After the successful launch of both “Marvel Rising: Initiation” and “Marvel Rising: Secret Warriors,” 2 more animated specials are coming soon to the Marvel Rising Universe. The specials entitled “Marvel Rising: Chasing Ghosts” and “Marvel Rising: Heart Of Iron” will be bringing back Ghost-Spider and introducing Riri Williams, who is better known as Ironheart, into the universe.
Starting with “Marvel Rising: Chasing Ghosts,” it’s going to be 22 minutes long, and we are getting the return of Ghost-Spider. And she is teaming up with the Secret Warriors to take down Sheath and Exile for good. Now, Dove Cameron is coming back to reprise her role as Ghost-Spider, and she said that “I am so excited to return to the world of ‘Marvel Rising. It’s so rewarding to be part of a project that resonates with girls, and speaks to topics and subject matters we can all relate to.” And you can check out the trailer for it above.
As for “Marvel Rising: Heart Of Iron,” we are getting the introduction of Riri Williams into the Marvel Rising Universe. Her short will be 44 minutes long, and it will be showing her adjusting to college life, and we’re going to also see her be socially isolated because she is younger than her classmates. But when her best friend is kidnapped, Riri finds inspiration in her hero, Tony Stark, and hatches a plan to defeat Hala once and for all. And you can see what Riri’s character design looks like below:
Now, one of my favorite actresses, Sofia Wiley, from Disney Channel’s “Andi Mack” is going to be voicing Riri Williams in “Heart Of Iron,” and she had this to say about voicing the character and joining the Marvel Rising family: “I feel so honored to be a part of the Marvel family, but more importantly I’m excited to join a cast of diverse, strong intelligent women! I can’t wait for fans to see my character and to see a little of themselves in this powerful young woman.”
Cort Lane, who is Marvel’s Senior Vice President of Animation & Family Entertainment had said that “We believe girls and boys are going to be so thrilled to see what happens next for The Secret Warriors, and watch new heroes shake up the team,” so I’m pretty excited to see what Ghost-Spider and Ironheart bring to the team.
Now the original cast from both the Initiation shorts and the Secret Warriors movie will be coming back for these new shorts. As for where both shorts will be airing and when they will be airing, no news for that just yet. But you can stay tuned to That Hashtag Show for the latest Marvel Rising news.
