The movie “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever”, which concludes Marvel’s Phase 4, is hot.
According to the integrated computer network of the Korean Film Council on Nov 19th, “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” attracted 1,440,078 viewers and has been maintaining its No.1 position at the box office since its release.
In the midst of this, fans found a fly in the ointment in “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever”, drawing attention.
On Nov 17th (local time), UK’s Daily Mail reported, “Marvel fans were left confused by a bold editing choice in the new Black Panther: Wakanda Forever film.”
The scene in question was first noticed by some Eagled-eyed viewers.
The scene in question they mentioned was an important body part of Namor, played by Mexican actor Tenoch Huerta Mejía (41 years old).
Namor appears in the movie wearing tight green shorts like a swimsuit.
Seeing him wearing tight shorts with no empty space, fans pointed out the difference between his looks in the trailer and in the movie.
Fans noticed that Namor’s masculinity (?) was lessened in the movie, unlike in the trailer.
In fact, the photos released by fans show a clear difference.
Fans speculated that the size of the embarrassing important part was intentionally reduced during the editing process.
In Disney+’s movie “Splash” featuring the mermaid, Disney edited the scene where her buttocks are exposed by lengthening her hair, so most fans see it as a credible claim.
Fans showed enthusiastic reactions such as “Give him back his masculinity“, “What did they think while editing that” and “It’s not polite to the actor.”
Meanwhile, the movie “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever”, which was released four years after the 2018 film “Black Panther”. It touched fans’ hearts with tribute to the Black Panther star Chadwick Boseman, who unexpectedly died from colon cancer in 2020.
In the first week of its release, the movie is gaining huge popularity, earning a whopping $180 million (about 241.7 billion won) in North America alone.
