The teaser of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever was released by Marvel Studious on Saturday at San Diego Comic-Con. The teaser centered on the void and emptiness with the loss of the actor Chadwick Boseman who had mastered the role of Wakanda hero in the films. Tenoch Huerta will play Namor the Submariner and along with him joins Mabel Cadena as Namora and Dominique Thorne as Ironheart. Fans criticize the look of Namor.
Can Namor the Submariner beat Aquaman?
With the reveal of the first look at Namor, fans say “Someone give him a gym membership.”

If we look at Jason Momoa, we definitely wonder how did he build himself like that? Well for Momoa his fitness is as important as his people. As Aquaman, he has this beastly chest, and people are definitely in awe. In comparison to his body, fans do not think Namor can compete or beat Aquaman,
Here is the first look at Namor:

not sure why a Mayan-esque Namor would have a beef with Wakanda, bro is from a diff continent not like Wakandans drilling the ocean for vibranium or are they?

That does not look like how I imagined Namor would like in real life. Then again, it may have been impossible to find someone who had the look of Namor in the comics.

Guy is built like marshmallow. I always thought Namor was Chinese or something.

Namor’s origin is completely altered by MCU:
Namor is going to be the antagonist in the upcoming Black Panther: Wakanda Forever movie.
In the movie, the people are expected to go into a war with the submerged kingdom of Atlantis which will be led by Namor because he wants to save his country. It might be possible that Black Panther 2 will not feature Atlantis at all. The MCU portrayed Namor as if he is from some distant civilization.
Marvel might introduce Namor along with also introducing the Aztecs as a new civilization. As Huerta is playing the role of Namor so it might be that Namor’s people are of Mexican descent.
Marvel could relate Namor to a Mesoamerican civilization like the Mayans or Aztecs.
Black Panther: Wakanda Forever will be released on 11 November 2022.
