Black Panther: Wakanda Forever BTS image shows filming of underwater Namor related scenes

A new behind-the-scenes image adds more fuel to speculations of Namor’s debut in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever. Added, the leaked image shows the filming of possibly an underwater sequence showcasing Marvel Cinematic Universe’s adaptation of the city of Atlantis.

Marvel Studios may not have an Avengers level ensemble flick for 2022 but Phase 4 is finally exploring the stories of popular franchises with sequels and threequels namely Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness and Thor: Love and Thunder. Similarly, Black Panther 2 is another anticipated sequel from director Ryan Coogler, while most of the film’s plot has been in wraps – early crumbs of information claimed actor Tenoch Huerta was reportedly cast to play Namor the Sub-Mariner.

Now, a new set image from Atlanta Filming, an account long dedicated to sharing credible behind-the-scene clips/photos from Hollywood movies – revealed filming of an underwater sequence in a water tank, claiming it was “Namor/Atlanteans scenes” for Black Panther: Wakanda Forever. Readers can check it out below.

It must be noted that the image was reshared by Black Panther: Wakanda Forever News, a fan account dedicated to the sequel. Atlanta Filming’s original tweet was deleted, however, the account has had a pattern of deleting information. In any case, Marvel Studios is yet to officially confirm the character’s introduction.

MCU chief Kevin Feige has also hinted at Namor’s arrival but the character’s debut remained questionable due to Universal Pictures holding on to the distribution rights. Though, earlier in January 2020, a rumor surfaced that the studio’s rights over The Incredible Hulk and Namor reverted to Marvel Studios.

If the rumors are true, Marvel’s version of Aquaman would face competition from DCEU’s sequel from director James Wan, Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom releasing in December. However, Black Panther 2 would arrive a month earlier in November, giving MCU the upper hand. Nonetheless, Jason Momoa’s King of Atlantis has already been established and in fact, a new teaser of sorts was recently released during the Super Bowl.

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever has popped up on social media time and again with MCU fans continuously campaigning to recast T’Challa. It remains to be seen who’d take up the mantle in Black Panther 2 set to arrive in theatres on November 11, 2022.
