Zoe Terakes has been cast in the Disney+ series Ironheart in what is believed to be a key role, Deadline reported.
Further details are being kept under wraps.
The actor, who is best known for appearing in Wentworth and Nine Perfect Strangers, will appear alongside Drag Race winner Shea Couleé in the upcoming show.
“Unbelievably stoked,” Terakes wrote on Instagram. “This one’s for the trans guys n girls n theys. So much love.”
The star joins the previously announced actress Dominique Thorne who is set to play Riri Williams, a genius inventor who has created the most advanced suit of armour since Iron Man.
Anthony Ramos, Manny Montana and Alden Ehrenreich are also involved in production.
In 2021, Eternals made history for the Marvel Cinematic Universe by including Phastos (Brian Tyree Henry), its first openly LGBTQ+ superhero.
The film also features Marvel’s first big screen queer couple.
Ironheart is expected to be released in 2023, though an exact date is yet to be confirmed.
