‘Attuma’s very different than the one in the comic books’: Black Panther: Wakanda Forever Star Alex Livinalli Confirms Marvel Has Drastically Changed the Iconic Villain in the Movie

Attuma's very different than the one in the comic books

In Ryan Coogler’s upcoming movie Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, King T’Challa’s death leaves the country in shock. In the midst of their mourning and celebration of T’Challa’s life, a new power emerges from the water.

The war between Wakanda and the Talocan country, headed by Namor the Sub-Mariner, may result from their quest for justice and answers for their people. The Marvel Universe gains several new members thanks to this war, including Alex Livinalli’s Attuma and Mabel Cadena’s Namora, who had a pre-release interview with Collider’s host, Steve Weintraub.

In their discussion, Cadena discussed the preparation that came into getting the Talocan tribe from the written word to the screen, including learning how to speak Mayan, and Livinalli described a scene in which he as well his as co-star discussed expectations against reality.

The Individual Question for Alex Livinalli

After congratulating both the stars for a fantastic movie, the host carried on to ask the Black Panther: Wakanda Forever star an individual question. The host was curious to know whether Livinalli was pulled aside by the director and told about the plans for his character after he signed the movie, or was everything vague and had a ‘go with the flow’ character attached.

The question was pretty amusing and left the stars laughing as well as they looked back at their journey with Marvel studios.


Is the Comic Character and Movie Character Different?

To the question asked, Alex Livinalli laughingly added how Marvel never tells the stars anything about the characters in the upcoming movie.

Interestingly, the Icebox hero confirmed that the Attuma everyone has read about and picturized in the comic books is pretty different from the one in the movie. However, Marvel will never disappoint its fans, leading to a number of similarities between the two.

“Marvel doesn’t tell you anything. Nothing. They don’t tell you anything. Yes, this Attuma is very different than the one that everyone has seen in the comic books, but there’s also similarities to it. As far as what’s going to happen, only Kevin [Feige] knows.”

Inner details about the character were not mentioned in detail by the guests during the interview, but then again, what is going to happen in the movie is something only Kevin Feige is aware of.
