A design for Namor the Sub-Mariner was possibly teased in this Black Panther: Wakanda Forever art.
There is much interest in Marvel Studios’ upcoming sequel, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever. Obviously, audiences will have a bittersweet return to the fictional country given that King T’Challa himself, Chadwick Boseman, passed away back in 2020. However, this return will hopefully further ingratiate audiences into the Wakandan life. Even though story details are minimal at this time, there have been rumblings that Namor the Sub-Mariner may be making his MCU debut in the upcoming film.
Possible concept art for Namor in the upcoming film has emerged online, albeit in blurry form. You can check it out down below:
Along with the emergence of this possible concept art, it sounds like Namor may have an updated origin story. According to a new rumor, the character will be based in the Central American region and come from a historic city of submerged Mexican culture.
It is worth noting that the possibility of Namor being updated with a new origin story is in fact a rumor, and is not confirmed by Marvel Studios in any sort of way. However, the idea of the character being an opportunity to bring Mexican culture into the MCU could be something really exciting to introduce, especially as part of the conflict in a new Black Panther movie.
Directed by Ryan Coogler from a script he co-wrote with Joe Robert Cole, the film stars Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira, Martin Freeman, Daniel Kaluuya, Letitia Wright, Winston Duke, Angela Bassett, Dominique Thorne, and Michaela Coel.
