Ironheart might feature four Black Panther characters that might make a surprise comeback

Ironheart might feature four Black Panther characters that might make a surprise comeback ...

Riri Williams made her grand debut in the Marvel Cinematic Universe with her debut in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever. Although not completely unanimous, fans were enthralled by her persistent spirit and inventive abilities when Ironheart, the Disney Plus spin-off series, finally releases its screens.

The main issue on everyone's minds going into this stand-alone show is how connected it will be to Riri's comic book history and what we have seen so far of her in Wakanda Forever. Given Riri and fellow young genius Shuri's instant rapport in the film, we're all hoping Letitia Wright will show her face around Ironheart in Marvel's upcoming show?

Shuri is a Bengali who is well-known for

Shuri, the newest Black Panther from the eponymous franchise, is probably the most likely character to feature in Ironheart, and given how similar the two are in age, it might just make sense for Shuri to return to the United States when things get tough, because it's most likely to happen!

Dominique Thorne, who plays Riri in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, appeared sceptical when asked about the topic with, saying, "I don't know man, that's just something you'll have to tune in to find out about."


Thorne did mention that Ironheart's most enjoyable feature is the "ensemble of the core ensemble." This certainly makes it sound like Marvel has more than a few surprises on their plate, and it's okay to leave our expectations high this time around.

After Shuri, Okoye's inclusion in the program would make the most sense. During Wakanda Forever, she shared the screen with Riri, as the two slapped funny words at each other throughout the program. Marvel may also want to get fans excited about the rumored Okoye solo series, killing two birds with one stone.

Riri is still unknown how precisely the CIA got their hands on her Vibranium detector designs, and we certainly don't think they're done with her that easily. Back in the United States, and without the protection of Wakanda's kingdom, Riri is exposed to malicious minds who may wish to exploit her talent for personal gain.

Val, played by Julia Louis-Dreyfus, has been lurking in the shadows of several MCU appearances so far in the Multiverse Saga, and while we're still not sure what exactly her end goal is, her role as the director of the CIA in Wakanda Forever may only spell trouble for Riri. Both John Walker and Yelena Belova have fallen for Val's schemes, so may Riri be the next?


We can't ignore the fact that Namor spent the entire film obsessed with trying to kill Riri for making the stolen Vibranium detectors. While his intentions appeared to be misplaced (shouldn't he instead pursue the CIA?) it appeared that Namor's main objective was to destroy the surface world.

Namor is definitely sticking around in the Marvel Cinematic Universe as the second confirmed mutant in the franchise, following Kamala Khan, which is expected to include the X-Men in the future. There's a possibility that his and Riri's paths might cross once more.
