Tenoch Huerta, who plays Namor, is likewise curious about what the Talokan monarch was up to during Avengers: Infinity War. The two epic Avengers films used to conclude the Infinity Saga contained events that profoundly altered the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, to the point where new ventures cannot avoid concerns about it. In this way, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is no exception. The Phase 4 film gave some answers, such as who controlled Wakanda after Thanos snapped T’Challa or why Nakia was not present for the Wakanda war. Still, it also raised new concerns regarding the universe-wide incident.
The emergence of Namor presented one of the most critical concerns in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever. The formidable new MCU villain was revealed to have existed for hundreds of years, implying that he ruled Talokan during the plot of the Infinity Saga. Nevertheless, after demonstrating the extent he would go as a king to defend his people in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, Namor not fighting Thanos in Avengers: Infinity War remained a nagging concern. According to a recent interview with The Wrap, even Tenoch Huerta has been pondering the same thing since he saw the screenplay for Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.
Namor’s Marvel Cinematic Universe Future Might Reveal His Infinity War Experience
Tenoch Huerta may not know what Namor was up to during Avengers: Infinity War, but his MCU future may reveal more. Marvel Studios has not stated when or where fans will see Namor again, and Huerta himself is unclear about what the future holds for his character. But, given his performance in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, there is every reason to believe Namor will return. More about Namor’s history can be revealed if he appears in Black Panther 3, Avengers: The Kang Dynasty or a standalone project.
This would allow Marvel Studios to revisit The Snap and reveal what Namor and the rest of Talokan went through. As a result of half their population leaving, Marvel may validate hypotheses about the undersea people becoming more inclined to explore the surface world. These hypotheses link everything from Steve Rogers spotting a whale in New York to the mention of undersea earthquakes in Avengers: Endgame.
There might be various explanations for what Namor was doing in Avengers: Infinity War and why he did not battle Thanos. Namor might be exposed as one of Thanos’ snap victims in the future. This makes the most sense, as Black Panther: Wakanda Forever depicts him as a monarch seeking answers about what happened to his people. Though Namor and Talokan may not have been aware of Thanos’ strike during Avengers: Infinity War, his disappearance might devastate the whole realm.
