In an interesting turn of events it seems Disney and Marvel are now being called out for digitally shrinking Namor’s bulge for the ‘Black Panter: Wakanda Forever’ film. I guess the new name pronunciation isn’t the only thing that’s Nah More.
It seems that the speedos were a bit more revealing on an actor than on a comic character. Disney/Marvel felt they needed to minimize the bulge.
This was revealed in a Tweet asking Marvel to give Namor his penis back.

Namor actor Tenoch Huerta apparently called the shorts his “shame shorts.”
The comments are gold though:
Imagine working overtime at 3 am and you haven’t seen your family in weeks because you have to airbrush out Namor the Submariner’s bulge frame by frame.

“make sure the womens’ costumes show off their curves but erase all the mens’ penises, please” 🙄

Like why would y’all edit out namor’s meat? Bffr.

Best part is how they had to edit out Namor’s junk because it was too big

I just want to know how mundane the note for that edit is.
“Namor bulge too big, might distract audience – please reduce.”
How I’d write the note, which is why I can’t work corporate:
“Namor slanging more meat than a Thanksgiving feast – please flatten.”

so, like, did some executive come along and tell them to edit namor’s package after the fact?
was it too distracting for test audiences?
like, what’s the story of how you put a guy in those little shorts to begin with, and then go “oh, hmm, penis” afterward, exactly?

Some are saying this isn’t the first time they’ve done this. Allegedly they did this with Tom Hiddleston in his Loki costume too. But it’s the internet so it could all be fake.
first Tom Hiddleston as Loki and now Tenoch Huerta as Namor. Marvel having to edit out their actors’ crotches to keep it PG rated is so funny lmaoo pic.twitter.com/Ys5eSsTfsM

I can honestly say this was not something I thought I would see today.
