Anthony Ramos Confirmed As The Hood In Marvel’s ‘Ironheart’ Series, Jim Rash Joins Cast
Just announced at Marvel’s presentation at D23: Anthony Ramos WILL be playing The Hood in the upcoming Disney+ series Ironheart. Additionally, Community star Jim Rash will join the cast.
Ramos’ role has admittedly been one of the studios worst kept secrets in recent memory, especially after set photos leaked of the actor in costume a few months ago.
Funny enough, this isn’t Jim Rash’ s first time in a Marvel project. He had a brief role in 2016’s Captain America: Civil War. It’s unclear if he will be reprising that role in the series though.
Ironheart, revolves around Riri Williams (played by Dominique Thorne) as a teenage engineering genius at MIT who builds a suit based on Tony Stark’s Iron Man and dons the superhero name Ironheart. The character was created in 2016 by writers Brian Michael Bendis, and artist Mike Deodato, and later redesigned by Eve Ewing and Kevin Libranda.
Other actors attached besides Thorne, Ramos, and Rash include Manny Montana (Good Girls), Lyric Ross (This Is Us), Harper Anthony (Chicago Med), and Alden Ehrenreich (Solo: A Star Wars Story). There is also a possibility Sam Jackson could appear as Nick Fury.
Sam Bailey and Angela Barnes are directing Ironheart from a script by Chinaka Hodge (Amazing Stories), who also serves as the head writer on the six-episode first season. Zinzi Coogler, Sev Ohanian, and Black Panther director Ryan Coogler have also joined the team as executive producers alongside Kevin Feige, Louise D’Esposito, Victoria Alonso, Brad Winderbaum, and Zoie Nagelhout.
The character will make her official MCU in the highly anticipated sequel Black Panther: Wakanda Forever which is set to hit theaters on November 11, 2022.
