This is the Iron Man successor, Ironheart
The fact that Feige is talking about Riri Williams and not her alias Ironheart could indicate that we will get to know her in the Marvel film, but that she will really become the Iron Man successor in her series. Riri is a young student at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology who built her own version of the Iron Man suit. In the comics, Riri is promoted by Tony Stark. However, there is no indication that this will also play a role in the MCU.
Real details about “Black Panther 2” and the role Riri will take are not yet available. In any case, T’Challa’s legacy will be thematized. Feige had indicated this in another interview and it also fits in with the fact that a set video allegedly shows the final resting place of T’Challa.
The announcement that Riri will be the first to appear in “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” can be understood as an indication of the start date of “Ironheart”. Since “Black Panther 2” on July 8, 2022 should start, fans have to expect that the series will definitely only appear after that.
