Black Panther 2: edited swimwear? Namor actor comments on fan theory

Finally, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever After, direct sequence of black Panther (2018), made its theatrical debut around the world. In Brazil, the film arrived on November 10th and, since then, has become one of the most prestigious and watched titles of 2022, and not just from Marvel.


In history, we follow the unfolding of the death of King T ‘ Challa (Chadwick Boseman, actor who passed away from cancer in 2020), hero and ruler of Wakanda. Now, it’s up to Queen Ramonda (Angela Basset) and Princess Shuri (Letitia Wright) to guide and protect the nation, which must face a new villain: Namor.

And speaking of Namor, the character played by actor Tenoch Huerta, did you notice his shorts? Yeah, your shorts. According to some observant fans, Namor’s shorts (a kind of tight-fitting green swim trunks) were altered from the trailer for black panther 2 for the version seen in theaters. Especially in the groin area, which would have been “softened”.



The noise surrounding the fact even reached the ears of Huerta, who spoke about the “controversial” subject in an interview with Rolling Stone magazine.

🇧🇷[Risos] The only thing I can say is: the original photo is the one on the right. Without [a protuberância]🇧🇷 This is the original. No, I mean, I’m not going to lie to people. Every man in the world, we have fragile masculinity, but not in that sense. I’ll say, the right photo, the real one is the one on the right.”

That is, for those who were theorizing, there was no type of editing in the figure of Namor. At least, that’s what the artist assures.

About Namor, villain of Black Panther 2


In addition to edited shorts, the villain also caught the attention of fans for his nature, powers and motivations. After all, he had to follow up on the great participation of Killmonger, played by Michael B. Jordan, considered one of the best villains in the history of Marvel films.

In wakanda foreverNamor, aka the Sub-Mariner, tests Wakanda’s limits by declaring war on the “surface” as he seeks to defend the underwater kingdom of Atlantis over which he rules.

The character is also regarded as one of Marvel’s first mutants (alongside Ms. Marvel, who had her origin changed in the Disney+ series). That is, it is very possible that his participation will pave the way for the X-Men in the MCU in the future.
