While almost all the MCU movies are always filled with huge Easter eggs to get the die rolling, the latest Marvel Cinematic Universe entrant – Avengers: Endgame, could be called the most Easter egg filled movie in the last decade to come under the Marvel banner. They have teased and hinted at almost every little detail that may or may not actually be associated with Marvel’s future movie slate. One of the most fascinating hints in Endgame that missed almost everyone’s attention leads us to believe that Marvel is making plans to introduce Namor the Submariner into the MCU!! Presenting – Avengers: Endgame might have teased the existence of Namor in MCU!!
SPOILER ALERT: Major Avengers: Endgame Spoilers ahead. Slide away if you still have not watched it yet….
Thanos wins the match and snaps his fingers to wipe out half of all life to ever exist in the Universe in Infinity War. When Nebula and Stark finally make it to Earth, Nebula reveals that she knows where Thanos might be. The surviving Avengers travel to the Garden, where they realize that what Thanos did cannot be undone since the Mad Titan used the Infinity Stones’ power to destroy the Stones itself. The heroes kill Thanos and decide to venture back to Earth.
Then the 5-year time jump happens.
We see Black Widow addressing a group of heroes in different parts of the world, trying to manage the situation Thanos left them with. Captain Marvel is handling the outer space territories. War Machine is investigating a string of murders in Mexico. Rocket is doing his best to stay afloat. And Okoye is utilizing the resources of Wakanda to help the Avengers investigate an underwater Earthquake. It is here that the Namor Easter egg comes to play.
Okoye is investigating an earthquake that happened in an area deep underwater near the African coast. In previous Marvel movies, it has been revealed that Atlantis as a city already exists in the MCU. The Avengers: Endgame Easter egg only confirms that there is something happening down there. When Black Widow asks Okoye how they intend to handle that situation, Okoye says that they handle it “by leaving it alone”. In the comics, Wakanda and Atlantis are two of the most advanced nations on Earth who also happen to be bitter enemies. Namor once led his nation into war with Black Panther and Wakanda. The result was Wakanda winning the battle and imprisoning Atlantis’ generals, making them stand trial for war crimes. A Vengeful Namor would later reveal secrets to Thanos that would then compel him to attack Wakanda. The final outcome was both nations stood destroyed and in ruins.
If what Okoye said is to be paid heed to, then Wakanda is clearly staying off the African waters mainly because the country of Wakanda does not want to outrage its rival nation Atlantis exists in the MCU and this Easter egg proves that Namor the Submariner, considered to the first official mutant and the King of Atlantis in Marvel Comics, is also alive and kicking in the Marvel Universe. Maybe Marvel Cinematic Universe’s Phase 4 will give us some much-needed answers.
The Last solo superhero Marvel movie to be released under the Disney banner is Captain Marvel. The movie is currently in theatres. The official film synopsis for the movie reads:
