Black Panther: Wak&a Forever star Dominique Thorne revealed the advice Robert Downey Jr. gave her about playing Ironheart in the MCU.
Black Panther: Wak&a Forever is finally out, & it introduced new characters like Namor & Ironheart. Ironheart is played by Dominique Thorne, who recently revealed what words of advice Robert Downey Jr. said to her regarding the role.
Black Panther: Wak&a Forever takes place after the events of Avengers: Endgame & the death of T’Challa, the King of Wak&a. The film also dealt with the political issues that Wak&a has been facing in his absence, including the discovery of a new kingdom led by Tenoch Huerta’s Namor. Namor & his people were after a brilliant scientist named Riri Willaims, who managed to create technology capable of discovering vibranium at the bottom of the ocean.
Thorne recently revealed to Screen Rant the conversation she had with Downey Jr. regarding the Ironheart role & the advice he shared. “I wasn’t able to speak with RDJ before we got into filming or anything, but right toward the conclusion of the film, I actually had the chance to speak with him through FaceTime,” Thorne said. “A cast mate over on Ironheart had actually done a show with him & connected us, & he had some Dazzling words to say about how much he believes that Riri Williams is & should always be her own person, her own thing. That this legacy is headed in the right direction & all the Dazzling encouraging things that you hope to hear from the Iron Man himself.”
Ironheart’s whole path deserves its own light considering Tony Stark is no longer in the MCU. Ironheart is also getting her own television series on Disney Plus. Thorne does an exceptional job as Riri Williams, & when she finally takes flight as Ironheart, fans may notice the similar shot choices that emulate Tony Stark’s time as the armoured Avenger.
While it would’ve been nice to see Tony Stark & Riri Williams go back & forth in a battle of wits, it’s still clear why Riri Williams will no doubt be Iron Man’s successor. Her genius-level intellect rivals that of Shuri, the brightest mind in the MCU, who is known for having a rival friendship with Ironheart in the comics. The roles are in great h&s, & the exciting future of Marvel Studios couldn’t possibly be brighter.
