In the Marvel Comics universe, the new hero Ironheart attended the comic version of MIT. So the real-world version of the school decided to throw a wink at Riri Williams with a new live-action video.

MIT creates a video every year in honor of "Pi Day" (aka March 14, 03.14), where they also announce which students have been accepted to the school. This year, the video is a live-action vignette about Riri Williams, tracking the construction of her Iron Man armor and a few test flights around the campus. For a school project, the production values are solid — and this is probably the only chance we'll have to see Riri in live action, at least for the foreseeable future.

Check out the video short below. You can track Riri's in-canon adventures in the pages of Marvel's Invincible Iron Man run.
