Black Panther: Wakanda Forever Director Ryan Coogler confirmed that Namor Tenoch Huerta is as strong as Thor to Mark Ruffalo and Chris Hemsworth.
While loss and grief will play a role in the much awaited black panther 2The movie itself is also about learning to move forward.
The sequel will not only highlight how 2018 Black Panther He casts steps in their new roles, but the film is also set to star in a number of new characters, including Riri Williams as Ironheart and Namor the Submariner.
Played by Tenoch Huerta, Namur is a character Black Panther Director Ryan Coogler has been on my radar since the original film; And for its sequel, Namor was positioned as her primary antagonist.
From what the public knows so far, he is considered a mutant Namur, the ruler of the underwater kingdom of Talukan, who had fallen out with Wakanda.
But now, before the movie’s theatrical debut, Marvel has revealed exactly how this new character stacks up against the MCU’s most powerful heroes.
Why is Black Panther’s Namor stronger than Chris Hemsworth’s Thor
Speaking with Marvel, director Ryan Coogler gave Marvel fans a clearer picture of the sequel’s antagonist, Namor, and how his abilities compare to other MCU characters.
When discussing these comparisons, Coogler began to note that Namur, like Shuri and Queen Ramunda Another politician, another sovereign ruler:
“The introduction of Namur was for us a real opportunity to introduce another politician, another sovereign ruler to a group of people who represented more than himself.”
But in addition to his powerful target, he is also a powerful threat.
Just like the comics, the live-action Namor in the MCU is also a mutant who can move quickly through water and into the sky.
but that is not all.
According to Coogler, Namor also “strongly a bull” And the It can be as strong as the chassis:
“[There’s] Unmatched in terms of his abilities, the ability to breathe underwater, breathe at high altitudes and roam on land. He’s incredibly strong, as strong as a bull, and if he’s around enough water, he can be as strong as a hulk.”
Thor seems to have a competition for who really deserves his ‘most powerful avenger’ hat. Thor: Love and Thunder.
Another factor contributing to Namur’s threat is his motivation.
Producer Nate Moore explained that, just like Thor, Hulk, and The Avengers, the Sub-mariner is only interested in Protecting His People:
“He is not interested in ruling the world for power. He is not interested in money. He is interested in protecting his people. And what is more altruistic than that?”
Interestingly enough, this impulse is what puts him on a collision course with Wakanda where he was “100% think he’s the hero in his story”:
“This is a man who believes 100% that he is the hero in his story. He does not see himself as a villain because in Namur’s eyes he is doing what he is doing to protect people who have already made it through a tragic history.”
The hierarchy of power within the MCU has changed
Marvel Studios may have changed Namur’s hometown of Atlantis to Talocan, but his superhuman strength equal to Hulk and God of Thunder is also true in the comics.
In print, Namor defeated the She-Hulk, the Red Hulk, and the Savage Hulk, while also going toe-to-toe with Hercules and Mighty Thor.
Given that the past few months of MCU content have focused on Hulks and Thors, Namor’s introduction is an interesting timing.
If Namur survived black panther 2However, the future fight between the three – or banded together against a common enemy – will truly be a sight to behold.
It also looks as if Marvel Studios keeps Namur’s comic book counting on the waves for how strong he is, as Coogler notes he’s just as strong as the Hulk “If there is enough water around it.”
Of course, this means that poor Thor might run into the third strongest if the Hulk manages to defeat Namur and that Namur is stronger than Thor.
However, while Namor’s strength isn’t good news for Wakanda, it’s great for her Wakanda forever and receive it.
As the old saying goes, “A story is as good as its bad.” And if this is true, then adding Namor to Black Panther Franchising not only means that it will survive but potentially thrive.
Black Panther: Wakanda Forever It arrives in theaters November 11th.
