MCU Theory Completely Changes Namor’s Origin In Phase 4

The MCU began laying the groundwork for Namor’s introduction years ago. A nod to the character was seemingly included in Iron Man 2. In one scene, a map revealed markers for various locations that SHIELD was keeping an eye on at the end. Many were obvious Easter eggs to major locales that would be important later, such as Captain America’s resting place, the spot where Thor’s hammer was found, and Wakanda. One particular marker was right in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean, which was taken as a hint to Atlantis since there wasn’t much else in the ocean that could have attracted SHIELD’s attention.

A much more obvious reference to Namor and Atlantis was made in Avengers: Endgame. During the movie, it was noted that underwater earthquakes were occurring off the coast of Africa. When Black Widow asked about Wakanda’s response to the situation, Okoye explained, “we handle it by not handling it.” On the surface, the brief exchange about the earthquakes felt rather pointless – unless, of course, they were about Namor’s secret kingdom. Since Namor was already the top candidate to be Black Panther’s next opponent, the line was assumed to be an Atlantis Easter egg. Since then, Endgame co-writer Stephen McFeely confirmed that the purpose of the line was to “plant seeds” for Namor.

MCU Theory Suggests Namor’s Atlantis Will Be Aztec

Now, it’s been theorized that while Marvel is introducing Namor, it’ll be swapping Atlantis for the Aztecs. Much of what drives this theory stems from the casting rumors tied to the character. Reportedly, Namor will be brought to life by Tenoch Huerta. A Mexican actor would be an interesting choice, given that Namor is typically depicted as white or Asian in Marvel Comics. This decision may not mean anything at all in terms of the story, but it’s been suggested that Huerta’s casting points toward Namor’s people having Mexican lineage. That may not work with Atlantis when considering where his homeland would have to be located in the ocean, but it could if Marvel were to tie him to an ancient Mesoamerican civilization, such as the Mayans or the Aztecs.

It’s possible that in the MCU, Namor’s people will be reimagined as the gods once worshipped by the ancient Aztecs. It could be that these gods lived in a city deep underwater that has somehow gone undiscovered by modern humans. During ancient times, they could have made trips to the surface which resulted in the myths pertaining to Quetzalcoatl, Huitzilopochtli, Tlaloc, and more. If that’s the case, Marvel can transform the Atlanteans from Marvel Comics into an all-new MCU society inspired by ancient Aztec culture.

Not only would this take differ greatly from how Atlantis is portrayed in Marvel Comics, but it would also allow Marvel to differentiate Namor and his people from Aquaman and Atlantis in the DCEU. Even though Namor is radically different from Jason Momoa’s Arthur Curry regarding their personalities and backstories, avoiding comparisons will still be incredibly difficult. After all, both are super-powered, half-human kings who hail from underwater cities called Atlantis. One way Marvel may be able to make the MCU’s Namor unique to Aquaman is by foregoing his Atlantis connections and creating a new civilization in its place.

Evidence Black Panther 2 Is Changing Atlantis

Evidence from the Black Panther 2 set supports the Namor-Aztec theory. A hat worn by the cast and crew features a design that matches imagery associated with Tepeyollotli, a jaguar god from Aztec mythology. The movie, including Aztec gods and the Atlanteans as separate groups, feels unlikely at best, which does strengthen the possibility that if Namor really is in the movie, Marvel may indeed be making some significant adjustments to his origin story for the MCU. Further reinforcing these theories is an image that is allegedly leaked Namor concept art [via The Direct]. The image keeps Namor the Sub-Mariner’s trademark ankle wings and green trunks but adds a twist on his comic look with Aztec-inspired jewelry and other adornments. For now, though, the legitimacy of the artwork is unclear.

Based on this evidence and the motivations it could have for distancing Namor from Aquaman, the theory that he’s an Aztec god in the MCU doesn’t seem so far-fetched. Plus, it’s worth noting that Phase 4 is already making this change plausible with Moon Knight and Thor: Love and Thunder. Revealing that the Egyptian and Greek gods are real entities in the MCU makes it all the more feasible that other mythological deities, such as the Aztec gods, exist as MCU characters as well. If so, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever has the opportunity to combine ancient Aztec mythology with an existing Marvel Comics city to adapt an iconic superhero and unveil a new, unique MCU civilization at the same time.
