Namor is not a villain in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever

Marvel has always painted the ruler of Atlantis, Namor, in an anti-hero light, and it appears that this will remain true for the MCU.

According to Namor's actor, Tenoch Huertas, Namor will not be a villain in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.

This should mirror the role of Black Panther in Captain America: Civil War, where the ruler of Wakanda initially had a clash with some of the Avengers.

The latest trailer for the sequel to 2018's Black Panther also hints at a much larger villain as opposed to just Namor. 

The common theory is that the king of Atlantis and the ruler of Wakanda will team up in the middle of the movie against a common foe. 

If the rumors are true, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever will see a new Doctor Doom make his debut in the MCU.
