Ahead of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever’s November 11 release, Marvel Studios dropped a stunning new trailer on October 3.

The Wakanda Forever trailer is packed with new characters, from the mutant Namor to a new hero donning the Black Panther suit.

It also gives us our best look yet at the MCU’s version of Riri Williams and her Ironheart armor.

The trailer shows Riri Williams (Dominique Thorne) surrounded by scrap, assembling the Ironheart armor in a decidedly low-tech way.

When Ironheart springs from the workshop it’s clear it’ll be an impressive piece of tech, as we see Riri taking flight in her armor.

This version of Ironheart is chunky, more like a heavy suit of armor than the sleek Iron Man suit.

Another shot shows the armor’s heads-up display, which looks like others we’ve seen in the MCU.

Here’s Riri building and piloting the armor, with an in-suit view at the end.

It seems Ironheart will be much more than just a walk-on in Wakanda Forever. There’s screen time devoted to Williams building the armor, and at least two scenes where she’s wearing it.

That’s fitting, since we’ll be seeing a lot more Ironheart soon. Dominique Thorne also stars in the Ironheart Disney+ series, set to premiere in fall 2023.

While Ironheart is new to the MCU, Riri has been in Marvel comics since 2016, when she appeared in Invincible Iron Man.

The comic version of Williams is a 15-year-old MIT student who bases her armor on Iron Man’s. When she goes public after stopping a crime, Tony Stark backs her decision to become a superhero full-time.

Since then, she’s mostly been a figure in Iron Man comics, before getting her own series in 2018.

Things are obviously much different in the MCU, where advanced Wakandan technology provides Williams with a path to becoming Ironheart.
