There were a few news updates in the Marvel Cinematic Universe realm on Thursday. Here’s a breakdown of some new information we learned.

New details on ‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’ trailer

Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige told ComicBook.com that the first trailer for the upcoming “Spider-Man: No Way Home” is on the way. He just wouldn’t say when.

  • “‘Shang-Chi’ is coming out, the ‘Eternals’ trailer just came out, but yes on Dec. 17, we have the third in our ‘Homecoming’ trilogy with Sony and Jon Watts and with Tom Holland,” Feige said. “I can only guarantee there will be a trailer before the movie comes out.”

Ironheart to debut in ‘Black Panther: Wakanda Forever’

Ironheart — the young superhero who has connections to Iron Man — will make her debut in the “Black Panther” sequel, titled “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.” ComicBook.com was the first to report the story.

  • Dominique Thorne will play the role of Ironheart in the film. The superhero’s real name is Riri Williams, and she has been cast already in the “Ironheart” series for Disney+.

Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige told ComicBook.com that Thorne will make her debut in “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, though.

In the comics, Tony Stark reaches out to Riri Williams to give her an armored suit. It’s unclear how that will unfold in a live-action version of the series.

  • There were some rumors back in 2019 that Downey would reportedly do voiceover work for “Ironheart” that would help Williams train as Ironheart, as I wrote for the Deseret News.

New ‘Eternals’ poster debuts with trailer

Marvel Studios released a new poster for its upcoming film, “Eternals.”

  • The poster shows the Eternals — “a group of immortal heroes forced out of the shadows to reunite against mankind’s oldest enemy, The Deviants,” according to a Marvel press release — walking together on what appears to be a beach.

The poster debuted on the same time as the final trailer for the film. The trailer shows off how Thanos’ Snap — and the return of people from their disappearance — created an energy to allow a bigger villain to come to Earth.
