The First Non-Binary Actor in the United Kingdom Teases Historic Disney+ Role ...

With the introduction of Dominique Thorne's Riri Williams in the Ironheart Disney+ series, Marvel Studios is about a year away. And with a cast that already boasts Hamilton's Anthony Ramos and Solo: A Star Wars Story's AldenEhrenreich, the show also brings a different experience with the addition of the MCU's first non-binary star.

This milestone occurred when Marvel Studios officially cast RuPaul's Drag Race's Shea Coulee in an unidentified role in Ironheart.Coulee already shared their excitement about the news across their social media pages, expressing their pure gratification to star in acting via the Marvel Cinematic Universe:

As Ironheart prepares for its release on Disney+, it will take a while until fans discover who Coulee is playing in the show. However, now, the upcoming actor has shared much more about the show's future.

The Ironheart Star Teases a Historic MCURole

Shea Coulee, a newcomer for Marvel Studios, spoke with E! News about their upcoming role in Marvel Studios'Ironheart, which will be released on Disney+ in Fall 2023.

It's "so humbling" to enter the world of mainstream content and break new boundaries with the world of drag, equities in particular considering what they will bring to the show in this regard:

"It's really so humbling to be able to enter a more mainstream avenue and push the needle forward as far as drag is concerned, in the way that it is consumed and in pop culture." "I'm so appreciative for everyone to see what this role is, what it entails, and what it is."

They also commended Marvel Studios for being "so unbelievably open and receptive" to their own industry experience, allowing the former drag queen to put their stamp on the MCU:

"Everyone at Marvel has been so open and open to my experiences and my drag knowledge. They have allowed me to really come in to the Marvel Cinematic Universe and put my very specific Shea Couleeprint on the Marvel Universe."

Coulee had the audience at the end by teasing that the show will be "really beneficial," indicating how much the city of Chicago will have an influence on everything that happens in the plot:

"It's going to be really positive. It's so smart and creative and funny, and sexy. And so, so, so Chicago."

Shea Coulee sends her drag to the MCU.

While Shea Coulee kept up on their roles in Ironheart in Marvel Studios, they made it clear that they will transform the world of drag into the Marvel Cinematic Universe upon their arrival.

Although the game's development is still a mystery, they explained how much support Marvel has provided for their country in expanding its operations towards better representation. These efforts take a major step forward as the franchise's first non-binary actor comes in Ironheart, and Coulee hasn't expressed their gratitude about joining the MCU.

With more than a year to go until Ironheart's debut, there will likely only be modest suggestions and teases about the new actor's future role, while Marvel remains employing every technique possible to keep details hidden. Nevertheless, this casting alone should have viewers interested in seeing more information, particularly as Riri Williams' position in the Marvel Cinematic Universe becomes more confident after her appearance in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.

Ironheart is currently filming and will be released on Disney+ in Fall 2023.
