Black Panther 2's Tenoch Huerta addresses Infinity War 'plot hole'

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever might be the most well-received Marvel Cinematic Universe movie of Phase 4 and 5 (or perhaps second only to Spider-Man: No Way Home), but that doesn't mean that there are a few things fans take issue with.

One of the big bugbears – that could be an issue with future MCU projects as more new characters are introduced – is that it's not really explained why Namor and the people of Talokan didn't surface (pun intended) when Thanos has Snapped half the universe out of existence.

When asked by TheWrap if he could explain what his character was up to during and after the whole Thanos thing, Namor actor Tenoch Huerta... couldn't actually explain it, because he himself doesn't know what the deal is.

"That is a question I don't have the answer for," he said. "On social media you can keep some photos of me training and sleeping on the couch, maybe Namor was sleeping on the couch, or training, or ruling. That's a joke. Honestly, I don't know.

"That question was on my mind when I received the script for the first time, 'what happened at the time?' I'm sure the big bosses have the answer."

Following the success of Wakanda Forever, a third Black Panther movie seems likely. However, Letitia Wright recently stated that it's not a definite thing yet, and it would be quite a while away even if it was officially greenlit.

"There is always the hope that you would have another film, especially in a franchise," she said.

"If there is to be another film, which I hope there will be, I think there will be. It takes time to make it. You have to go through the script process."

Black Panther and Black Panther: Wakanda Forever are streaming on Disney+.
