Rumors have it that Marvel’s seafaring character Namor could make an appearance in the Black Panther sequel to kick off his own franchise.
Few details are known about the new Black Panther movie: Wakanda Forever, beyond the fact that it is being one of the most complicated shoots in the entire history of the UCM, not only for having been left without a protagonist after the death of Chadwick Boseman, but also for the complicated injury from which Letitia Wrigth has had to recover.
And now that everything seems to have returned to normal, with the return of the actress to Atlanta to continue shooting the film, the rumor machine has already started and, on this occasion, it affirms that the sequel to Black Panther will be the film debut of Namor, the Atlantean from Marvel Comics.
And not only that, because as the web has published bleedingcool, this debut will be the beginning of its own franchise of films starring the marine superhero. Well, for those who don’t know him, Namor is Marvel’s Man from Atlantis, who was created in 1939 and has made numerous appearances throughout the long life of comics.
Born of an Atlantean and a human, Namor has almost always functioned as an antihero in comics., where he ends up fighting with the superheroes for trying to take revenge on the surface humans who were destroying his marine ecosystem.
Is It would not be the first time that Namor has been tried to reach the big screen, because there was a time when Universal took over the rights to this character to carry out a film directed by Chris Columbus along with Jonathan Mostow.
However, the project never went ahead, but if Marvel is considering introducing this man of the seas in the UCM it seems clear that he has recovered the rights to it. At the moment, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is scheduled for release on November 11, 2022.
