IronHeart Villain, The Hood, will be joining the MCU soon. Breakout actor Anthony Ramos can be seen adopting an appearance similar to that of Park Robbins, the mystic street-level Marvel baddie who has been a fan favorite in recent years, in fresh photographs from the set of Ironheart released by JustJared on Monday. Besides Ramos’s confirmation, Riri Williams may be seen wearing the new Ironheart suit.
After deciding to turn to crime, Robbins discovered a magical robe that bestows him with supernatural abilities similar to Doctor Strange or another Master of the Mystic Arts. What sets this figure distinct from other magicians is the fact that he is almost always armed with a gun. The Hood debuted in Brian K. Vaughn and Kyle Hotz’s namesake adult-oriented Marvel MAX series.

Actor Ramos posted an Instagram post in February 2022 announcing his casting on Ironheart:
“We in the @marvel universal mix 🙏🏼🙌🏼 Gracia a Dios por la oportunidad!”
Since January 2022, when a casting bio for one of the show’s primary villains appeared to fit up with the comics’ portrayal of The Hood, fans have speculated that he will appear in Ironheart. After making his debut in Ironheart, Ramos and The Hood are speculated to feature in the Thunderbolts film.
The first image is an excellent representation of the Ironheart costume. Like Tony Stark, our heroine, Riri Williams, will likely make three different versions of her outfit before each episode. The larger design recalls Iron Man and War Machine, the Steel armor from the CW’s Superman & Lois, and the armor from the 2016 film Doom.
See Riri Williams herself, played by Dominique Thorne, below, in a preview featuring her in a simplified suit of armor. The remaining components of the ensemble are indicative of motion capture technology.

After making her Marvel Cinematic Universe debut in 2022’s Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, Dominique Thorne will play Riri Williams/Ironheart in the eponymous series. A suit of armor designed by the brilliant scientist in the Wakanda Forever trailers is comparable to that of Tony Stark/Iron Man’s suit of armor in the comics. Even though Riri’s role in the sequel’s narrative remains a mystery, it seems from the teasers that she is good friends with T’Challa’s younger sister, Shuri.
