Marvel Studios‘s upcoming Disney+ series Ironheart has now recruited Sam Bailey and Angela Barnes as directors. Bailey is best known for her previous co-creation of the Emmy-nominated Brown Girls as well as creating Gotham-nominated You’re So Talented. She has also produced and directed the final season of Dear White People on Netflix and Powderkeg’s East of La Brea. As for Barnes, her work includes episodes of both Mythic Quest and Blindspotting, and she’s also directing the upcoming fourth and last season of Donald Glover‘s Atlanta.

Ironheart will follow the origin story of Riri Williams, played by Dominique Thorne, a young genius who invents a suit of armor similar to Tony Stark’s Iron Man suit. Other details regarding the show remain scarce at the moment, but Hamilton and In the Heights star Anthony Ramos will also be starring in the series.

There’s currently no release date or window yet for Ironheart, so those interested should stay tuned for more updates to come.

Elsewhere in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Will Poulter has opened up about his physical transformation for the role of Adam Warlock in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3.
