Today, Deadline announced that actor Manny Montana has joined the cast of Marvel Studios Ironheart series on Disney+ as a series regular. He is best known for his role in Good Girls. He joins Dominique Thorne who will cameo first as Riri Williams in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever before spinning off to her own show.
His character is being kept under wraps but he could be up for the series’ main villain. Back in February, a casting call breakdown circulated from Daniel Ritchman’s Patreon that Marvel was looking for a “Justin Timberlake-type” from his tech role in 2010’s The Social Network. The breakdown described the character as “Charismatic, smarmy, charming, attractive, sleek. Yoga body. He is the baddie of this season. Has a crew under him.” The character is expected to be the long-lost son of Iron Man villain Obediah Stane (originally played by Jeff Bridges). Anthony Ramos and Lyric Ross also joined the cast several months ago. Sam Bailey and Angela Barnes will direct several episodes of the project.
