According to a recent Ironheart rumor, series villain The Hood may be working for a long-awaited Marvel antagonist. Insider @CanWeGetToast has revealed that The Hood — played in the upcoming Disney+ series by Anthony Ramos — is “stealing tech for Mephisto.”
Who is Mephisto in Ironheart?
In Marvel’s comics, Mephisto is a demon and enemy of characters like Ghost Rider and Spider-Man. He was at the center of the much-maligned Spider-Man story “One More Day,” which saw Mephisto save the life of Aunt May. In exchange, Mary Jane’s memories of Peter and their marriage were erased entirely.
Ironheart will be led by Dominique Thorne (If Beale Street Could Talk), who will take on the role of Riri Williams. Joining Thorne are Anthony Ramos (In the Heights), Manny Montana (Good Girls), Lyric Ross (This is Us), Alden Ehrenreich (Solo: A Star Wars Story), Zoe Terakes (Nine Perfect Strangers), Shea Couleé (RuPaul’s Drag Race), Regan Aliyah, and GLOW alum Shakira Barrera.
Ironheart hails from head writer Chinaka Hodge (Snowpiercer). It’s being directed by Sam Bailey and Angela Barnes, with Ryan Coogler executive producing through his Proximity banner.
The genius titular hero made her Marvel Cinematic Universe debut in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, which arrived in theaters last November.
