Black Panther 2: Marvel Legends Gives Look at Upgraded Ironheart Armor
Published 8 months ago
There are a lot of characters to look forward to with Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, but the film is also going to give us Iron Man’s comic protégé Riri Williams a.k.a. Ironheart. We don’t get to see her armor in the trailers, but a recent leak of her Marvel Legends figure gives us a good look at the upgraded suit.

While there are some influences from her pink and black armor from the comics, a lot of fans have pointed out that this new suit kind of looks inspired by anime, from Bubblegum Crisis to Metroid; some are even pointing out the shape could be an homage to the EVAs from Evangelion.
When it comes to the black accents on the suit, I’m guessing that could be some kind of hint at Wakandan technology—kind of like a Black Panther suit got crossed together with Iron Man armor. It’s possible Riri will get something completely different for her own Disney+ series, but I am excited for her arc in which she builds her own makeshift armor, and is helped by Shuri to develop her own Ironheart suit.
Wakanda Forever is still set for a release in November, so we could get one more trailer for the film before it releases; maybe that’s the time we can get a look at Ironheart, because I’m sure there are fans who would want even just a glimpse of the armor.
Catch Black Panther: Wakanda Forever when it comes to theaters on Nov. 11.
