Black Panther: Wakanda Forever Star Doesn't Know When Namora Will Return to the MCU (Exclusive)
By Nicole Drum,2023-02-04
Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is now streaming on Disney+ and is also available on Digital -- not to mention coming to Blu-ray and DVD on February 7th -- and fans are getting a fresh opportunity to experience the film in the comfort of their own home. That includes getting reacquainted with the newest aspect of the Marvel universe to be introduced to the MCU, Namor and his nation of Talokan, including Namora. Played by Mabel Cadena in the film, the fan favorite character made a big splash with fans who are already clamoring to see Namora, as well as the rest of Talokan, in future projects. But speaking with ComicBook.com in support of the film's home release, Cadena says she doesn't know when we'll see Namora again, but she really wants to return.
"I want to be part of another project as Namora for sure, but I don't know anything because that's part, to be part of this world, the Marvel world," Cadena said. "I don't know anything. I don't know if we can have a future in other stories as Namor and Namora, but I hope because I really want to continue to play Namora. I really want to explore more things about our world. I'm very happy. I'm very proud to be this woman in a superhero body. So, I hope."
Kevin Feige Teases Future Namor Plans
While nothing official has been announced about plans for future involvement of Namor or any of the Talokanil in the MCU, Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige has previously acknowledged that there is more that they can tap into -- and that he expects fans will indeed want more.
"You know, people who read the comics know that there's 80 years of stories with Namor that we can tap into," Feige began. "So, where and when, we'll keep to ourselves for now. But we think that this is an incredibly iconic character that's being introduced. Probably, to most people, most movie-goers for the first time. And we expect them to want to see more."
