Now that Tony Stark is no more, fans have been wondering who will take on the Ironman suit. Well, according to Robert Downey JR, Riri Williams’ IronHeart should be Introduced in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
The actor made the reveal over the weekend at the Film Center Heroes Gala honoring Jon Favreau.
The real story here is that @RobertDowneyJr said publicly in a room full of people that #Ironheart should be in the MCU. I went straight back to the press area afterward and was like YOU ALL HEARD IT, WRITE THAT DOWN https://t.co/WoursjnRdW

Riri Williams created in 2015 by writers Brian Michael Bendis, and artist Mike Deodato. She was later redesigned by Eve Ewing and Kevin Libranda. She’s a young science prodigy who had fashioned her own version of Starks’s Iron Man armor using material stolen from campus. IronHeart was introduced in Invincible Iron Man #1 comic written by Brian Michael Bendis and artist Stefano Caselli.
Although a big fan of IronHeart, I think Marvel should first introduce Riri in an animated feature film first like Miles Morales before bringing her in the big screen.
Do you think it’s the right time to introduce IronHeart? Let us know in comments section below.
