In a bid to bring diversity and move away from the cliched superhero movies being made in recent times, the film-makers and the franchise, have decided to bring the gender melange in the superhero characters. So much so that, they are replacing Tony Stark with a teenage girl as the next Iron Man.
So going by the reports, Tony Stark won't be guarding the city and fighting evil in his red iron suit anymore. He will rather be replaced by a 15year-old girl named as Riri Williams. Riri is expected to be even more than her predecessor Tony Stark.
Brian Michael Bendis, the Iron Man writer said, "And this story of this brilliant, young woman whose life was marred by tragedy that could have easily ended her life, just random street violence, and went off to college was very inspiring to me."
"I thought that was the most modern version of a superhero or superheroine story I had ever heard." He added.
Brian also hinted on more gender diversities to be seen in the upcoming superhero movies as Spiderman and even the mighty Thor will be replaced by female leads. Now it will be interesting to see how fans would react to these ideas from the Marvel Production house.
