According to We Got This Covered, bosses are prepping for a series based on Ironheart, the teenage genius who continues Stark’s legacy in the comic books.

Bosses later drafted in sociologist Eve Ewing when they launched a standalone comic for Ironheart in 2018. Earlier this year, the writer introduced Downey Jr. at a gala where he gave his approval for Ironheart to take over from Ironman in the Marvel universe.

As well as the Ironman reboot, Disney chief exec Bob Iger has already confirmed reimaginations of a number of fan favorites.
