Fans spot Marvel edited character's penis size in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever

Fans spot Marvel edited character's penis size in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever

What was the reason??

It's no secret that Marvel Studios are well versed in the world of CGI, using it to create everything from extra-terrestrial worlds to horrifying villains - and how can we forget all those fight scenes?!

But eagle-eyed fans were confused, to say the least, when they spotted an unusual editing choice in the recent Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.

The sequel to 2018's Black Panther is officially out in cinemas and is being met with rave reviews, as the nation of Wakanda deals with a new threat following the loss of King T'Challa (Chadwick Boseman).

While most viewers were enthralled by the heart-racing action sequences and emotional scenes, some were more distracted by the digital editing - especially the changes made to Namor's... erm, assets...

Namor, played by Tenoch Huerta, appears as the villain in the latest Marvel film. He's half human, half Atlantean royalty (think Marvel's answer to Aquaman), and his outfit of choice tends to be a skimpy pair of green shorts with some gold arm and shin plates - you know, for protection.

The Speedo-like quality of Namor's costume doesn't exactly leave much to the imagination - or at least it didn't before Disney got a hold of it.

Some fans couldn't help but notice that some strange edits had been made to Namor's shorts, presumably to make him less, well, eye-catching.

Sharing a side-by-side of Namor in the Black Panther trailer compared to the theatrical cut, one Marvel fan called for justice, demanding: "GIVE NAMOR HIS PENIS BACK."

Fans have pointed out how Namor, played by Tenoch Huerta, has been seemingly edited in the final cut.

Disney isn't exactly known for its sex appeal and typically do try to keep things PG at all costs, but there's something wrong about stealing Namor's manhood like this, and other Marvel fans tend to agree.

"No because they really wasted VFX on this I’m sick thinking about it," one shocked Twitter user wrote.

"Imagine having to be an editor removing his bulge frame by frame for hours on end LMFAOO," laughed a second.

And a third joked: "Damn, I guess you can say that his dick was Nomor."

Now that's what you call top-tier comedy.

Aside from Namor's crotch erasure, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever can do no wrong in the eyes of film critics, marking the second-biggest opening weekend of the year, closely following Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.

The film has been presented as a tribute to the late Chadwick Boseman, who sadly died in August 2020 following a private battle with colon cancer.

Allowing the Black Panther cast to mourn Boseman's death both on and off screen, Wakanda Forever dealt with the death of his character King T'Challa, and introduced his genius younger sister Shuri (Letita Wright) as his successor.

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is in theatres now.
