Here’s a rather sudden surprise but it looks like a blurry first image of Namor has found its way online, who will make his premiere in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever. It’s been long rumored that Tenoch Huerta is taking on the role of the Submariner, even if we never got an official confirmation from Marvel Studios. While the design is very blurry, it does offer a first glimpse at what he might look like, and how they’ll translate it from the comics. The design also seems to match what another leaker, @MyTimeToShineHello has shared not too long ago.
While the blurred image maeks it difficult to make out details, the design does seem strongly inspired by Namor’s original costume design with the green trunks. As per usual with any MCU adaptation, they’ve added some new flourishes like gauntlets on his arms. It does also seem like he has a piece around his neck, but it’s unclear what exactly it is.
The biggest confirmation, if this image turns out to be real, is that Marvel Studios is not shying away from his iconic feet wings. The character is known as one of the first Mutants introduce din the MCU, and that mutation was in the form of him having wings on his feet. While it seems like it could just be an armor piece, we’ll have to see if we get a reveal of some kind in the near future to confirm this comic-accurate detail. For now, we can only speculate.
