What would a Namor solo film entail?

It’s no surprise that Namor, Marvel’s first mutant, has an undeniable power that complements his unique gifts. According to director Ryan Coogler, Namor possesses strength comparable to Thor and even the Hulk, in specific instances. Keeping Huerta’s perception in mind, Namor is more of an anti-hero than an antagonist, who protects his nation only to let it fall prey to threats from the outside world.

Namor’s prominent appearances in the Marvel comics add to all the possibilities for the plot of a Namor solo film if he does come out. Even introducing Namor’s undersea kingdom, Talokan, with all its culture and glory would add to the richness of a Namor-centric story.
