Tenoch Huerta could be one of the Mexicans to join the Marvel Cinematic Universe, since some reports indicate that the actor will be part of the cast of Black Panther 2, a sequel that will arrive after the death of the protagonist of the first work, Chadwick Boseman.
The first reports, released by Deadline and The Hollywood Reporter, indicated that Black Panther 2 would begin production in 2021 despite the death of Boseman , which has begun to generate speculation about what the film will be about and who will be the actor who will take the mantle of the Panther (who until now is expected to be Letitia Wright who played Shuri in the previous film and in the Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame films ).
The reports indicate Tenoch Huerta would be in talks to play the main villain of this sequel, although it has not been indicated what character he could take in this work.
Chadwick Boseman lost his life on August 28 from colon cancer, leaving Marvel and Disney without a clear plan for a sequel. However, since in the comics Shuri took the mantle of the Panther after the death of her brother, it is expected that it will happen in the same way, in addition to serving to promote diversity within Marvel cinema.
Tenoch Huerta had signed to participate in the Cortés y Moctezuma series produced by Amazon Prime, however, the series was canceled. At the moment he has not been confirmed for the Marvel film , but some reports already indicate him as part of the cast, with which he would join Lupita Nyong’o, Winston Duke, Angela Basset, Daniel Kaluuya and other actors that we saw in the first headband.
Tenoch Huerta was one of the recipients of one of the GQ Men of the Year Awards, along with Yalitza Aparicio . In his speech, he spoke about the importance of diversity in cinema and why one should speak openly about the racism that exists in Mexico.
