Black Panther: Wakanda Forever Figures Offer Closer Look at Namor and Attuma

The first trailer for Black Panther: Wakanda Forever confirmed Tenoch Huerta is playing Namor and showed fans their first glimpse of Atlantean characters in the MCU. It’s probably going to be a while before a second, longer trailer comes along, but Hasbro is giving us a closer look at the new characters being introduced in the Black Panther sequel.

Hasbro revealed their full lineup of Marvel Legends figures inspired by Wakanda Forever at Comic-Con. You can see all seven figures in the slideshow gallery below, including figures depicting Namor and his fellow Atlantean Attuma:

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever Marvel Legends Figures

The Namor and Attuma figures both showcase the reimagined take on Atlantis in the MCU, one that seems to combine Mesoamerican elements with the classic Marvel Comics aesthetic. The Attuma figure confirms that this MCU villain fashions both weapons and armor out of the bones of sharks. We’ll see how that holds up against high-tech Wakandan weapons.

The Nakia figure also hints at some interesting developments in the film. Nakia looks to be wearing a Wakandan diving suit, which suggests she’ll be undertaking a mission to Atlantis during the course of the movie.

Alongside the five MCU figures in this wave (which also includes Everett K. Ross and Okoye), Hasbro is releasing two comic book-inspired figures. One depicts Black Panther in his classic Silver and Bronze Age costume, while the other is a Hatut Zeraze soldier (basically the Wakandan version of a SWAT team).

Interestingly, Letitia Wright’s Shuri is nowhere to be found in this lineup. Given how the new trailer dances around the question of whether or not Shuri will be suiting up as the new Black Panther, we suspect Hasbro is withholding Shuri until closer to the film’s release.
