“Bones” and “Angel” star David Boreanaz could be up for the role of Marvel comics hero “The Sub-Mariner” reports Superhero Hype.
A scooper for the site says that David recently auditioned for the role in the Universal Pictures project which Jonathan Mostow is directing.
In the comics Namor is the son of a human sea captain and of a princess of the mythical undersea kingdom of Atlantis. Namor possesses the super-strength and aquatic abilities of the “Homo mermanus” race.
Through the years, he has been alternatively portrayed as a good-natured but short-fused superhero, or a hostile invader seeking vengeance for perceived wrongs that misguided surface-dwellers committed against his kingdom.
