Kevin Feige Acknowledges Complications Surrounding The Rights To NAMOR THE SUB-MARINER

Fans have been wondering why there's been no sign of Namor the Sub-Mariner in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and Marvel boss Kevin Feige has now addressed some of the rights complications surrounding him.

The reason there hasn't been a Hulk movie is because the rights are tied to Universal Pictures somehow. While Marvel Studios is free to use the Jade Giant in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Mark Ruffalo has said in past interviews that the rival studio doesn't "know how to play well with Marvel."

Now, it seems the same applies to what's happening with Namor the Sub-Mariner; however, the key difference seems to be that Marvel isn't able to use the character at all, hence why he hasn't shown up to help Earth's Mightiest Heroes do battle with threats like the Chitauri invasion, Ultron, and Thanos.

 
With the Disney/Fox deal, if that pans out, with the Sony rights sharing deal with Spidey, the one big loose end, then, is Namor and Universal. Can you tell us what the status of that is? Is there any chance for him to just pop up in an MCU film? It just sounds like an incredibly complicated situation, for one character.
 
It is. I think there’s a way to probably figure it out but it does have — it’s not as a clean or clear as the majority of the other characters.
 
If Marvel could deliver an undersea adventure before Aquaman is released, they probably would have by now. Unfortunately, it doesn't appear as if it's easy as that and there's a chance Namor won't even factor into Phase 4. That's a shame too, especially as seeing him clash with Black Panther would be so much fun! What do you guys think of Feige's remarks? Let us know that in the comments section.
