Black Panther: Wakanda Forever will add a new mutant to the MCU

In the closing moments of Ms. Marvel’s Season finale on Disney Plus, Marvel Studios changed the course of the MCU forever. With a single line of dialogue, Marvel announced that Kamala Khan is indeed a mutant. It will likely be a few more years before the X-Men debut in the MCU, but in the meantime, expect more mutants to appear. In fact, a mutant will apparently make its debut in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.

A new mutant joins the MCU Wakanda forever

Tenoch Huerta who plays Namor Wakanda foreversaid Rich in a recent interview that his character will be a mutant in the MCU. Namor McKenzie, also known as Sub-Mariner, is the son of a human father and an Atlantean woman in the comics. He is often referred to as “Marvel’s first mutant” as he existed long before the X-Men debuted.

Assuming Huerta is not mistaken about his character’s identity, Namor should be the second mutant to exist in the MCU’s primary reality, and join Ms. Marvel. We saw Patrick Stewart reprise his role as Charles Xavier in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madnessbut he was from earth-838 and (spoiler) did not survive Wanda’s attack.

Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver are mutants in Marvel Comics but not in the movies. Therefore, if we count Namor, there are only two living mutants in the MCU.

Wakanda Forever director Ryan Coogler also expressed to Empire how excited he is to take Namor off the role and bring him to the big screen:

The contrast between T’Challa and Namor – their characters and their nations – just jumps out of the page. He’s a dream antagonist.

According to Kevin Feige, Coogler almost introduced Namor in the first Black Panther:

Ryan ended up pitching for a tag Black Panther. The camera would shoot through the palace in Wakanda and then we would see wet footprints leading to the throne.

Coogler may not have gotten his post-credits scene, but he will have a chance to introduce one of Marvel’s oldest characters to the MCU. Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is slated to hit theaters on November 11, 2022, concluding Phase 4.

Jennifer Lopez ‘felt she would die’ amid Ben Affleck split before reunion

Jennifer Lopez has been reflecting on their ‘painful’ split Ben Afflecktwo decades before they rekindled their romance.

The lovebirds, nicknamed Bennifer, started dating in the early ’00s and soon got engaged – but called off their wedding just before they were due to tie the knot.

They reunited last year and basically picked up where they left off before saying yes in a low-key Las Vegas ceremony earlier this summer.

Last week J Lo sent us all into a spin as she confirmed her return to the charts with a new albumThis Is Me…Now – a 2002 sequel to This Is Me…Then that focused on her love for the Batman actor.

In a new interview, she spoke about going back into the studio to work on such personal music once more.

“This album ‘This Is Me… Then’ really captured a time when I was falling in love with the love of my life. And I just have everything on the record,” she said in a new interview with Zane Lowe on Apple Music 1, over deadline. “Every single song we wrote, I write dear Ben, it was such a special moment that I captured.”

However, after they initially ended their relationship, she stated that she couldn’t bring herself to play those tracks about their time together.

“I wouldn’t even perform these records. It was so painful after we broke up,” she continued. “When we called off that wedding 20 years ago it was the biggest heartbreak of my life and honestly I felt like I was dying.

“So I haven’t been making music like I did in 2002 until now… It sent me into a spiral for the next 18 years where I just couldn’t get it right. But now, 20 years later, it has a happy ending. It’s coming to an end, most of what would never happen in Hollywood.”

Through This Is Me…Now, Jen revealed her hopes that she can encourage others to believe in true lovebut admitted aspects of being so vulnerable in public “scare her.”

“True love exists and some things last forever. And this is real. I want to take that message out into the world,” she added. “It takes a lot of vulnerability, but I couldn’t contain myself. Parts of it scare me and I think parts of it scare Ben too. He says, “Are you sure you want to say all that?” And I say, “I don’t know how else to do it, baby.”

Jen and Ben announced their engagement earlier this year before secretly taking the plunge during a short vacation to Las Vegas – and getting married for a second time in August surrounded by loved ones.

The Hustlers actress later confirmed that she had taken her boyfriend’s name and would be known personally as Mrs Affleck, while retaining her professional nickname.

In a candid interview with Vogue US, she hit back at criticism from fans questioning her decision.

“People will still call me Jennifer Lopez. But my real name will be Mrs Affleck because we’re dating,” she said. “We are husband and wife. I’m proud of that. I don’t think that’s a problem.’

“I have full control over my own life and destiny and feel empowered as a woman and as a person.

“I can understand people having their feelings about it, and that’s okay too. But if you want to know how I feel about it, I just think it’s romantic. It still carries tradition and romance to me, and maybe that’s just the type of girl I am.”

While Black Panther: Wakanda Forever Continuing his dominance at the box office, Anthony Francisco has shared some of his conceptual artwork for the Marvel film and has shown off a slew of alternate designs for Tenoch Huerta’s Namor. The designs feature Namor with a clean-shaven look and various outfits and tattoos that didn’t make it into the final cut of the film. Check them out below.

While Namor is already a fan favorite after his role in Black Panther: Wakanda ForeverMarvel Studios producer Nate Moore recently revealed that the character won’t be able to get his own movie due to rights issues with Universal Pictures. However, Namor may have supporting roles in Marvel Cinematic Universe films as seen with Wakanda forever.

Wakanda forever Ryan Coogler directed the film from a screenplay he co-wrote with Joe Robert Cole. Other starring roles are Letitia Wright, Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira, Winston Duke, Florence Kasumba, Dominique Thorne, Michaela Coel, Martin Freeman and Angela Bassett.

In Heroic Hollywood’s review of the film Ryden Scarnato wrote “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever takes after the events of Avengers: Endgame, with T’Challa’s death becoming permanent due to Boseman’s death in real life and the story that now follows the world of Wakanda dealing with that grief. Although the film is an ensemble, it ultimately rests on the shoulders of Letitia Wright’s Shuri and Angela Bassett’s Queen Ramonda.”

“Everyone here is at their best when it comes to performing, and you can’t help but think that’s because of how intertwined the film is with real life. With Wright and Bassett at the center, the two are the strongest of the group, with incredibly personal moments that are among the most heartfelt we’ve seen in the MCU. Shuri’s larger role in the film in particular also works for those who might have reservations.”
