Will Namor Be A Hero Or A Villain In The MCU?

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is heavily rumored to introduce Namor the Sub-Mariner into the MCU, but will the King of Atlantis be a hero or a villain? Black Panther 2 is currently slated for release in November 2022 with Ryan Coogler returning to direct. The film will apparently focus more on the fictional nation of Wakanda as a whole following the tragic passing of T’Challa actor Chadwick Boseman.

This focus on the country rather than its King could be how Marvel chooses to introduce Atlantis to the MCU, another fictional nation. It is heavily rumored that Netflix’s Narcos: Mexico star Tenoch Huerta will be playing the role of Namor.
