Luke Evans becomes Namor the Sub-Mariner for Chadwick Boseman’s Black Panther 2 in a new piece of fan art that imagines the Beauty and the Beast star as the iconic Marvel character.
While Marvel Studios revealed their slate for Phase 4 at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con, Chadwick Boseman’s Black Panther 2 was left off it. However, Feige did confirm that Black Panther 2 is coming and will most likely land in Phase 5. While fans of Chadwick Boseman’s Black Panther may have to wait a while, there have been rumors that the film’s villain could be Namor the Sub-Mariner.
Fans have been awaiting Namor’s Marvel Cinematic Universe debut for years now, but rights issues have made that difficult. Namor could appear in Black Panther 2, and Luke Evans could look great in the role, as seen in this cool artwork. Luke Evans is no stranger to franchises, having appeared in the Fast and Furious series, but he has yet to book a comic book movie role. Digital artist Mizuri recently revealed artwork that shows how great Luke Evans could look like as Namor. You can see Luke Evans as Namor for the MCU below.
