CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR Co-Writer Would Like To Introduce 'Namor' To The MCU

Along with partner Chris Markus, Steve McFeely successfully introduced both Black Panther and Spider-Man into the MCU. So, who would he like to tackle next? None other than The Sub-Mariner.


For many years there was quite a bit of confusion about which studio (Marvel or Universal) held the right to the Namor character, with even the likes of Kevin Feige seemingly not 100% certain. But then, during a 2014 interview, the Marvel head honcho did confirm that his studio could ultimately make a Namor movie if it came down to it - though apparently things still remained a bit "complicated".

That was pretty much the last we'd heard about it, but now Civil War co-writer Steve McFeely has named the volatile Sub-Mariner as the character he'd most like to bring into the Marvel Cinematic Universe.


"Namor. He is kind of a jerk and has a chip on his shoulder and he is a king and lives underwater. The degree of difficulty is so high, though. Cause it could be a great movie or it could be truly terrible."

Even if Marvel ever does get moving on a Namor movie, we know Warners will get their aquatic superhero out there first with Aquaman - so the smart thing to do is wait and see how the public reacts to that.

What do you guys think? At the end of the day, if anyone can work Namor into the MCU succesully, it's Markus and McFeely.
