Namor actor Tenoch Huerta responds to claims his penis size was edited in Black Panther 2

Namor actor Tenoch Huerta responds to claims his penis size was edited in Black Panther 2

The Wakanda Forever star has explained what all the hoo-ha is with his bulge.

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever has attracted loads of headlines since it was released earlier this month.

It was called a beautiful tribute to late actor Chadwick Boseman, a stunning sequel to continue the story of Wakanda, and an empowering platform to showcase diverse cultures from around the world.

However, there was also another headline that seemed to pop up after the movie dropped in cinemas.

A viral tweet suggested Namor, played by Tenoch Huerta, had his bulge scrubbed out by visual effects artists in post-production.

The movie's villain is half human, half Atlantean royalty, and his outfit of choice tends to be a skimpy pair of green shorts with some gold arm and shin plates.

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."

Loads of people demanded Disney release the #PenisCut version of the movie, which is a terribly thought out hashtag when you think about it.

But now, we've finally been given some information from the man who donned those tiny green shorts.

Tenoch Huerta was asked by Rolling Stone what his thoughts were on the viral tweet.

Firstly, he could only laugh.

But then he said: "The only thing that I can say is: the original was the photo in the right. Without [the bulge]! That’s original.

"No, I mean, I’m not going to lie to people. Every man in the world, we have fragile masculinity, but not in that issue.

"I will say, the right one, the real one is the photo on the right."

Interesting, very interesting.


He also admitted in the interview about how difficult it will be for him if Namor gets cast in a future Marvel film because he'll have to get shredded again.

"It’s a big problem, man," he said to Rolling Stone.

"I can’t cut off my amount of tacos from now on. But, yeah, it’s funny. I don’t know.

"It’s something that my trainer told me. 'Okay, man, now you can rest, you can chill and take your time. But not too much, because if you have to play Namor one more time, you need to go through the same process all over again. So it’s better you take care of yourself and don’t get crazy with tacos'.”

That is very relatable. Tacos are life.
