Brian Tee Explains How He Would Play Marvel's Prince Namor

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows is now available on Blu-ray, DVD or digital download, and ComicBook.com had the opportunity to talk with the the fearsome foursome's greatest enemy, the Shredder, portrayed in the film by actor Brian Tee.

In addition to his time in the Shredder costume, Tee also made news recently when he brought up a dream role that he would love to play someday, which was none other than Marvel's Namor. Marvel Studios has reacquired the rights to the popular character, and so some expect the world's first mutant to eventually show up in the cinematic universe.

ComicBook.com on-air host Chris Killian asked Tee on Facebook Live what he would want to do with the part if he was able to portray the King of Atlantis.

"You know what's funny is my career I've kind of played villains, guys with attitude, guys with chips on their shoulders, um, in reading the comics books and being a fan of Namor, that's kind of this guy's persona," Tee said. "Even though he's a hero or a quote unquote good guy. He's kind of a bit of an anti-hero with a bit of an edge, and I feel like I kind of fall in that line, especially with other things that I've done. So that's the kind of aspect that I would love to bring into Namor. He's not just like a good guy, you know, he's definitely got some faults of his own, but I think when it really boils down to doing the right thing he will, and you know it's Namor, it's Marvel, it's the first Mutant, it's everything you can kind of dreamed of as a kid and wanted to portray, and so I would absolutely love and be honored to play him if the time does come around, and I thank you guys for the movement!"
