RUMOR: Marvel Finally Moving Forward With The SUB-MARINER - But Will It Be A Movie Or TV Series?

Following last week's news that The Inhumans was scheduled to film on their shores at a new Marvel studio in Oahu, Reel News Hawaii now reckon there are also plans for a live-action Namor project.

While this "buzz" might not amount to anything, they did get some solid info on The Inhumans show, so this could be worth paying attention to.

Assuming there is something to it, are we talking about a movie of a television series? Given the fact that we haven't heard any whispers of Namor swimming onto the big screen (is an Infinity War introduction a possibility?), my guess is it's something TV related - and taking into account the fact that The Inhumans is gearing up to shoot in the same area, is it possible Reel News Hawaii's wires were crossed and The Sub-Mariner will actually feature in that show?

Let me be the first to bump this thread about Namor (Sub-Mariner). :bump:

Most anticipated character yet to be seen in marvel’s war chest (assuming they hammered out the kinks surrounding him). And I can’t help but think they will make a concerted effort to destroy aquaman’s adaptation...they will have to because there WILL be comparisons.

Did something happen?

Rumors are boiling Keanu Reeves was being considered for Sub-Mariner.

Boss Logic (famous graphic artist) created a piece to encourage the MCU.

Did Marvel buy the rights back from Universal and no one heard about it ? (shrug)

:gossip: Don't tell anyone, but like Hulk the distribution rights is what Universal owns so a solo film or TV show may not be possible. So appearing in Black Panther 2 may address this. :whatthe:

No hulk is different than Submariner (and she-hulk).  Marvel can use hulk in avengers/affiliated movies but can't do a solo hulk unless universal does distribution.  Sub-mariner, Universal owns outright, has no historical avengers affiliation.  So unless Disney wants to pay universal to use submariner, none of these rumours are worth a tinkers dam (most rumours aren't).  And if you think about it for two seconds, why would Disney be eager to pay universal for anything after spending $90BB for the far more famous and marketable Fox properties on what general audiences would now see as derivative character that WB just did? (shrug)

Marvel film & TV rights shell game - who owns what?

Quote

The IGN interview was probably the most telling there is a way to make this work, like they figured out with Hulk's distribution rights.

Quote

IGN: Finally, there were rumours circulating awhile back that Universal and Legendary Pictures were developing a Sub-Mariner movie, but there was also some confusion about who holds the rights to the character. So could Legendary make that movie at this point?

Feige: No.

IGN: So if a film were to happen it would be you guys making it?

Feige: Yes, but it’s slightly more complicated than that. Let’s put it this way – there are entanglements that make it less easy. There are older contracts that still involve other parties that mean we need to work things out before we move forward on it. As opposed to an Iron Man or any of the Avengers or any of the other Marvel characters where we could just put them in.

So there are rights discussions happening directly between Universal and Disney/Marvel which now cuts out any previous parties involved in a Namor production.

That would be interesting if so.

But again, unless Disney is looking to spend even more $ on a low tier character that will be perceived by general audiences as derivative, why go through the bother ? If they had Spider-Man I guess I could see them just trying to complete the set, but they don't.  They wanted Fox for the villains anyway, and they got them. So what exactly would be their incentive to go hard for Subby?
