BLACK PANTHER: WAKANDA FOREVER Promo Art Provides A First Look At The Villainous Attuma

Up until now, we weren't even sure that Attuma would appear in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, but some newly revealed promo art confirms that the Atlantean villain will factor into the sequel.

Well, it looks like the rumors claiming that Attuma would make his MCU debut in Marvel Studios' Black Panther: Wakanda Forever were accurate!

Some new promo art for Ryan Coogler's upcoming sequel has been shared online (via RPK News), giving us another look at Okoye and Shuri and a first glimpse of the villainous Atlantean.

In the comics, Attuma was a barbaric warlord and the sworn enemy of Namor the Sub-Mariner. He is a formidable warrior who believes himself to be the prophesied conqueror of the Atlantean Empire. As you can see, his character design his mostly comic-accurate, but his costume has been refitted to appear more Aztec/Mayan-like in origin.

This not only confirms Attuma's involvement in Wakanda Forever, but is obviously a pretty good indication that Namor and the other Atlantean characters we've been hearing about will also appear. This was never really in question after several leaked set photos, but it's worth noting that we've yet to get official word that Tenoch Huerta has been cast in the role.

Images Removed At The Request Of The Studio

The artwork also features Shuri sporting some new duds. There were rumors that Marvel Studios was planning to move forward with the sequel without Letitia Wright, who came under fire for supposedly espousing anti-vax views on set. This led to speculation that the actress may even have been fired outright, but clearly that wasn't the case.

Official plot details are still under wraps, but we have been assured that the MCU sequel will honor the late Chadwick Boseman while continuing the legacy of his character, T'Challa. We may now know how Marvel Studios and director Ryan Coogler intend to achieve this, but it's quite spoilery, so click here if you want to know more!

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is currently scheduled to hit theaters on November 11, 2022.
