“In the Heights” star Anthony Ramos will be entering the Marvel Cinematic Universe, joining the upcoming series “Ironheart” at Disney+.
Ramos joins previously announced series lead Dominique Thorne, who will star as Marvel character Riri Williams, a genius inventor and the creator of the most advanced suit of armor since Iron Man. In the comics, the character built her own version of the Iron Man suit in an MIT dorm. Details on Ramos’ role are being kept under wraps.
Ramos broke out with his role in the original Broadway cast of Hamilton. In addition to In the Heights, his on-screen credits include HBO’s In Treatment, Netflix’s She’s Gotta Have It and A Star Is Born. He next will appear in another franchise — Transformers: Rise of the Beasts — which wrapped principal photography ahead of a planned 2023 release.
