We are getting closer to the release of Marvel Studios Black Panther: Wakanda Forever and last week we started to get new looks at the movie’s characters like Shuri and her mother Ramonda, the queen of Wakanda. Now we have our first HQ look at the sequel’s antagonist and a confirmation that will have fans excited for this movie.
Thanks to Empire Magazine, we have a new image of Namor The Sub-Mariner, played by Mexican actor Tenoch Huerta in the movie. Making his first live-action appearance, the character is heavily inspired by Mesoamerican cultures such as the Aztec and Mayan culture. You can see the full picture below:
Tenoch Huerta also spoke to Empire Magazine about the movie and gave some interesting details that will have fans excited to see this new iteration of Namor. Huerta confirmed that Atlantis will now be called Talocan and that they will be coming to the surface thanks to T’Challa’s decision to reveal the truth of Wakanda to the world at the end of the first movie.
“That decision puts Talocan in jeopardy, and [they have] to take action to protect themselves,” said Huerta to Empire.
Huerta also revealed an interesting detail: Namor will be joining Kamala Khan as one of the first mutants in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, making him more similar to his comics counterpart.
Marvel Studios Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, starring Letitia Wright, Winston Duke, Danai Gurira, Tenoch Huerta, Mabel Cadena, Alex Livinalli, Dominique Thorne with Angela Bassett and Martin Freeman will close the MCU’s Phase 4 and will premiere on November 11.
