According to The Wrap, newcomer Harper Anthony is the latest actor to join Marvel’s Ironheart series at Disney+.
The actor joins previously announced Dominique Thorne, Lyric Ross, and Anthony Ramos.
Thorne will star as the titular prodigy whose real name is Riri Williams, and who follows in the footsteps of genius billionaire playboy philanthropist Tony Stark in the comics.
Ross will play her best friend, while Anthony’s role will remain under wraps similar to Ramos.
Other than previous, one-off roles in NBC’s Chicago Med and the independent series Vulture City, this will be Anthony’s first major role.
With filming slated to begin later this year, we expect more casting announcements soon.
Prior to her own show, fans will meet Riri Williams later this year in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.
