Solo: A Star Wars Story

Things We Saw Today: Alden Ehrenreich Cast in Marvel’s ‘Ironheart’

Plus Emmys, 'Our Flag Means Death', and more!

Alden Ehrenreich is poised to join another Disney mega-franchise. The Solo: A Star Wars Story star has joined the cast of Marvel and Disney+’s Ironheart series in an undisclosed role. The series stars Dominique Thorne (If Beale Street Could Talk) as Riri Williams, a genius inventor who creates a suit that rivals Tony Stark’s Iron Man creation. Williams quickly takes on the mantle of Ironheart becoming a superhero in her own right. The six-episode series will be part of Marvel’s Phase Four, and is expected to premiere in 2023. The character will make her onscreen debut in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, which hits theaters in November.

Ehrenreich’s character hasn’t been revealed yet, but he’ll be joining Anthony Ramos (In the Heights), Manny Montana (Mayans M.C.), and Lyric Ross (This Is Us). Ehrenreich most recently appeared as John in Peacock’s adaptation of Brave New World and will appear in Christopher Nolan’s Oppenheimer in 2023.

We’ll have to wait and see who Ehrenreich is playing, and what his role will be in the Marvel cinematic universe. The series is currently filming in Atlanta and Chicago.

Chelsea was born and raised in New Orleans, which explains her affinity for cheesy grits and Britney Spears. An pop culture journalist since 2012, her work has appeared on Autostraddle, AfterEllen, and more. Her beats include queer popular culture, film, television, republican clownery, and the unwavering belief that 'The Long Kiss Goodnight' is the greatest movie ever made. She currently resides in sunny Los Angeles, with her husband, 2 sons, and one poorly behaved rescue dog. She is a former roller derby girl and a black belt in Judo, so she is not to be trifled with. She loves the word “Jewess” and wishes more people used it to describe her.
