Namor, The Sub-Mariner: Who Should Play Him?
Yes, with the 2 or 3 hints in Avengers: Endgame (2019), it is plain that Disney and Marvel Studios have resolved the film rights leasing issues with Universal Studios over Namor and that Namor, The Sub-Mariner, is finally coming to the screen in a live action movie. Who would you like to see play him? If you want to see why somebody would chose him, or suggest one yourself (and please give a reason why (it will make the discussion more interesting)), go fishing here. Personally, I’m only going to start this list with one name and owning up to it. Only the suggested names will be listed here. Oh, the hints that Namor is coming? 1) Okoye saying that the seas are opening up, especially the one in the Atlantic and Pacific, 2) a mark on a map in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean right where Atlantis is, 3) an audio clue at the end of the credits which I had interpreted as the sound of the bell people put on top of anchored buoys (as well as a light beacon) to warn ships of sub-merged reefs.
