We don’t know much about the planned sequel to Black Panther: Wakanda Forever because it is still many months away, but there have been persistent reports that Namor will play a key role in the film.
Speculation has grown, especially since the casting of Tenoch Huerta, with many thinking that the actor will play Namor in the MCU. A first glance at the character has now been leaked in new promotional graphics.
A fuzzy promotional image from Black Panther: Wakanda Forever has been making the rounds online, according to The Direct, revealing an indication of the MCU’s concept for the Sub-Mariner.
The hazy image looks to be inspired by the character’s iconic 1960s look, complete with a green and gold color palette.
Namor appears to be wearing green swim trunks with a gold belt in the image, but he also has gold armor on his arms, a green collar around his neck and chest, and what appears to be armor on his legs and ankles.
Even in the blurred image, references to ankle wings are clear — though whether they are part of the character’s physiology or part of the armored items he’s wearing is still a bit of a mystery. Namor also appears to either be wearing some sort of earrings in the blurred image or has longer hair that is tucked behind the ears for a similar effect.
