Black Panther sequel has faced numerous delays in the past months, a new set photo has fans buzzing about the film

The photo has sparked greater theories regarding the anti-hero Namor and the well-known continent Atlantis

Although nothing is confirmed, rumor has it that the ruler of Atlantis: Namor (also known as the Sub-Mariner) will be making an appearance in the highly-anticipated sequel

Since Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is set to delve deeper into the history and culture of Wakanda, the introduction to Atlantis in the MCU isn’t too far-fetched

Both Wakanda and Atlantis have advanced technology and have concealed themselves from most of the world. 

In addition, the Eternals may have paved the road for Atlantis to make an appearance soon. In the comics, Atlantis sunk due to the destruction caused by the Celestials’ second host

Whether we will see Namor and Atlantis in Black Panther’s sequel remains as speculation, but Marvel has announced that the movie will feature returning characters Shuri (Letitia Wright), Nakia (Lupita Nyong’o), and Okoye (Danai Gurira)

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is slated for a November 2022 release, so it may be a while before any news regarding Namor’s appearance is confirmed
