Black Panther: Wakanda Forever underwater filming is taking place. Does this hint at those Atlantis rumors being true? Now, underwater shoots happen on a ton of movies, but we don’t see them very often on Marvel movies. I especially would not expect to see many underwater scenes in a Black Panther movie set solely in Wakanda. After all Wakanda is in the middle of Africa, and therefore completely land locked.
Check out the evidence of Wakanda Forever underwater filming below.

This kind of tank is exactly what we would expect to see. Therefore there is at least one underwater scene in the movie. Though, if Atlantis really is a major plot point then I expect the tank will be around for a while.
As you can see from the related link above, a conflict is rumored to be brewing between the nations of Wakanda and Atlantis. As per The Illuminerdi‘s report, Namor is also rumored to be played by Tenoch Huerta (Narcos) in the movie.
There are also some hints coming from set photos that there may be a funeral scene or memorial to T’Challa shown in the movie. With the sad passing of Chadwick Boseman, one of the horrible things Wakanda Forever has to to is replace the actor with a new Black Panther. How they pull this off, we simply don’t yet know? Sadly, having T’Challa be killed off screen, seems like the only possible way to carry on without Boseman. Marvel Studios has already confirmed that the role of T’Challa will not be recast.
The set video is no longer available that showed the set people are convinced is for T’Challa. Though you can see some of the online chat about it beginning below.
