This Look At Henry Golding As Namor Is Breathtaking

The Marvel Cinematic Universe continues to grow moving into Phase 4 after the events of "Avengers: Endgame." We have gotten a plethora of Disney+ series along with some movies since that time, and with the multiverse now broken courtesy of events in "Loki" and "Spider-Man: No Way Home," there are infinite possibilities as to who might appear in upcoming projects. "Moon Knight" is the latest installment to the MCU, and its first episode premiered on March 30, 2022. Not too long after, we'll witness "Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness," "Thor: Love and Thunder," and "Black Panther: Wakanda Forever."

As we know, "Black Panther: Wakanda Forever" is done filming (via ComicBook.com), and the entire process was quite difficult not only due to the tragic loss of the late Chadwick Boseman but also the COVID-19 pandemic and injuries suffered by Letitia Wright, who plays Shuri. It's still unclear if Shuri will adopt the mantle of the Black Panther completely in the film, but rumors are indicating it as a possibility. More rumors also point to the plot of "Black Panther: Wakanda Forever" to feature a popular character from Marvel Comics — Namor the Sub-Mariner. As we know, Namor was one of Marvel Comics' first heroes and famously the first mutant.

For a while now, there has been speculation as to who might play the live-action Namor in "Black Panther: Wakanda Forever" if he appears, with actor Tenoch Huerta supposedly most likely the candidate (via CBR). However, recent fan art has delivered a breathtaking look at actor Henry Golding as the iconic character. Here's what we know.

The fan art featuring Henry Golding as Namor looks amazing

In a 2019 post on Instagram, popular artist bosslogic created a depiction of what actor Henry Golding might look like as Namor the Sub-Mariner. The photo shows Golding's Namor with his trademark pointed ears and shorter slicked-back hair. He is fully clad in green armor on the shoulders, wrists, and hands, along with a green-and-gold armored belt of sorts surrounding the waist. Golding's Namor also has, of course, the Trident of Neptune. The picture also features what bosslogic thought the title of the second "Black Panther" movie could possibly be, as the concept art was created before the film's name became official. Apparently, the artist thought something like "Black Panther: Two Kings" would be fitting if the story were to feature Namor. However, we now know the true name of the sequel to be "Black Panther: Wakanda Forever."

As far as Golding actually playing the character of Namor, this is still very uncertain. Given that Marvel Studios hasn't announced any particular actor in the role, it remains a possibility. Back in 2020 during a press tour, Golding revealed that Namor is one of his favorite characters in Marvel Comics and would be open to the opportunity of playing the character, although he has never officially been approached by Kevin Feige or Marvel (via MTV News). Only time will tell if Golding actually plays the Atlantean anti-hero — in the meantime, bosslogic's art will have to do.
