Shea Couleé, born Jaren Kyei Merrell, spoke about the part in the new show Ironheart, describing it as “impactful” and “sexy.”

According to the Daily Wire, the show centers around character Riri Williams, who “creates the most advanced suit of armor since Iron Man,” who happens to be a drag queen.

“It’s really so humbling to be able to crossover into a much more mainstream avenue, and push the needle forward as far as drag is concerned, in the way that it’s consumed and in pop culture,” Couleé explained.

“I’m so deeply excited for everyone to see what this role is, what it entails and everything it is.”

Couleé continued, describing the experience working at Marvel as a crossdresser.

“Everyone at Marvel has been so unbelievably open and receptive to my experiences and my expertise about drag,” Shea added.

“And they’ve allowed me to really come in to the [Marvel Cinematic Universe] and put my very specific Shea Coulee print on the Marvel Universe.”

Couleé, who was a winner on RuPaul’s Drag Race, recently tweeted about the part on the Marvel show.

“BEYOND excited to be strutting out of the Werkroom right into the Marvel Cinematic Universe,” Couleé tweeted. “Words cannot express how excited I am to be a part of this amazing project!”

Disney+ has become increasingly woke, but the streaming service is also adding R-rated films despite previous contrary statements.
