Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is now playing in theaters, and it has managed to awe fans and critics alike. With a critics score of 84% and an audience score of 95%, it is one of the highest-rated MCU movies of all time. It has received an ‘A’ score from CinemaScore as well. At the box office, it is currently at $342M, in just 4 days since its release.
The movie introduced Dominique Thorne as Riri Williams AKA Ironheart and helped set the character up for her solo series, Ironheart. Filming for the series wrapped up just two weeks ago, and the production team was gifted custom Ironheart shoes as wrap gifts for the series.
In an interview with Screen Rant, Wakanda Forever actor Dominique Thorne talked about how she received an opportunity to speak with Robert Downey Jr. while filming Wakanda Forever.
The highest-paid MCU actor told her, “Riri Williams is and should always be her own person”. Fun fact: an A.I. version of Tony Stark in the comics assisted Riri in creating her second armor.

Ironheart is slated to release during Fall 2023, only on Disney+.
