According to a new report, Riri Williams in Wakanda Forever is a sizeable role on not just a small cameo. Riri Williams already has her own show, Ironheart coming. However it looks like Williams (Dominique Thorne) will make her debut in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever. It was only a few weeks ago we covered the story that Williams was going to appear in Wakanda Forever. However, the same source, Lizzie Hill of The Cosmic Circus says she has since found out the role is more akin to America Chavez in Multiverse of Madness than just a small cameo role.
Oh and you know what? I should add… this is NOT just a little cameo introduction. In fact, I would say, from what I've heard, expect Riri to have as big a part as America or Kamala have in the films they're in. #Ironheart #RiriWilliams #DominiqueThorne #BlackPanther https://t.co/qxwxeJAazv

The Kamala Hill refers to is clearly Kamala Khan. Khan will debut in her own Ms. Marvel show, but then jumps to the big screen in The Marvels. It looks like Williams will take the alternate approach, first appearing in Wakanda Forever and then transitioning into her own show. As for what connection Williams could have to Wakanda, I really don’t know? We know Williams is supposed to be the next Tony Stark, but Wakanda already has Shuri filling that role.
There’s surely no doubt now that a Young Avengers show or movie is coming eventually. Phase 4 of the MCU has taken great care so far to set up several Young Avengers, and there are more to come. As for Ironheart herself, I really am not familiar with the character. After all, Ironheart only debuted in Marvel comics back in 2016. At that point we were watching Civil War in theatres. You’d really need to be current on the comics runs to truly have explored the character. I guess we will find out more when Black Panther: Wakanda Forever hits theatres?
