“We very much expect them to want to see more”: Kevin Feige Addresses Namor’s Mutant Status, Promises Exciting Future After Black Panther

Kevin-Feige Namors

Kevin Feige has very carefully crafted what the Marvel Cinematic Universe has constructed to now. Phase 4 introduced an entire roster full of new characters and that included Black Panther: Wakanda Forever’s Namor. Played by Tenoch Huerta, the character received a lot of praise and marked the inclusion of mutants in the franchise. The character made an epic debut and was extremely loved by the fans.

It was only fair for them to ask when would be the next time the audience would get to encounter the character. While there have been no concrete updates regarding his return, Feige has confirmed that Huerta will be reprising his role as Namor in future MCU projects. Both the future of the Submariner and mutants is looking bright in the franchise.

Kevin Feige Hints Namor’s Return In The MCU

Kevin Feige and further the producer of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, has stated that Namor is set to return in future projects of the MCU. However, it is still unsure when that would happen. The first mutant and his Talokanian people have always been established to reprise their part in the franchise. Their story is still left by a lot, so it would not be a surprise to see Tenoch Huerta once again becoming the character.

“You know, people who read the comics know there are 80 years of stories with Namor that we can tap into. So where and when, we’ll keep to ourselves for now, but we think that this is an incredibly iconic character that’s been introduced, probably to most people, most moviegoers, for the first time. And we very much expect them to want to see more.”

Feige pointed out the massive amount of character growth and stories present in the comics themselves, going back eight decades. So to pick any part from those and continue his story would always excite the fans even more.

Namor Could Get His Stand-Alone Movie

The response that Namor received has left no doubt in the MCU that the character needs to get more screen time. When fans asked Feige directly about Tenoch Huerta getting his movie, he replied rather nonchalantly about it being a possibility.

It was never a question for Ryan Coogler, Nate Moore, and Kevin Feige to include Namor in the sequel because of their love for the character and his dynamics with Black Panther. Now that the two characters have an alliance in the works, there could be various aspects of the franchise where Namor could be included and given a chance to shine even further.
