Namor Movie/TV Rights Back At Marvel?

Could the movie rights to Namor The Submariner be back in the hands of Marvel Studios? Marvel Chief Creative Officer Joe Quesada seems to think so.

Quesada recently appeared on the Fat Man on Batman podcast and was asked if Marvel Studios own Namor’s rights. Quesada said, “I can’t speak for studios. As far as I know, yeah we do. It’s not at Fox, it’s not at Sony. Yeah.”

Quesada was also asked if we might see Namor soon in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and he said, “I cannot confirm or deny, sir.”

The biggest omission from Quesada’s response is that he left out Universal who is believed to have had the rights to Namor at one time. Universal’s rights to the Hulk reverted to Marvel sometime ago, but they reportedly retain distribution rights to any standalone picture featuring the character, perhaps Namor is under the same restrictions.
