Marvel Studios had introduced Riri Williams in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, and she was set to have her own series on Disney+ later this year. As it turns out, the WGA and SAG AFTRA strike have resulted in the series getting pulled from release.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Ironheart, which had completed all its production before the strike, has been pulled from its fall release and currently doesn’t have a release window. We don’t know when the series could come out, but it would probably be dependent on the currently ongoing strikes.
If anything, Marvel has done a complete re-shuffle of their series, with Echo set to come out next year as well as X-Men ’97. Agatha: Coven of Chaos was also set to come out this winter, but now they’ve pushed the series back to next fall, and the show has also had its name changed to Agatha: Darkhold Diaries.
The only show that is managing to keep its 2023 release window is Loki Season 2 which is still coming out in October. Besides that, it looks like the only other show that is coming out later this year is the second season of What If…? which we haven’t even got a teaser for yet.
Going back to Ironheart though, we don’t know the exact reason for the delay, but a lot of fans are hoping that it doesn’t suffer the same fate as DC’s Batgirl and gets cancelled completely even after production had finished.
Hopefully Marvel provides an update soon.
Watch out for Loki 2 when it releases on Disney+ on Oct. 6.
