Marvel have recently re-acquired the movie rights to Namor, the Sub-Mariner, and Brian Tee has already announced that he’d love to play the role. How exactly Namor might fit in the current MCU remains to be seen, since there are no mutants. Namor is a mutant, one of the strongest on the planet, and he happens to be the ruler of Atlantis. Will they make him inhuman instead? How and why would he get involved in the activities of the Avengers? Maybe the ruler of the oceans will feel the need to ask Steve Rogers to quit plunging into his realm!
Brian Tee, who plays Shredder in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows, told Entertainment Tonight that he’s a big fan of the character and would love to bring Namor to life.
“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.”
I think he’d do a great job, but what do you guys think? Let us know in the comments below.
