According to Nate Moore, VP of Marvel Studios Production and Development, the rights to Namor are tied with Universal.
Many fans have noted how widely different the origins of the MCU version is from the source material, including the Mayan influences.
Moore goes on to say that Ryan Coogler’s ideas on changing Namor helped flesh the character more than the comics did with the Atlantean origins.
Namor the Sub-Mariner was one of the characters Marvel Entertainment had sold off the rights during the company’s low point amidst a bankruptcy.
Namor fell under Universal Studios and was being prepped for a major motion picture release after Ang Lee’s Hulk.
Marvel fans can catch Tenoch Huerta’s "boy without love" take on Namor, the Avenging Son in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever in theaters.
