wonder how that will work since Gwyneth Paltrow didn’t want to have anything to do with the MCU after Endgame anymore. But she actually said that she was open for cameo appearances. It was just that she didn’t want to do whole movies.
Who Is Riri Williams?
Riri Williams was introduced in Marvel comics way back in 2016. She is a teenage prodigy and MIT student. The 15-year-old created her own Iron Man armor, which brought her to Tony’s attention. Impressed with her talent and spirit, he granted her an A.I. of himself to assist her and Ironheart took over from him when he was left temporarily comatose. But of course, things are bound to be changed from the comics to the MCU. Yet we can’t wait to see how it all happens.
