On Thursday, Marvel Studios released the second and final trailer for their upcoming Eternals film. Unlike the first one, this one contained a lot more details on what to expect in the Phase Four film.
During an interview with ComicBook.com this week, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige announced that actress Dominique Thorne will make her MCU debut as Riri Williams (aka Ironheart) in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.
“We’re shooting Black Panther: Wakanda Forever right now, and the character of Riri Williams, you will meet in Black Panther 2 first,” Feige revealed. “She started shooting, I think, this week before her Ironheart series.”
The news wasn’t all that surprising. Back in April, it was reported that the film was in the works with Falcon and the Winter Soldier showrunner Malcolm Spellman and Dalan Musson tapped to pen the script.
Marvel Studios’ upcoming Disney+ series Armor Wars, starring Don Cheadle as James Rhodes (aka War Machine), took a big step in its development process. On Friday, multiple outlets reported that the studio hired Yassir Lester as the show’s head writer.
The hiring reunites Lester with Cheadle, as the two worked together on the Showtime series Black Monday. His other writing credits include The Carmichael Show and Girls. Before he was a writer/actor, Lester worked as a stand-up comedian.
