Newly-surfaced designs from Black Panther: Wakanda Forever show off early explorations for Namor.

While Black Panther: Wakanda Forever continues its reign at the box office, Anthony Francisco has shared some of his conceptual artwork for the Marvel movie, showcasing a slew of alternate designs for Tenoch Huerta’s Namor. The designs depict Namor with a clean-shaven look and various outfits and tattoos, which didn’t make the final cut of the movie. Check them out below.

While Namor is already a fan-favorite following his role in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, Marvel Studios producer Nate Moore recently revealed that the character can’t get his own movie due to rights issues with Universal Pictures. However, Namor can take on a supporting role in Marvel Cinematic Universe movies, as seen with Wakanda Forever.

Wakanda Forever was directed by Ryan Coogler from a screenplay he co-wrote alongside Joe Robert Cole. The film also stars Letitia Wright, Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira, Winston Duke, Florence Kasumba, Dominique Thorne, Michaela Coel, Martin Freeman and Angela Bassett.

What did HH think of the Black Panther sequel?

In Heroic Hollywood’s review of the movie Ryden Scarnato wrote “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever picks up after the events of Avengers: Endgame, with T’Challa’s death becoming permanent due to Boseman’s real-life passing and the story now following the world of Wakanda dealing with that grief. While the film is an ensemble, it ultimately rests on the shoulders of Letitia Wright’s Shuri and Angela Bassett’s Queen Ramonda.”

“When it comes to performances, everyone here is at the top of their game, and you can’t help but think that’s because of how intertwined the film is with real life. With Wright and Bassett serving as focal points, the two are the strongest of the bunch, with incredibly personal moments that are some of the most heartfelt we’ve ever seen in the MCU. Shuri’s larger role in the film, in particular, also works for those who might have reservations.”
