Namor Arrives In Wakanda & Confronts Ramonda In New Black Panther 2 Clip

A new Black Panther: Wakanda Forever clip shows Namor arriving in Wakanda and being confronted by Ramonda. The mother of T’Challa, Angela Bassett’s Ramonda is one of many returning characters from 2018’s Black Panther, along with Shuri (Letitia Wright), Nakia (Lupita Nyong’o), Okoye (Danai Gurira), M’Baku (Winson Duke), and CIA agent Everett K. Ross (Martin Freeman). Due to his tragic death in 2020, Chadwick Boseman won’t appear in the sequel, which was reworked to address his absence and honor his legacy as T’Challa.

While Wakanda mourns King T’Challa’s death, its new leaders will have to defend the kingdom from invading forces led by Namor, played by Narcos: Mexico’s Tenoch Huerta in his MCU debut. Wakanda Forever includes another anticipated MCU debut in Dominique Thorne as Riri Williams, also known as Ironheart, who already has her own eponymous Disney+ series on the way. The genius inventor builds a powerful suit of armor similar to Tony Stark’s and is recruited by Wakanda to help stave off Namor’s invading forces. In the wake of its world premiere, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever reactions have been pouring in online praising the moving Marvel sequel.

Shortly after the world premiere, Huerta appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live to talk about the sequel and debut a new Namor clip. Via @XMen97News on Twitter, the clip shows Namor arriving in Wakanda, admiring its pristine air and water before being confronted by Ramonda and revealing his identity. Watch the new clip above.

Everything We Know About Namor In Black Panther: Wakanda Forever

In Wakanda Forever, Namor the Sub-Mariner is the King of Talokan, an ancient underwater kingdom similar to Atlantis. In the new clip, he says his people refer to him as « K’uk’ulkan, » a feathered serpent god from Aztec mythology, though his enemies call him Namor. Also alluded to in the clip, Namor takes an interest in the surface world after T’Challa reveals the truth of Wakanda to the public at the end of the first Black Panther movie. Namor, in turn, believes Talokan is threatened by the presence of Wakanda and leads his people to take measures to defend themselves.

Huerta has confirmed that his character is a mutant, just like he is in the comics, which could spell big things for Namor’s future in the MCU. Wakanda Forever will likely serve as an origin story and introduction for Namor and prime him for future appearances, as opposed to killing off the villain after just one film, as they did with Michael B. Jordan’s Killmonger in Black Panther. Audiences won’t have to wait much longer to see Namor in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, as the sequel releases in theaters on November 11.
