Who might own Avengers Tower in Ironheart?
According to insider @MyTimeToShineH, Avengers Tower was purchased by Mephisto in human form, as the demon owns a tech company. Ironheart villain The Hood — played by Anthony Ramos — will apparently be stealing tech for Mephisto, though why the demonic character is interested in tech is not mentioned.
In the comics, Mephisto is a demon who often makes dangerous deals with others and serves as an antagonist to quite a few Marvel heroes. He’s the being that original Ghost Rider Johnny Blaze sold his soul to as well as the one who took Spider-Man and Mary Jane Watson’s marriage in exchange for Aunt May’s life.
Ironheart will be led by Dominique Thorne (If Beale Street Could Talk), who will be taking on the role of Riri Williams. Joining Thorne are Anthony Ramos (In the Heights), Manny Montana (Good Girls), Lyric Ross (This is Us), Alden Ehrenreich (Solo: A Star Wars Story), Zoe Terakes (Nine Perfect Strangers), Shea Couleé (RuPaul’s Drag Race), Regan Aliyah, and GLOW alum Shakira Barrera.
Ironheart hails from head writer Chinaka Hodge (Snowpiercer). It is being directed by Sam Bailey and Angela Barnes, with Ryan Coogler executive producing through his Proximity banner. The genius titular hero made her MCU debut in last year’s Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.
