Very nice image huh? However those in the know among the leak community are saying that right hand image seen above is legit. Insider MTTTSH has an artists rendition of what they say Tenoch Huerta will look like as Namor.

Now further to this there have been some rumors over the weekend that Namor’s original story will change slightly in the MCU. According to Brazilian website Chippu, Namor will not be from the city of Atlantis. Instead the sunken ancient city will be one from Mexican/South American culture. Most of the fan base is guessing Tlālōcān, the mythical Aztec paradise city connected to the water will be the real life myth to replace Atlantis as the home of Namor. Other than this change the site says the rest of Namor’s back story remains the same, Human father, non-Human mother.
Given how similar Namor and Aquaman’s stories are, I’m not surprised Marvel are trying to differentiate between the two for the MCU. I actually think this sounds like a far cooler idea than another Atlantis myth personally.

Now as always take all this with a pinch of salt. Do I think Tenoch Huerta is playing Namor in Black Panther 2? Absolutely. However who knows with all these other details, for now?
