I'm nominating Marc Dacascos for Namor.
he doesn't look naturally pissed enough
He can play the pissed off badass.
I nominate Dwayne Johnson. He's got the physique, acting prowess and star power to bring real gravity to the character. In terms of the storyline (if it was done in an FF film) he totally would give a dorky Reed Richards a run for his money in Susan's mind.
And besides...his ears are already pointed. LOL
He kind of looks like one of those aliens from Close Encounters.
I agree that he has the acting chops and the face...but his physique would need seeeerrrious work to make a convincing Namor. The man looks like a collection of walking sticks.
meh, he doesnt scream namor to me at all..
dwayne eh.... i think he'd kill the movie acting wise personally
Walking Sticks??? We aren't talking about Abraham Sapien here.
I just finished reading it and feels like an old science fiction movie. It's got a great cinematic feel to it and I think it would be an original and plausible way to bring Namor to the big screen.
Anyone else have any thoughts?
What's the plot?
From Comic Book Database
Sounds like a movie all in itself without Namor.
It wouldn't make a good Namor movie because Namor is only in the entire series for a total of 10 panels. but he is on all the covers.
Yes, i do. It would need a little added but would make for a greta film IMO.
No, you can't make a Namor film almost without Namor.
its great but you need a lot more namor
So, is there any news on a Namor movie? I've read Jonathan Mostow was attached to the film, and I've also seen David Boreanaz name linked to Namor. So does anyone know what is going on.
Namor happens to be one of my favorite Marvel characters, so I'd obviously like to see a film made.
The last time I heard anything about Namor was when like Spiderman first came out, and Marvel was greenlighting everything. Described it as "Star Wars underwater." The description alone got me excited. I didnt care if it was Namor, Aquaman, or original creations, it just seemed awesome.
And I really dislike Boreanaz as Namor option. I dont hate Bor, I love Bones and I think he is much better on that than he was on Angel and I would actually give him a shot as Green Lantern based on how much better he is in Bones, hes just not Namor, not even in the slightest.
Im a big fan of Luke Goss for the role (check my sig). He plays badass, ruthless fantasy types pretty damn well. Check him in Blade 2, Hellboy 2, and Charlie (especially Charlie). Oddly enough Goss was supposed to play Death in Crow Wicked Prayer but was replaced by Boreanaz.
Namor should show up in the Avengers and team up with the Hulk against the main team. (After freeing Cap from the ice, natch)
Does anyone know if Universal still has the rights to NAMOR? Maybe they could work a deal with Marvel like they did with HULK...
I really hope they make this movie. I also really hope they make it epic.
Dwayne has to play Wyatt Wingfoot, so I vote for Luke Goss for Namor. He looked pretty good in HB2 with his shirt off, so I think he has the build. You want Namor to look like a swimmer, not a weight lifter.
