Tenoch Huerta Just Confirmed That His Bulge Wasn't Edited Out Of "Black Panther 2"

"Every man in the world, we have fragile masculinity, but not in that issue."

Tenoch Huerta is clearing up a Black Panther: Wakanda Forever controversy — and it all has to do with his bulge in his Namor costume!

Following the movie's debut this month, fans noticed something a little different between Tenoch's appearance in the trailer and the actual film.

According to the actor, the real image is the one from the film and not the trailer.

"The only thing that I can say is: The original was the photo in the right," he told Rolling Stone. "Without [the bulge]! That's original."

He continued, "No, I mean, I'm not going to lie to people. Every man in the world, we have fragile masculinity, but not in that issue."

While that gives us a definite answer, I'm still left wondering: Where did the trailer bulge come from??

It seems as though the world may never know.
