Has the Black Panther: Wakanda Forever Atlantis plot rumor just been confirmed by Collider? The outlet, who I would say are essentially a trade these days, recently published an article on all they know about Black Panther: Wakanda Forever. Now Collider did not come out and say they had plot summary or anything. Most of the information covered is all the official things we know, like who is returning and who is new cast additions etc. However they also did cover the rumored Atlantis plot. Though they do say it is, ‘merely speculation’, it seems slightly odd to me. Collider are not the type of outlet who cover rumors, so do they know more than they are letting on here?
My guess is that this is a subtle clue that the writer also believes the Black Panther: Wakanda Forever Atlantis plot rumors. For me personally, given the nature of where the rumors came from, I was always confident. It seems highly likely that Tenoch Huerta is playing Namor the Submariner. Maybe this will get confirmed at a later date, whether through shooting or post-production. However so far all the evidence I’ve seen says this Atlantis plot rumor is legit. Nothing has made me think twice about it so far at least. This latest news is just another piece in the puzzle for me, as you better believe Collider has sources at Marvel Studios.
When it comes to how and why Atlantis show up, and end up in a conflict with Wakanda? No idea, and frankly that really would be story spoilers. With shooting on Wakanda Forever currently taking place now, it seems unlikely we’ll get any story details that precise. Then again, would we want them at this point? I don’t mind a few details going in to a film or show. I have to check all the spoilers for the site. However, I don’t love it. Marvel usually does a great job of keeping the most important story details under wraps which is a good thing.
Has the Black Panther: Wakanda Forever Atlantis plot rumor just been confirmed by Collider? No, I wouldn’t go that for, but it is more evidence to me and I’d be shocked if Atlantis does not appear in Wakanda Forever at this point. Sound off below.
