Dominique Thorne is set to make her debut in the Marvel Cinematic Universe with the release of “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” in November 2022. She’ll portray a brilliant teenage inventor named Riri Williams, who, in the comics, is raised by her mother and stepfather in Chicago, and then goes on to attend the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. One day, she ends up building her own version of the Iron Man suit in her dorm, which catches the attention of Iron Man/Tony Stark himself. After receiving his support, Riri adopts the superhero identity Ironheart.
