Namor is official being introduced to the MCU this year in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever. While fans are eagerly waiting for the first trailer of the new sequel to Black Panther, a promotional artwork has made it to the internet giving us a glimpse of the very first and clear look at the Sub-Mariner as he will be the latest addition to the MCU.
According to the latest reports, Namor is said to be portrayed by Mexican actor Tenoch Huerta (The Forever Purge), and as had been rumoured the design for the character has an Aztec-type feel to it, with the MCU’s Atlantis reportedly located in Central America.
However, the character’s costume also retains the classic green and gold design of the comics.
Along with the artwork, fans are also being treated with another character Attuma, who is a villain and adversary of Namor according to the comics.
Talking about Wakanda Forever, the film is set to release this November, and the trailer is expected to release anytime soon now. Perhaps even coinciding with Thor: Love and Thunder which opens this coming week.
Wakanda Forever reunites director Ryan Coogler with Black Panther stars Danai Gurira, Letitia Wright, Daniel Kaluuya, Winston Duke, Lupita Nyong’o, Florence Kasumba, Angela Bassett and Martin Freeman, with Dominique Thorne making her MCU debut as Riri Williams/Ironheart, and Tenoch Huerta, Michaela Coel and Lake Bell starring in an as-yet-unconfirmed role.
