Namor, the sub-mariner, is one of the characters of the Marvel Universe that fans longed to see in the movie. There are many characters of the Marvel universe who are powerful and loved by the readers and yet have not appeared in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) even once. However, Marvel is going to introduce Namor with their upcoming film, Black Panther 2. The film is scheduled to be released on November 11, 2022, with the official title, “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.” Let’s hope that there are no further delays in the release.
The production team is going to ensure that they give the tribute to Chadwick Boseman, who died of cancer in August 2020. Although the filming was started in June 2021, it got delayed due to numerous reasons, such as the coronavirus pandemic. The team is honoring Chadwick’s legacy and has not cast anyone for T’ Challa. It will be interesting to see how the story would unfold without the character. Since it is the first time Namor will appear on screens, fans are excited to know which actor is playing the character.
Namor In Black Panther 2
The MCU will introduce Namor as the antagonist who is against the people of Wakanda because the country is at war against the long-hidden nation of Atlantis. There is a buzz that Marvel will use the character of Namor for a long time in the coming movies. It is said that we have not yet seen any promo or teaser for the film that could keep us occupied until the release. The production is just promoting the film through art. Only recently, the Twitter user @MCU_Facility shared the official art of the actor in Namor’s character. It was the first time that we got to know who was playing the character, and the fans were divided into two parts, some were delighted, and some were angry. So, the character of Namor is played by the Mexican actor “Tenoch Huerta.”
Who Is Tenoch Huerta?
Tenoch Huerta is a popular name in the Entertainment industry. The Namor’s role is the biggest role in the actor’s career to date. This actor has appeared in numerous roles in the Spanish and Latin American film industries. You can watch him in both feature and short films. Any role he portrays, he usually gets appreciation from critics and fans. Tenoch’s father being a fan of the film world is the biggest advantage for him that paved his path towards the industry. His father got him enrolled in acting classes.
He started working in the industry in 2006 with a minor role in a film. However, the actor rose to fame when he began playing the character of Rafael Caro Quintero in the hit Netflix series “Narcos: Mexico.” The series made him a recognized actor worldwide. The promotional art shared is very similar to Namor’s character in the comics. In the art piece, we can see that he is wearing Mayan-style pieces on his neck and arms with earrings that are aqua blue in color, just like in the comics. However, he is wearing shorts, and in the comics, the character wears a speedo.
