In November, Black Panther Wakanda Forever hit theaters and wowed moviegoers around the world, earning a staggering $680 million at the box office. In addition to continuing the story of Chadwick Boseman’s iconic character, the film also introduced Tenoch Huerta as a new mutant villain: Namor. But when the trailers for the movie were released, fans noticed that something had changed between the cuts.
One Twitter user, belovasoup, pointed out that a trailer showed Namor in his green speedos with a prominent package. Another shot showed Tenoch with a more reserved fly. Naturally, Marvel fans and interested viewers alike became obsessed with finding out the truth behind Namor’s bulge.
In a recent interview, Huerta explained her member’s backstory in a surprising revelation. When presented with two photos of her body, she confessed that the less impressive photo was authentic.
He laughed: “All I can say is: the original was the photo on the right. No [the bulge]! That’s original.”
Huerta, the 41-year-old Mexican actor, admitted that things got better for him in the final cut of Black Panther. He said: “No, I mean, I’m not going to lie to people. All men in the world have a fragile masculinity, but not on that subject. I’ll say, the right one, the real one is the photo on the right.”
While Huerta confessed that his package was not portrayed correctly in the film, he was candid about representing people from all over the world as one of the first Marvel supervillains to be a person of color.
He said: “People who live in Latin America, they all feel represented and that’s beautiful for me. It’s an honor.”

Huerta added: “Something different is happening for brown-skinned people in Latin America, whether we are mestizo or indigenous, it doesn’t really matter. Of course, indigenous peoples have another history and have other oppressions, other experiences. But I think that generally speaking, brown-skinned people feel more attached to [to] character [Namor].”
“That is my perception,” he added. “Because there are a lot of messages coming in from social media and most of them are from brown-skinned people saying, ‘Hey man, I’m finally proud of the color of my skin. Finally, I can feel represented. Finally, I can see someone like me. It’s not just a superhero, it’s a person like me in a powerful role, in a powerful movie that makes this performance strong.'”
Namor played a major role in Black Panther Wakanda Forever and ultimately survived the dramatic events of the film. But his future is still uncertain.
Namor had a brutal battle with Shuri, the new Black Panther, at the end of the movie. And, though he was severely injured, he survived to see another day and team up with Wakanda.
The anti-hero was one of the first Marvel heroes ever written and dates back to 1939, so he has the potential to be a big part of the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Still, Huerta has been told to stay prepared for the possibility of his return. He said of getting in shape to play Namor again: “Actually, it worries me. No, it’s a big deal, man. I can’t cut my taco count from now on. But, yeah, it’s funny. I don’t. I know. It’s something my coach told me. ‘Okay, man, now you can rest, relax and take your time. But not too much, because if you have to play Namor one more time, you have to go through the same process again. So you better watch out and don’t go crazy on tacos.'”
