Is 'Namor: The Sub-Mariner' Back at Marvel Studios?!

It has been long suggested that the King of Atlantis himself Namor was under the Marvel Studios banner. Some suggested that he is actually at FOX given in the comics his people refereed to him as a "mutant" as well as having strong ties with the Fantastic Four. This proved to be inaccurate given Namor doesn't have the Mutant X gene thus not contractually a Mutant. He simply has pink skin compared to his blue skinned kin. 

Then this past summer Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige revealed that Universal Studios of all places owns the rights to Namor. This came out of left field for most fans given we only know the main three studios to own Marvel characters is Marvel Studios, FOX and Sony.

Now Borys Kit of The Hollywood Reporter dropped some details that the King of the Oceans maybe used by Marvel Studios after all!
This through us all for a whirl since we all took Feige's word as gospel on the matter. But one other character is technically at both Universal and Marvel Studios. Back in 2008 when The Incredible Hulk debuted it was revealed that Marvel Studios had gotten the rights back to him as long as Universal Pictures gets distribution rights. This may very well be the same case for Namor!

Lest we forget Atlantis was also shown (As well as Wakanda) in 2010's Iron Man II on a S.H.I.E.L.D database screen. As well as the ORACLE company being hinted to in the film as well.

Oh, by the way Marvel if you need an actor I'd go with Zachary Quinto!

Stay tuned as this story develops...
