Could Henry Golding be the first Malaysian to join the Marvel Cinematic Universe?
Last week, we reported that Disney was eyeing the Sarawak-born Hollywood actor for the role of villain (some might argue that he’s an anti-hero), Namor in “Black Panther 2”.
Graphic artist Boss Logic, who is well-known for producing impressive fan art, created a digital poster of the “Crazy Rich Asians” star as the human-mermaid hybrid Namor. Inspired by the comic books, Boss Logic even gave the King of Atlantis pointed ears, armour, and weaponry.
What does the Hollywood newcomer think of his first fan art? “Imperius Rex!”, Golding commented. For the uninitiated, it’s actually Namor’s signature catchphrase. Boss Logic even named the currently-untitled sequel, “Two Kings”.

Marvel has yet to make any official announcement. As for the fan community, other popular names that have been thrown out for Namor include Luke Evans and Zachary Quinto.
