Filming of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever are currently in progress and some images from the set confirm the presence of Riri Williams, alias Ironheart, within the film.
Confirmed a few days ago by Kevin Feige, Ironheart’s debut within the MCU will take place in the second chapter of Black Panther, alongside many other characters from all over the Marvel universe.
Ironheart will make its debut in Wakanda Forever
Before landing in his starring series, Riri Williams aka Ironheart will debut in the second chapter of Black Panter, Wakanda Forever.
To confirm this, or almost, are the photos taken by Telegram.com in Massachussetts, where vehicles from Cambridge appeared on the set. Right there is the Institute of Technology that he attends Riri Williams, during the construction of his Ironheart armor.

In addition to these photos, the president of the Marvel Studios Kevin Feige had declared a few days ago to Comicbook that Riri would make his debut in Black Panther 2:
We are shooting Black Panther: Wakanda Forever right now and Riri Williams’ character will be featured in the film. It will debut in Black Panther and then land in its Ironheart series.
The series was confirmed during Disney’s Investor Day last December and will follow the story of Riri, a brilliant teenager who will be able to build an advanced armor as only Tony Stark had managed to do.
The showrunner of the series coming in 2023 will be Chinaka Hodge, already author of series such as Snowpiercer and Incredible Stories.
What better place for a character to debut like Ironheart if not in Black Panther 2, with Wakandan technology ready to help and empower Riri’s inventions.
Black Panther: Wakanda Forever will arrive in theaters on July 8, 2022, a few months after the release of Thor: Love and Thunder.
