Namor Cosplayer brings Marvel’s Sub-Mariner to life

A series of photos shared by a Namor the Sub-Mariner cosplayer took the Marvel character out of the comics and into the water.

Known as Namor Cosplay (@namorcosplay) on social media, the creator shared four photos of his Namor the Sub-Mariner cosplay on Twitter. Taken by photographer Dale Altman, each photo features the cosplayer in the water, including some action shots showing them swimming in cosplay, all of which were confirmed to be real.

Created by Bill Everett, Namor, or the Sub-Mariner, first appeared in Marvel Comics #1 in 1939 as the King of Atlantis and a mutant. In February 2022, photos from the set of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever fueled further speculation that Namor the Sub-Mariner would appear in the upcoming Marvel Cinematic Universe sequel. The behind-the-scenes photo showed a camera crew in a large pool of water, apparently to film scenes featuring Namor and the lost city of Atlantis, which are rumored to play a prominent role in the film.

Recent reports indicated that Namor would make his Marvel Cinematic Universe debut in wakanda forever as the main antagonist of the film, although this has not been officially confirmed. In the comics, the kingdom of Namor is frequently at war with Wakanda, something that is shown in a synopsis published for wakanda forever, which it emphasized Wakanda’s abundance of vibranium, something “Namor’s human father was sent to seek…in Antarctica.” The “intertwined history” between Wakanda and the lost city of Atlantis is also highlighted, as both are civilizations that separated from the outside world to protect their respective ways of life.

Speculation surrounding Namor’s appearance in wakanda forever began to circulate in June 2021, after a new rumor suggested that Tenoch Huerta (Narcos: Mexico, Spectrum) had been cast as the character. The rumor also said that the film would include Namor’s fellow Atlanteans, Namora and Attuma.

Namor’s introduction into the MCU was teased in 2019 avengers endgame at the mention of “submarine earthquakes”, something End of the game writer Christopher Markus would address later in 2020. “Sometimes, you plant seeds. Sometimes, they grow,” he said. However, when theories began to circulate that these undersea earthquakes could target Namor, Markus said, “I wish we were that smart.”
