Marvel Casts Their MCU Namor

We’ve heard for the better part of two years that Namor The Sub-Mariner may be the antagonist for the second Black Panther movie. Then the tragic and untimely passing of actor Chadwick Boseman caused massive changes in the film’s direction. Now officially titled Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, the sequel is set to begin production next month.

The role of Namor has been heavily rumored this week to be given to Mexican actor Tenoch Huerta. While he may not be an A-lister in American cinema, he has a pretty impressive list of 68 credits on his IMDB Page. He perhaps most notably portrayed legendary pro wrestler Blue Demon in the series of the same name.

Namor is one of the oldest characters in the Marvel Universe. He first appeared in Marvel Comics #1, published by Timely Comics in 1939.
