The Marvel universe continues to grow as Disney+ adds the new series Ironheart to its ranks. Joining this exciting new show is the talented Lyric Ross! Viewers are likely to recognize Ross for her work on the hit show, This Is Us.
Ironheart is based on the comic book character of the same name. Viewers will follow the young Riri Williams, a very smart college student at MIT. Riri figures out a way to reverse engineer the technology used in Iron Man’s suit to make one of her own. Soon she joins the life of a superhero.
