We don’t normally traffick in set photos here, but if they actually reveal something interesting, well, then who are we to ignore it? Marvel Studios has a ton of stuff going on right now, and one of those is the upcoming Ironheart series. That show is going to be a big deal, especially with the character Riri Williams (Dominique Thorne) debuting in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever. Well, there’s another reason to be keeping a close eye on it, and it’s the character being played by In the Heights star Anthony Ramos.
While Ramos’ role has been kept a secret until now, set photos by JustJared have confirmed that he is actually playing Parker Robbins aka The Hood.
The Hood is, in my opinion, one of the best Marvel Comics villains in decades. A combination of Scarface-style gangster with an evil mage of the occult, The Hood seeks to rule the NYC criminal underworld, armed with a pair of pistols and magical abilities gained from the Doctor Strange villain, Dormammu.
So The Hood is a character who can cross paths with numerous Marvel heroes. He’d make just as much sense battling Moon Knight or Daredevil as he would Doctor Strange. He could turn up as part of the Thunderbolts, or crucial to the Secret Invasion storyline as his powers can see through their shapeshifting disguises.
Color me very excited about this and the Ironheart series as a whole.
