One of the most anticipated stagings by the fanatical public of comics and stories of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (UCM) is without a doubt Black Panther: Wakanda Forever which will hit theaters on November 11, 2022.
One of the situations that has captured the eyes of the world of comics and specifically by fans of Marvel in Mexico is the adaptation that will have Black Panther: Wakanda Forever based on pre-Hispanic cultures and that the main antagonist of the film will be played by the renowned Mexican actor, Tenoch Huerta.
Under this tenor, the also Graduate in Journalism and Communication from the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM) has tried to remain level-headed in the sense of not delving too deeply into namorthe famous antihero of the comics of Marvel.
However, and for the first time since his introduction as the main antagonist of the prequel to King T’Challa/Black Panther, The one born in Ecatepec, State of Mexico had the opportunity to delve into how the first approach with the famous screenwriter was Ryan Coogler during an interview for Life and Style.
The Mexican explained that he was the director of films like Fruitvale Station (2013), believe (2015) and Black Panther (2018) who contacted him directly to offer him to be the main villain of the film that will have the purpose of ending Phase 4 of the UCM.
“It was all very bizarre, I was in New Orleans shooting a movie and suddenly my team in the United States told me that Ryan Coogler wanted to talk to me, but we didn’t know why.. Already in the call, he began to tell me part of the story, giving me some clues about the movie, about the history, what was going to happen with Wakanda”, he said between laughs.
After giving him the first details, the 41-year-old actor could not contain his emotion, but from one moment to another the meeting was frustrated by remote connection problems, so he stopped listening to everything that Coogler was telling him about the ambitious franchise of the company headed by Kevin Feig.
“So, ‘how do you see it?’, they asked me and I answered that everything was fine, but I didn’t really know what he was offering me because I hadn’t understood it. It wasn’t until a couple of days later that I realized that they were offering me the new Marvel character!”, he replied with obvious emotion.
Added to this, Tenoch Huerta later explained that he had to lie to Coogler and the entire staff of Marvel Studios about one of the skills that he would have to put into practice within the recordings that took place from Atlanta.
“Oh, they also asked me if I knew how to swim. I replied that I had never drowned and returned to my managers”, he recalled between laughs.
It was that question, whether he knew how to swim, that marked the rest of the conversations with the company led by Kevin Feige, for in reality the histrion did not know how to swim.
“Of course I didn’t say anything then, because they weren’t going to give me the role. We had to explain to them through my lawyer in the United States that this is how we Mexicans are. We never say no and then we see what fart”, he remarked.
Finally, the also activist against racism in Mexico and part of the Poder Prieto collective delved into the creative power that gave him Marvel when giving life to namor, In addition, he made special emphasis that the film will be one of the most rebellious and moving in the history of UCM.
“They were always very open to my comments and proposals to improve the character. I can say that they listened to 90 percent of my notes and proposals […] In the comics, Namor is anti-capitalist and anti-colonialist. He is cool!”, he finished for Life and Style.
The sequel to Black Panther will address the story since the death in 2020 of Chadwick Bosemanwho played King T’Challa/Black Panther before passing away at the age of 43 after losing his battle with colon cancer, leaving an indelible mark on the UCM.
Under that tenor, one of the big questions that persist despite the publication of the first trailer revealed during Comic-Con 2022 is how the film directed by Ryan Coogler has addressed the death of the person in charge of carrying the mantle of Black Panther since Phase 3 when his character debuted in Captain America: Civil War (2016).
