The ending of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever left Wakanda and Talokan in a somewhat tense alliance after Letitia Wright's Shuri let Tenoch Huerta's Namor live for another day, but not without a reminder that he shouldn't carelessly wage war and pick a fight against a fellow Vibranium powerhouse. Ever since his successful debut, fans have wondered when they'll see the Talokan ruler next and it appears that it'll be soon rather than later.
Although Marvel technically can't feature Namor in a solo film due to ownership issues similar to the Hulk, Huerta is always welcome to play him in a starring role in another Marvel film.
In an interview with ComicBook.com, Jeff Loveness, the writer for Avengers: The Kang Dynasty, revealed that Namor will be in the fifth Avengers film. Specifically, Loveness shared this when asked who he's most looking forward to in the upcoming Avengers movie. Loveness claims that he's "excited" to write Namor, which is all the confirmation that the internet needs to go into a frenzy about seeing MCU's latest anti-hero next.
The same interview hinted that Huertas could return in another film before then, but it wouldn't surprise us if his pre-Avengers return is nothing more than a glorified cameo.
Black Panther: Wakanda Forever proved that the Talokan leader can more than hold his own in a fight. More importantly, he's amassed a Vibranium-powered army that will likely play a crucial role against the Council of Kangs.
What's interesting here is how Namor will get roped into the fight.
Black Panther 2 suggested that Namor wants nothing more than to take over the surface world, preferably with Wakanda, but his proposal to Shuri confirms that he's not above going toe-to-toe with another powerhouse. We foresee the Council of Kangs attacking Earth-616 and possibly hurting Talokan, which could force Namor to strike up a hesitant alliance with Wakanda and the rest of Earth's Mightiest Heroes.
Shuri is also aware that Namor cares about his people, so she might come to Namor to ask for assistance once she finds out about the multiversal threat.
Either way, fans would love nothing more than to see Namor back in the MCU.
The better question now would be, will Avengers: The Kang Dynasty be delayed from its release date? Marvel Studios hasn't confirmed this yet but Kevin Feige's recent update about focusing more on quality hints at a potential reshuffling of dates. After Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania got terrible reviews from critics and audiences due to the movie's subpar VFX work, Marvel might want to listen to what audiences are saying.
