Tenoch Huerta as Namor in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.

With Black Panther: Wakanda Forever fast approaching, details are steadily coming out about what we can expect to see in the film—including information about Namor (Tenoch Huerta)’s new name.

Namor the Sub-Mariner is Marvel’s oldest superhero, going all the way back to Marvel Comics #1 in 1939. In the comics, Namor rules the underwater kingdom of Atlantis, but now that he’s making the jump to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, he’s been reinvented as the ruler of Talocan, a kingdom inspired by Mesoamerican culture and myth. To go along with his revamped backstory, Namor’s character has also taken on a Mesoamerican look and feel.
