“We’re shooting Black Panther: Wakanda Forever right now, and the character of Riri Williams, you will meet in Black Panther 2 first. She started shooting, I think, this week before her Ironheart series,” Feige told ComicBook.com.

Variety reports that “Ironheart, a.k.a. Riri Williams, was introduced in the Marvel comics in 2016 as a 15-year-old MIT student who reverse engineers Iron Man’s armor in order to create her own suit of armor. With the support of Iron Man, a.k.a. Tony Stark, Riri takes on the name Ironheart and becomes a superhero.”
