Both Hulk and Namor are now firmly part of the MCU. However according to a new report Marvel still can’t make a Namor or Hulk solo movie….Yet! Marvel producer Nate Moore confirmed the Namor situation in a recent interview with The Wrap. Moore says we can definitely expect Namor to return, but for now, like Hulk, only in ensemble movies, not solo outings. This is because the movies rights are still held by Universal Studios, from the deal struck before Disney purchased Marvel. Though as Moore says, this didn’t really affect what they could do with Namor in Wakanda Forever.

“It honestly affects us more, and not to talk too much out of school, but in how we market the film than it does how we use him in the film,” Moore said. “There weren’t really things we couldn’t do from a character perspective for him, which is good because clearly, we took a ton of inspiration from the source material, but we also made some big changes to really anchor him in that world in a truth that publishing never really landed on, I would argue, in a big way.”

Marvel can only use Namor in a series of character posters or in an ensemble poster, not on his own.

As for Hulk, we all kinda knew the situation but Moore is talking like nothing has changed. There were rumors those rights had reverted back, and also rumors this would not happen till June of 2023.


On the Barside Buzz side, regular Marvel insider MTTSH says the rights fro both Namor and Hulk will be back within a couple years.

Okay, good to know. However There were reports as said above that the Hulk rights would revert back as per original deal with Universal on June, 2023, which at this point is only 6 months away. Plus there were rumors that Marvel was developing a World War Hulk movie. If Marvel is developing that movie, it must surely be for once the rights have reverted back. However developing, is different from something planned and announced, which World War Hulk has not been. There are even some thoughts among the fans that World War Hulk may have morphed into Captain America: New World Order, given it has The Leader as a villain and General/Senator/President Ross in the mix.

I’m not going to get all worked up about a solo Namor movie. However I would love to see more with Hulk, who has always been one of my favorite Marvel heroes since I was a kid. So I hope Marvel does get the rights back soon.
