    REPORT - Marvel Studios to Introduce Black, Latina or Afro-Latina Transgender Character in 'Ironheart' | POC Culture

    Assuming this is true, I wonder what the situation is.
    I can't think of any young, nerdy, mystical trans afro-latina Marvel characters. Especially not anyone related to Riri.
    So is this a fully original character?
    A situation of a cis character deliberately changed to be trans for the MCU?
    Does anyone have any ideas?

    The only character that very vaguely comes to my mind is Goodness Silva, who to be fair is young, dark skinned, has a Portuguese sounding last name (I don't think her race or ethnicity have ever been confirmed?), is nerdy with hobbies some find weird, has something mystical to her (and her family) and while never explicitly portrayed as trans has had quite a lot of speculation and headcanon surrounding her potentially being trans or some type of genderqueer from readers at least. Though she has absolutely nothing at all to do with Ironheart, so it doesn't seem very likely to me. Then again they apparently have
    Mr. Immortal
    in She-Hulk so maybe they'd introduce such characters in various shows to spin them off into their own thing later?

    Only person that comes to mind is Moon-Girl and/or Moon Boy. I think there was a few rumors awhile back that said the character was coming to the MCU but I may be wrong on that front

    Moon-Boy is a primitive hominid boy and Moon-Girl is a 4th grader.
    I don't think either of those would be fitting for a 18-22 year old woman.

    Yeah but Marvel's been aging up all their "kids" for awhile now.

    When has the MCU even included any hero that's a preteen in the comics? Even when it comes to teenage characters who have at least gone through puberty to some extent they're not aged up that much.
    Spidey and Ms. Marvel are depicted as highschoolers in the MCU, same as the comics.
    Billy and Tommy Maximoff got their Wiccan and Speed powers while appearing younger than they were in the comics as superheroes.
    America Chavez is played by a 15 year old.
    Cassie Lang was played by a teenager in Endgame and while Kathryn Newton will be a bit older I'm pretty sure she'll be intended to be in her late-teens in Quantumania given that Cassie's date of birth is known.
    The only significant aging up I can think of is Bucky being early 20s instead of 16 in Cap 1 because they wanted him to be a more experienced soldier (and possibly because they knew they wanted the actor for Winter Soldier down the line).

    But I just don't think it makes sense to cast a 22 year old transgender actress to play a character who in the comics is like a 9 year old elementary schooler and does things related to being that age.

    I think it's pretty likely this casting is a classmate of Riri or some other teenage character. But I just can't see it being a preteen.

    Do we know who Anthony Ramos is playing?
    Is it too much to hope he’s Johnny Storm?

    I THINK (take with a grain of salt,) that someone mentioned he's playing The Hood
