The first look at the MCU’s Atlanteans in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever has been revealed. Thanks to MCU Facility, the merchandise for the movie is circulating online which also features Attuma – an Atlantean in Marvel comics. The character has blue skin and an ancient warrior style of armor and weapons.
Attuma is the ruler of the Atlanteans who were banished from Atlantis. In the comics, Attuma is portrayed as a blue-skinned Atlantean, but Namor is half-Atlantean/half-mutant and has never had blue-tinted skin.
More details should come out soon
Fans should get more information about the movie very soon. The Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is slated for release in November 2022 so the trailer should come out in the next few weeks. This merch clearly indicates that Namor and the Atlanteans will play a major role in the movie and should get featured in the trailer.
