With the actor’s contract coming to an end, Robert Downey Jr’s character, Iron Man is now being expected to leave the franchise after the movie, Avengers 4.
Whether the character will survive, we do not know, but he might get a replacement in the famous, Ironheart.
This black female superhero (Riri Williams) has been mentored by Tony Stark in the comic books, and she takes up the mantle of Iron Man.
The script for Ironheart written by Jada Rodriguez is impressing, and it has appeared on the Hollywood Black List.
This list is made up of the best, unproduced scripts in.
The Black List’s Twitter feed had teased this plot,
“When a young African American girl loses hope in humanity, she dedicates her life, with the help of Tony Stark, to becoming a superhero… not knowing she is her own worst enemy…”
An Ironheart film after the movie, Avengers 4 will surely not be surprising after what Kevin Feige had said:
“Eventually I think we’re going to reach a time where it’s not just… listen, it would be amazing to see all of our female characters the way we have seen … most, never all male, but primarily male.
“I think we’re getting to the point soon where we have so many great female characters that those are just our heroes as opposed to when are they all female, all male.
“It’s just the Marvel heroes, more than half of which will be women.”
Other new female heroes to enter Phase 4 may be Ant-Girl (Cassie Lang) and also Kate Bishop (female Hawkeye).
Captain Marvel and Black Panther’s sister Shuri will surely have a lot more important roles moving ahead.
Avengers 4 will release on April 26, 2019.
