Robert Downey Jr. who plays billionaire playboy Tony Stark in the Marvel cinematic universe, has responded to the creation of a new Iron Man. The actor took to Twitter to approve the creation of Riri Williams, who will take over from Tony Stark as the armoured superhero, Iron Man.
According to Marvel writer, Brian Michael Bendis, the occurrence at the end of the comic-book “Civil War II” will lead to Stark dropping his suit as Iron Man. A position that would be taken over by 15-year-old black girl Riri Williams. Riri is a Chicago-born teenage genius who built her own version of the Iron Man suit in a dorm room at MIT.
