Tenoch Huerta is set to play an important role in Black Panther 2, as he takes on the role of Namor. More importantly, he is the Namor that has been altered from the comic-accurate version that showcases the Sub-Mariner as being of Aztec or Mayan culture. Huerta recently commented on this, and how his character is going to be going through what minorities currently go through in real life.

According to Huerta, “You will see them in a light of … confrontation. We don’t get along. But, it’s funny, in the end, they have too much in common. It portrays what is happening here in the States, from my perspective, between the minorities of this country. I think at some point we need to join together and create that different thing.”

Tenoch Huerta is discussing the issues that the Wakandans and the Atlanteans have with one another at the beginning of Black Panther 2, though they find themselves at the same level of understanding at some point. That confrontation is plastered throughout the trailers, though we are not sure why Wakanda and Atlantis are fighting to begin with.

Black Panther 2 is set to bring in a new Black Panther, as Chadwick Boseman has passed away, and the Marvel world is mourning the loss of T’Challa. Namor has always been a big fixture in the comics, and we are more than happy that he is going to be included in the MCU. We are also excited that Marvel has decided to change the character in this fashion, and Tenoch looks fantastic in the role.

It is also not a shock that Black Panther 2 is going to be involving real-world issues within the plot of the film, as the first movie also did the same. Behind it all, there needs to be a deeper level of love, empathy, and understanding of other cultures. Ryan Coogler accomplished this feat well and had everyone screaming, “Wakanda Forever.”

Tenoch Huerta seems to see the same level of the real-world issues being showcased in Black Panther 2, and how the immigrant issue within the United States is always bound in confrontation as well. Hopefully, this new sequel film can bring even more love to additional cultures when the movie drops in November. Coogler certainly knows how to showcase love and empathy, and we cannot wait to see him do it once again with this highly anticipated sequel.

Black Panther 2 may be carrying on without Chadwick Boseman, but the film is bringing back Winston Duke, Angela Bassett, Martin Freeman, Lupita Nyong’o, Letitia Wright, and Danai Gurira. New additions to the cast are Tenoch Huerta, Dominique Thorn, and UFC star Kamaru Usman, just to name a few. We can’t wait to see what other surprises are going to be part of this new sequel film.

Black Panther 2 officially releases on November 11, 2022. The film looks quite captivating, and we hope what Tenoch Huerta says about real-life issues in the film is brought in with grace. Ryan Coogler is certainly a visionary when it comes to filmmaking, and we know that is going to be giving the world another beautiful film that honors the memory of Chadwick Boseman and brings us back together once again.
