‘I’m not going to lie to people’: Namor Actor Tenoch Huerta Dismisses Fake Man-Bulge Photo, Says He Doesn’t Have Enough ‘Fragile Masculinity’ To Lie To Fans

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever introduced us to yet another amazing antagonist who will soon be turned into a protagonist. Tenoch Huerta’s Namor has proven to be a really strong entry into the MCU. His take on Namor wasn’t what many would have expected, but it’s needless to say that he does stand out and gives Aquaman a run for his money. But many fans were just sad when they found out that Marvel didn’t give us the full-monty with Namor! Apparently, they edited out Namor’s bulge that was clearly visible in the trailers and Huerta has a funny reaction to it.

Release The Bulge Cut!

The Bulging The Bulging Truth of Namor

The Black Panther: Wakanda Forever trailers clearly showed a zucchini bulge on Namor’s green shorts. It was natural so it seemed okay when the trailers hit the internet. But since Marvel and Disney have to maintain their family-friendly approach, they edited out Namor’s junk in the final cut. And now many fans want Marvel to release “The Bulge Cut.”

But we’ve got bad news for those demanding it because when Tenoch Huerta himself was asked about it, he claimed that among the photos mentioned above, the one you see on the right is the original. While speaking to Rolling Stone, here’s what the Narcos: Mexico star had to say:

“[Laughs] The only thing that I can say is: the original was the photo on the right. Without [the bulge]! That’s original. No, I mean, I’m not going to lie to people. Every man in the world, we have fragile masculinity, but not in that issue. I will say, the right one, the real one is the photo on the right.”

Well, we can’t really present our case with Marvel if the guy in question claims that the fake one is actually real. Everyone knows it isn’t, but it’s great to see Huerta being a sport.

Namor Needs to Stay in Shape

Tenoch Huerta had an intense workout routine for Namor in Wakanda Forever.

The bulge isn’t the only thing Huerta talked about. He also addressed his future in the MCU and how he will have to maintain his shape in case Marvel calls him in one more time. He said:

“Concerned! I actually worry about it. No, it’s a big problem, man. I can’t cut off my amount of tacos from now on. But, yeah, it’s funny. I don’t know. It’s something that my trainer told me. “Okay, man, now you can rest, you can chill and take your time. But not too much, because if you have to play Namor one more time, you need to go through the same process all over again. So it’s better you take care of yourself and don’t get crazy with tacos.”

It’s important that Huerta listens to his trainer because Marvel will definitely call him in.

It is safe to presume that Namor’s future includes at least one solo project which was set up by Wakanda Forever. He yielded to Wakanda and people like Attuma may not take too kindly to that. Attuma would probably become the antagonist in Namor’s story. But apart from that, Namor could also appear in Fantastic Four and the two upcoming Avengers projects. You’d be right to assume that he is an MCU regular from now on.

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is currently playing in theatres worldwide.
