“Only the most broken people make great leaders,” Namor (Tenoch Huerta) in chant Ryan Coogler’s highly anticipated sequel delivers a message of grief as central character mourns death of King T’Challa, mirrors audience’s appreciation for Chadwick Boseman Continued grief over the passing, the latest trailer focuses more on the film’s narrative. It even hinted at the inclusion of a key yet-to-be-announced Marvel villain.

While there is still a somber tone I suspect will permeate the film as a means of allowing collective grief for Boseman, this trailer confirms T’Challa’s death won’t make the world any smaller. Instead,

Namor isn’t your typical comic book movie villain, and the new footage in the trailer goes to great lengths to prove it, offering Namor’s Mayan culture, kingship, and place among his people A glimpse, which apparently makes him T’Challa, driven like a human being by a duty to his people and his God. Namor was an unparalleled king after T’Challa left, which made his introduction even more interesting. Of course, it’s natural to lament that we won’t see T’Challa and Namor fighting side by side in this film, and the addition of Namor illustrates Coogler’s interest in studying the throne as a people rather than a person.

The movie poster also seems to highlight this, black The leopard looms over Shuri (Letitia Wright), Nakia (Lupita Nyong’o), Ramonda (Angela Bassett), and M’Baku figuratively, and perhaps literally, despite the teaser’s obvious female presence. Black Panther show, they are all rulers of Wakanda, maybe Black Panther too. Likewise, Namor, who wears the Kukulkan tiara, is supported by Namora (Mable Cadena) and Atuma (Alex Livinari), suggesting Namor as the dominant Any action made by the man was not made by him alone. If the comics are any indication, Mora and Atuma could be the symbolic angels and demons on his shoulders.

Although Namor is one of Marvel’s earliest characters, he first appeared in Wei Comics No. 1 (1998), and has always been a villain, hero and anti-hero, his relationship to Wakanda and Black Panther is relative Newer relationship, in 1235232287 Christopher Priest’s Run Black Panther from1296 arrive681. Since then, other writers, such as Brian Michael Bendis, Jonathan Hickman, and Jason Aaron, have fueled the enmity between the two kings and their kingdoms, with Namor in flooded much of Wakanda. The Avengers fought against the X-Men

Elements of this conflict, including the floods that engulfed Wakanda, were evident in the most recent trailer. Despite the threat of war and M’Baku’s (Winston Duke) warning that killing Namor is like killing the god of his people, Huerta makes it clear that Namor is not

villain Forever Wakanda . The conflict appears to be driven by the question of what a country would become without a king. Are they better, or worse? This question pushes Wakanda Forever The narrative goes beyond mere superheroes and into the realm of great fantasy and sci-fi epics like The Lord of the Rings and Dunes ,

T’Challa and Namor straddle the lines of kings and superheroes, kings and antiheroes, respectively. But there is also a third point of comparison. In the same

It seems that Coogler is giving us a chance to mourn the notion of Boseman, T’Challa and the aristocratic monarchy, pitting Wakanda against Torokan, and exposing our sympathy for a the importance of the state and its rulers. By deconstructing the image and invincibility of the monarchy, Coogler arguably paves the way for reconstructing the myths about the nature of these characters’ ability to inspire and explore greater truths about the things we hold dear.
