One of the most anticipated and speculative films of Marvel Studios, black panther 2 may bring a new character to its cast: Namor, the Undersea Prince. According to information obtained by the website Illuminerdi, the protagonist will be played by Tenoch Huerta on the big screen (Narcos: Mexico) and will appear alongside figures such as Namora and Attuma.
Although naturally associated with the Fantastic Four universe, the character has also appeared in several Avengers and X-Men stories, among other groups. In Marvel’s Cinematic Universe (MCU), there is a small reference to its existence in Avengers: Ultimatum, in the speech Okoye mentions about the existence of an underwater earthquake.
In the comics, Namor appeared in the pages of 1939 Marvel Comics #1, published by Timely Comics, the precursor to today’s Marvel Comics. Created by Bill Everett, he was once an enemy (and later an ally) of the United States, an anti-hero who could fight and ally with the Fantastic Four, and more recently, himself as the first of history. Mutants – an element that may have helped introduce this concept to the MCU.
So far, little is known about the story of Black Panther 2, which received lukewarm comments from actor Martin Freeman—who later publicly praised the script in an interview with The One Show. Again directed by Ryan Coogler, the film would be known in the United States as Black Panther: Wakanda Forever And 2020 shouldn’t offer a replacement for the protagonist played in the first film by cancer survivor Chadwick Boseman.
Apart from the official title, little has been confirmed about the feature film, which is scheduled to premiere on July 8, 2022. Currently in the pre-production stage, the shooting of the sequel should start soon, which should be accompanied by new leaks. And more definitions of what we can expect from its history.
