“I think one of the beautiful things about Riri is that when we meet her, both in the comics and on screen, we’re meeting someone in the middle of their routine. We’re starting to spy on someone right in the middle of their life. We didn’t have that origin story we might expect when we know a new hero is coming,” he said.
“Instead, it feels more like a day in the life of a 19-year-old student who also does crazy things in her spare time and now kind of has to deal with it.”

“I think when we get the chance to delve into her world in ironheartwe’ll also have the opportunity to explore who Riri is when things aren’t so over the top, and also see what adventures she can get into. […]”, added Dominique.
