Marvel fans are now gearing up for the highly-anticipated Black Panther: Wakanda Forever's arrival in November. However, it seems that the sequel's release date is in jeopardy after Tenoch Huerta recently confirmed that the upcoming film is currently undergoing some reshoots.
Black Panther: Wakanda Forever Reshoots, Places Release Date in Jeopardy
In a recent interview with W Radio Mexico, Tenoch Huerta confirmed that Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is currently undergoing some reshoots and also revealed some thrilling details about the upcoming film. Translated by @Chavernand, Huerta says that the reshoots are just adding "little missing pieces" to the sequel.
"To be honest, my life hasn’t changed that much. I’m doing reshoots that are like little missing pieces, like the take of a hand, a movement, some new framing. Like little things to do at the end of every movie, and that sometimes you need to do them again."
The actor revealed that he immediately went back to the studios to continue working on the reshoots after Marvel Studios' panel at San Diego Comic-Con.
"As a matter of fact, that same day at the end of our presentation at Comic-Con, we went back to the studios, to keep working, so I haven’t had that much spare time. I’ve been working all these days, I think this is my first day off… kind of."
Nonetheless, Huerta reassured fans that everything is going as planned with Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.
"So, everything’s going well, everything’s in order. I feel really happy, at peace, and satisfied. I mean, eventually, I’ll be back at home and all the bills are going to be there, right? [laughs]"
Tenoch Huerta's Casting as Namor in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever
It's no secret that the Narcos: Mexico star will be playing Namor The Sub-Mariner in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever. In fact, he even recalled in an interview with Variety about wearing the Namor costume for the first time. He said:
"It's amazing. I mean, everybody pretends to be a superhero or to be part of [these] movies and then you are part of it. And then you are the superhero, and then you are wearing the costume. It's your skin, your voice, your brain, your talent, your story. It's overwhelming."
In Marvel Comics, Namor is originally a superhero and a trusted ally of the Avengers. However, based on the recent reports and the newly-dropped trailer, it looks like Namor will be the main villain of the film. Hopefully, Marvel Studios gives Namor a pivotal storyline that could allow him to return in subsequent MCU projects.
Black Panther: Wakanda Forever will hit the big screens on November 11.
