Black Panther 2’s Talokan Origins And Inspiration

Talokan is based on the mythical Aztec kingdom Tlālōcān where Tenoch Huerta’s Namor resides and rules. The Marvel team decided to change Namor’s kingdom from Atlantis to Talokan, and it is said that those who died from lightning or drowning come to rest here. The place is also inspired by the Aztec culture.

Like Atlantis, Talokan is a highly advanced empire brimming with so much cultural abundance and deeply connected with Aztec mythology. While Atlantis has been depicted numerous times in other movies, such as Atlantis: The Lost Empire and Journey to the Center of the Earth, Talokan is a fresh new concept that allowed Marvel to put their own creative spin.

Of course, people will always have something to compare things with. Some fans trolled Black Panther 2’s Talokan with comments such as “unfinished CGI” due to its dimly lit atmosphere. As a retort, Marvel fans answered in the most fashionable way, backed with facts and science. Check out these tweets:

Atlantis, indeed, looks too colorful and flashy for an underwater location. Whatever Aquaman’s CGI editors intended to do with this style must have a specific explanation. In the end, fans just want to enjoy a really good movie paired with realistic visual effects that will not compromise the story.

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is now showing in theaters worldwide.
