The Black Panther: Wakanda Forever trailer showcased a variety of characters, including Shuri, Nakia, and Ramonda. However, there is one character who stood out from the rest as a newcomer to the franchise. So, now you may be wondering, who is Namor in Black Panter 2 and what is his role in the film?
Who is Namor in Black Panther 2?
Based on the comics, Namor is the ruler of Atlantis with many powers, such as superhuman strength and underwater capabilities. Being born from unique circumstances, he is half-human and half-Atlantean, which you can see a glimpse of in the trailer for Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.
Since Wakanda and Atlantis are both highly advanced countries, they often compete against each other and have fought in multiple wars. Namor, also known as Sub-Mariner, has battled against T’Challa (Black Panther) several times in the comics. For example, Black Panther tried to take down some Atlanteans after they stole Wakanda technology, resulting in a later duel between the two.
Furher down the line, things get worse when Namor uses his power to conjure a tidal wave strong enough to wipe out numerous people in Wakanda. But, even with the character’s long history of battles, they occasionally work together to take down common enemies.
In Secret Wars, the Beyonder (a cosmic being) gathers the world’s mightiest heroes on a planet called “Battelworld,” where they must fight to the death for his amusement. During the event, Black Panther and Namor must put aside their differences in order to survive.
By looking at the trailer, it seems that the Marvel Cinematic Universe will be about this rivalry and having Namor as the possible main antagonist.
So, there you have it, this is who Namor is in Black Panther 2. Those who would like to see more Marvel content, can check out the relevant links below and view any of our guides about the release dates of Fantastic Four, Avengers: The Kang Dynasty, and Spider-Man: Freshman Year.
