MCU newcomer Anthony Ramos might’ve revealed Ryan Coogler’s involvement with the upcoming Ironheart series.
Ironheart is currently rounding out its cast with Anthony Ramos recently joining the Disney Plus series where he will reportedly play the villain. The Ironheart star was recently asked by Extra TV about being part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The 30-year-old actor also namedropped Black Panther director Ryan Coogler as someone he’s been able to work with on Ironheart:
Extra TV: “You’re about to join the MCU, that’s a huge family.”
Ramos: ‘I am and I’m excited. I’m so excited. I’ve been wanting…yeah, I used to be like in the gym, I’d be like, ‘Come on Marvel call, come on Marvel call, let’s go!’”
Extra TV: “Yeah, you finally got the phone call. You are already part of that family because once you’re in, you’re in.”
Ramos: “Yeah that’s what we hope for. I feel blessed. It’s an amazing project. Incredible people, Chinaka Hodge and Ryan Coogler, and just like a dope squad, Dominique Thorne and I feel blessed and grateful.”
Anthony Ramos’ comment about Ryan Coogler being part of Ironheart comes as no surprise since Dominque Thorne will make her debut as Riri Williams in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever. Coogler is also developing a Wakanda series for Disney Plus.
Here is the synopsis for Ryan Coogler’s first Black Panther film:
After the death of his father, the king of Wakanda, young T’Challa returns home to the isolated high-tech African nation to succeed to the throne and take his rightful place as king. But when a powerful enemy reappears, T’Challa’s mettle as king – and Black Panther – is tested when he’s drawn into a formidable conflict that puts the fate of Wakanda and the entire world at risk. Faced with treachery and danger, he must release the full power of Black Panther to defeat his foes and secure the safety of his people and their way of life.
Directed by Ryan Coogler, the film stars Chadwick Boseman, Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira, Martin Freeman, Daniel Kaluuya, Letitia Wright, Winston Duke, Angela Bassett, Forest Whitaker, and Andy Serkis.
