'IronHeart' Commences Filming, Confirms Anthony Ramos

There is no public release date as of yet for the project, but many believe it is a part of Marvel Studios' 2023 Disney+ slate.

Marvel fans can get ready for a whole new superhero adventure, as the official filming of Marvel Studio's upcoming TV series, IronHeart, has commenced, reported comicbook. Dominique Thorne, who plays the title character, was seen filming earlier this month, and on Monday, Anthony Ramos announced that he has also begun shooting.


"We started shooting Marvel. Shit's fire," Ramos said in a livestream on his Instagram account. "Yesterday was my first day. It went well. Shit's about to be crazy."

Ramos's role is yet to be revealed but common speculation suggests the actor could be playing The Hood, adding a certain sense of mysticism to an otherwise technologically-based series. Ramos has been rising to fame after serving in the original cast of Broadway’s Hamilton. His lead role in In the Heights last year helped him become a more well-known actor, and he will soon play the lead in Paramount’s Transformers: Rise of the Beasts.


"I was at home in Delaware and I got a call asking if I would like to play this role. It was the best phone call I could have ever received," Thorne recalled to Empire Magazine about landing the Marvel role, in an interview last year. "I was so shocked, in fact, that there was a considerable lag in the conversation! I was waiting for them to say, like, 'Oh, we'll send you the sides' or, 'Get your tape over to us.' But there was none of that. It was just like, 'Would you like to do this?' It was probably the most unique experience I've ever had because there was no audition at all." 


While it is yet to be seen if Ramos' character will debut in Ironheart or another Marvel property, Thorne's Riri Williams has been confirmed to first appear in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.


The series focuses on Riri Williams (played by Dominique Thorne), an aspiring MIT student who takes on the legacy of Tony Stark, developing her own version of the Iron Man armor. There is no public release date as of yet for the streaming project, but many believe it is a part of Marvel Studios' 2023 Disney+ slate. 

The series will be directed by Sam Bailey (Dear White People) and Angela Barnes (Gillian in Georgia) collaborating with head writer Chinaka Hodge (Snowpiercer). Hodge will also executive produce the show with Black Panther's writer and director, Ryan Coogler.
