In the wake of the upcoming sequel of the first Black Panther (2018), the actor playing the anti-hero Namor, Tenoch Huerta has expressed his interest in leading a solo film that would depict the story of Marvel’s first mutant. While the idea of a Namor-centered movie bears the potential to be a blockbuster, the actor isn’t certain about the possibility of it actually happening. Huerta has mentioned it depends on Kevin Feige as well as the reaction Black Panther: Wakanda Forever gets from the audience following its release.

Namor’s mutant role, inspired by the comics, in the movie also is a big prospect for MCU’s introduction to X-Men, preceded by the streaming of Ms. Marvel on Disney+.

“I would like it but I don’t know. It depends on what Kevin Feige says he wants. It depends on the inbox. It depends on the people, and how many tickets they buy. So please: buy a lot of tickets.” Huerta said in a recent interview with Digital Spy.

Even Kevin Fiege, the producer of the movie, has mentioned the prospect of a solo Namor film, the possibility of it depends on the reception of Black Panther 2. He even said to Marvel that a script was prepared for the character, but it wasn’t followed through due to the timing and the idea never being right.

What would a Namor solo movie entail?

It is no surprise that Namor, Marvel’s first mutant, has undeniable power complimenting his unique gifts. According to director Ryan Coogler, Namor possesses strength comparable to Thor and even Hulk, under particular instances. Keeping in mind, Huerta’s perception, Namor is more of an anti-hero, than an antagonist, who is protective of his nation to let it fall prey to outer world threats.

Namor’s prominent appearances in Marvel comics add to all the possibilities for the plot of a Namor solo film if it happens to be released. Even the introduction of Namor’s underwater kingdom Talokan with all its culture and glory would add to the richness of a story centered around Namor.

It happens to be a big question mark on whether we would get to see a Namor solo movie, but to compromise with our patience, we won’t have to wait till we are introduced to the character in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is getting released on Friday, November 11th.
