Wakanda Forever is expected to continue the trend of introducing new MCU characters in Phase 4 by showcasing Dominique Thorne's Riri Williams, aka Ironheart, and Tenoch Huerta's reported involvement as Namor the Sub-Mariner, since the latter's inclusion was initially teased until Avengers: Endgame, with Okoye casually stating that there was an underwater earthquake off the coast of Africa that Wakanda decided to ignore.
Namor is expected to have a significant role in Wakanda Forever, according to the Narcos: Mexico actor.Huerta previously revealed that he's learning the Mayan language for his upcoming role, indicating that the Sub-Mariner will have Mayan roots.
The newcomer to the MCU appears to be becoming more open about his role as Namor prior to the sequel's premiere.
Black Panther 2 Makes a Comeback by Namor Actors
Namor's official new Black Panther: Wakanda Forever promo image was unveiled last Sunday, July 3, putting fans at ease that the Marvel anti-hero will appear in the much-anticipated sequel.
Tenoch Huerta, who is expected to play Namor in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, responded in kind to the leaked photos of himself as the Sub-Mariner.
With the caption: "SpongeBob SquarePants' Mermaid Man," Huerta shared an image.
"Tenoch images have been leaked..."
Tenoch Huerta will be announced in the SDCC by Marvel?
Tenoch Huerta is apparently openly implying his participation as Namor in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever. That said, it's reasonable to assume that Marvel Studios will make an announcement sooner rather than later.
Given that Marvel Studios has already confirmed its attendance at San Diego Comic-Con this year, there's a good possibility that Huerta's official participation in the sequel will finally be revealed in Hall H. As part of the announcement, the much-awaited Black Panther 2 trailer might also be released.
Namor's long history in Marvel Comics makes it safe to assume that the Sub-Mariner's arrival will have a significant impact on the rest of the Marvel Cinematic Universe going forward. The character has significant connections to the Fantastic Four, the X-Men, and the Illuminati, and Marvel might eventually maximize his inclusion by including some iconic story threads from the comics into live-action.
On November 11, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever will premiere in cinemas.
