Earlier this week it was revealed that the film rights for Namor are back with Marvel Studios meaning the character is available whenever they want to add him to their cinematic universe. Marvel is known for making some great casting decisions and they won’t have to look very far to find someone who’s eager to play Namor.
Brian Tee plays Shredder in “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows” and he recently spoke to Entertainment Weekly while promoting the film. During the interview he brought up how there’s one role that he really wants to play and it’s Namor.
“Just saying, Marvel Studios just picked up the rights to Namor, who is the Submariner, and I would love to play the Submariner. I grew up as a comic geek and the Submariner is one of my childhood’s fondest superheroes,” Tee told EW. “I feel like I can play him! If there is one role, right now, that I would love to play, it would be Namor.”
