At the end of Infinity Saga, Marvel Studio propelled various characters to take up existing titles starting with Sam Wilson taking over Captain America’s shield. Upcoming Hawkeye, She-Hulk and Ms Marvel series further affirms a new generation of superheroes is on the way.
Ironheart Suit Makeover
PlayStation’s art director Raf Grassetti who famously designed God of Wars characters recently shared his iteration of the character on social media platform Instagram. The artwork takes inspiration from the character’s original suit.
The comic book’s pink and black colour scheme is swapped with Iron Man’s traditional MCU colours with a dash of grey. The design is sleeker in its cuts making it more feminine while keeping the metallic cuts of Stark’s design. Created by Brian Michael Bendis in 2015, the comic book suit has a homemade feel to it with the arc reactor light shifted on the left side.
Grassetti’s Ironheart suit looks more like one of MCU’s Tony Stark’s nano-tech design. In the comic Riri Williams, a 15-year-old tech wiz designs her own suit inspired by the Iron Man. She takes on the mantel while Tony was in comatose on the heels of Civil War II.
The Series Vs Movie Debate
In 2018, an Ironheart script by Jada Rodriguez surfaced on Black List which spurred the speculations of Marvel secretly developing a project. It was also reported that its one of the ‘best script’ that the studio have read by far. However, Marvel Studios never commented on the reports.
With Marvel’s Phase 4 and 5 spelt out, it is unclear whether Riri Willaims will debut in her own movie or on Disney Plus. With most founding Avengers getting a successor in following phases it’s about time Iron Man gets one too. Most fans favour the possibility of a movie.
However, another subset of fans believes otherwise. As Marvel has a pretty packed schedule with a number of Disney+ series lined up along of MCU movies. Some fans are in favour of the fact that there is no urgency of introducing Ironheart into the MCU.
With characters such as X-Men, Wolverine, Fantastic Four, Deadpool all waiting for a debut in the MCU it remains to see the how Marvel Studio will approach Ironheart.
Be it a series or a movie, sooner or later fans will get definitely get to see the Iron Man successor on screen.
