Marvel Studios closed its San Diego Comic-Con panel in style on Saturday with the debut of the first teaser for Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.

The trailer also featured our first official look at Tenoch Huerta’s Namor, prompting many fans to question if he will be the villain of the sequel. 

Directed by Ryan Coogler and starring  Letitia Wright, Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira, Winston Duke, Florence Kasumba, and more, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever shows a union in the kingdom of Wakanda against the Atlanteans after King T’Challa’s death.

Is Namor a villain in Black Panther 2?

Yes, Namor is being introduced as the villain in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever. However, that doesn’t mean he will stay one.

Going by the first trailer we saw, Namor will declare war against Wakanda. It appears he will unleash the full force of the Atlantans to battle the Dora Milaje.

Being one of Marvel Comics’ oldest characters, Namor has threatened and assisted many characters we have come to know and love during his existence. Still, at least for his introduction in the MCU, he will play the part of the villain.

Namor’s powers

Namor is the King of Atlantis and goes by the Sub-Mariner, who has previously contested T’Challa in the comics.

Born with exceptional powers, Namor can speak to the many creatures within the ocean and control them and has the ability to breathe underwater and heal himself.

Equipped with super strength, Namor can also manipulate the sea at will, which is what he did in the comics whilst conquering Wakanda by using his Phoenix Force to cause a tsunami.

Marvel fans react to Namor

The Marvel fandom is nothing but excited to see the debut of Namor in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. 

It was previously rumored that he would first appear in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness as a member of the Illuminati, but instead, his debut will remain in Black Panther 2.

Many fans can’t wait to see Namor in action and watch the MCU expand the comic character roster even further:
