Ironheart, played by Dominique Thorne’s Riri Williams in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, discussed how Robert Downey Jr. gave her support while she worked on her future Disney+ series. The strange thing, though, is that there doesn’t seem to be any relationship between Riri and the Iron Man who bears her name. Despite this, Williams was still able to speak with Downey Jr. directly before Ironheart came to an end. His counsel? The former Avenger made it plain that “Riri Williams is and should always be her own person,” as Thorne previously recounted.
Advice from Robert Downey Jr. for Ironheart Actress
As part of Puff’s campaign at Children’s Healthcare Atlanta, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever and Ironheart actress Dominique Thorne spoke privately to Russ Milheim for The Direct. She discussed obtaining advise from none other than Robert Downey Jr. Thorne acknowledged that “he did” give Riri further advise in addition to telling her to always be true to yourself, and that the exchange “was such a whirlwind one:”
“He did. It was really a wonderful talk, you know. And I believe that the timing of it in particular was what was perhaps the most important. This happened just as shooting was coming to a conclusion. It was clearly a whirlwind, as you can probably guess.“
The actress claims that Downey told her right away that “he didn’t have any suggestions for her:”
“So, he and I didn’t really get much of an opportunity to get to know one another before, but maybe that worked out rather well, because he really mentioned that he didn’t have any counsel for me when we initially started talking or near the conclusion of the chat. He believed that I would be fine and that I was actually fairly okay.“
However, Thorne acknowledged that she would “have to cherish close and dear to her heart” the second part of what the Iron Man star had to say:
“And he spoke a lot about… making sure Riri is her own person, and all of the things that I can plainly connect to her existence, and what it means, and what it symbolises, and what it can bring…,” the author said. Simply in the spirit of fostering that and being genuine to it and being real to it The second half, I believe, is something I must hold close to my heart. He undoubtedly provided me some advice, which I appreciate, as I continue to navigate everything this world has to offer. However, there’s no denying that the talk was enjoyable.
Although Riri Williams and Tony Stark both produce cutting-edge armour and share a name, there is currently no relationship between the two; nevertheless, may there be one in the future?That raises the subsequent query: will Iron Man, played by Robert Downey Jr., appear in any of Ironheart’s episodes?
Most likely not physically, given that he is already deceased. It’s also difficult to envision any forced flashbacks. One way he may appear, though, is as an AI. The AI in Riri William’s suit is modelled after Tony Stark from the comics. This may allow viewers to see more of Iron Man in a distinctive way.
