What will Mephisto’s appearance in Ironheart be like?
Insider @CanWeGetToast revealed that Mephisto will apparently appear “mostly” in his human form rather than in his demon form. Rather, the Marvel Cinematic Universe show will feature only “glimpses” of his true demonic appearance.
The same insider also detailed a previous report about Marvel villain The Hood stealing tech for Mephisto, noting that the tech will be used to build “an advanced Bio-Suit” in the series.
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 MCU debut in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, which arrived in theaters last November.
