The movie will also include Namor as the antagonist who is the king of an Atlantis-like kingdom called “Talocan”. Namor will be the antagonist in the movie while Dora Milaje, Shuri, and other members of the royal family get dragged into a power struggle for the throne.


The movie will mark the end of Phase 4 of the MCU and will release on 11th November 2022 in theaters across the globe.
