Was Namor’s Bulge Edited in Wakanda Forever? Tenoch Huerta Responds

A viral tweet made it all the way to the Black Panther star!


Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is the #1 movie in the world but actor Tenoch Huerta wants to clear something up.

You might've noticed him swimming/flying "around in his underwear" practically the entire movie as the newly introduced anti-hero Namor. While audiences fell in love with his story and ominous presence, some fans are more focused on his, erm, privates.

An alleged screenshot from the film's teaser trailer was placed side by side with a still from Wakanda Forever which shows the... discrepancies in the size of Namor's bulge. The now-viral tweet of the two images side by side reads, "GIVE NAMOR HIS PENIS BACK". At the time of this article's publication, it has over 127,000 likes.

While it began as an unconfirmed internet joke that spread far and wide across social media, it reached Huerta and he spilled the tea on the validity of the images.

When Rolling Stone showed him the tweet, Huerta laughed, "The only thing that I can say is: the original was the photo on the right," clarifying, "Without [the bulge]! That’s original. No, I mean, I’m not going to lie to people. Every man in the world, we have fragile masculinity, but not in that issue. I will say, the right one, the real one is the photo on the right."

Someone is lying! And since Huerta wouldn't have a reason to lie, it looks like someone photoshopped the image in the tweet and spread it around as if it were true.

With or without the bulge, Huerta is a beautiful man and we're so glad he's set to grace our big screens once again. In the meantime, the internet is still set on having its fun.

What does Namor have to do with Black Panther?

The anti-hero appears in the latest Marvel film, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever. Before this, the two had a long-withstanding rivalry in the Marvel comics that translated beautifully on screen.

Are Namor and Black Panther enemies?

​Both nations harbor vibranium and will do anything to keep their resources and people safe, which sometimes places them at odds with each other. They bounce back and forth between enemies and allies in the comics, which will presumably continue in future movies.

Is that Namor in Wakanda Forever?
