BLACK PANTHER: WAKDANDA FOREVER Set Photo Reveals First Look At Dominique Thorne As Riri Williams

A new photo from the set of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever offers what appears to be our first look at Dominique Thorne as Riri Williams at MIT in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Check it out after the jump...

It was recently confirmed that Black Panther: Wakanda Forever will introduce Riri Williams ahead of her taking centre stage in Ironheart on Disney+. Rumour has it the character will play a substantial role in the film, and we wouldn't be surprised if she suits up for the first time in this sequel. 

Now, a first look at actress Dominique Thorne as Riri has been revealed on the MIT set of the movie in Cambridge, Massachusetts. 

She's in street clothes, so this really doesn't shed much light on what we can expect; however, fans of the character are bound to be excited to catch this glimpse of Riri in the MCU. For those of you who aren't overly familiar with the hero, she first appeared in the pages of Iron Man #7 just five years ago.

After Tony Stark's apparent demise, Riri managed to reverse-engineer the Iron Man armour to pick up where he left off. When the Armoured Avenger finally returned, she became Ironheart instead. During her early adventures, the young hero was helped in battle by an A.I. version of Tony.

Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira, Martin Freeman, Letitia Wright, Winston Duke, Angela Bassett, and Tenoch Huerta are all set to appear in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever (which will be released on May 6, 2022). Hopefully, we'll get some additional details on this one before the year reaches its end.
