Brian Tee Says He Wants To Play Namor

Namor the Sub-Mariner is a character that many fans have always wanted to see in the Marvel Cinematic Universe at some point, but that wasn’t actually possible until quite recently due to the fact that the rights to him didn’t belong to Marvel Studios. However, now that he’s finally back at the studio an actor has already expressed his interest in playing him and he’s someone that would be a great fit for the role.

In a recent interview with Entertainment Tonight, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows star Brian Tee revealed that he’s a huge fan of the character and he’d love to get to play him in the future after talking about how there should be more possible roles for Asian-Americans and people of color in the film industry:

“This is what: Just saying, Marvel Studios just picked up the rights to Namor, who is the Submariner, and I would love to play the Submariner. I grew up as a comic geek and the Submariner is one of my childhood’s fondest superheroes. I feel like I can play him! If there is one role, right now, that I would love to play, it would be Namor.”

The actor has played plenty of villains in the past, so seeing as Namor is often depicted as an anti-hero, he’d definitely be a great choice to bring the character to life. What do you guys think?
