Who is Namor in Black Panther 2?The Black Panther: Wakanda Forever trailer featured a variety of characters, including Shuri, Nakia, and Ramonda. However, there is one character who stands out from the rest as a newcomer to the franchise. Now you might be wondering who is namor in black panther 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 abilities. Born from unique circumstances, he is half human and half Atlantean, as you can see in the Black Panther: Wakanda Forever trailer.
Because Wakanda and Atlantis are both highly developed countries, they often compete with each other and have fought in several wars. Namor, also known as Sub-Mariner, has fought T’Challa (Black Panther) several times in the comics. For example, Black Panther attempted to take down some Atlanteans after stealing Wakanda technology, leading to a later duel between the two.
Things get worse later when Namor uses his power to summon a tidal wave strong enough to wipe out scores of people in Wakanda. But despite the character’s long combat history, they occasionally work together to defeat common enemies.
In Secret Wars, the afterlife (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 their differences aside in order to survive.
Looking at the trailer, it seems like the Marvel Cinematic Universe will revolve around this rivalry and have Namor as a potential main antagonist.
