Judgment Day leader Damian Priest would receive a special proposal to play an important role within Marvel's Black Panther: Wakanda Forever. According to the Fightful Select portal, the athlete would have been asked to play the role of Namor, the main antagonist of the film or one of the other members of the fictional kingdom of Talokan.
The same source has not yet confirmed whether the wrestler has accepted the proposal or not but has only reported that the offer was there. Damian Priest has never had a role of this type, nor in the new Black Panther which premiered on November 11 in the United States.
The Namor part, however, was played by Mexican actor Tenoch Huerta.

If he were to be part of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, Damian Priest would follow in the footsteps of WWE legends like Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson and Dave Bautista, above all.

Meanwhile, Styles' faction company Michin, also known as Mia Yim, will have a match within the WarGames alongside Raw champion Bianca Belair, Asuka, Alexa Bliss as well as a mysterious partner who will be revealed to SmackDown.
Michin's team will face Bayley, Dakota Kai, Iyo Sky, Nikki Cross and Rhea Ripley. Speaking during WrestleRant, Damian Priest spoke about the possible new members of his stable, inviting a well-known celebrity to join the Judgment Day.
In an interview with SiriusXM's of Busted Open Radio, AEW star Pres10 Vance spoke about how Priest had now elevated himself to a major player in the Stamford-based promotion. "I remember when I met [Damian Priest] he was ...
already wrestling for maybe 12 years. And he told me 'My goal is to get you signed, just so I have a piece of your career, because I know I'm never going to get signed. I'm too old.' And now he blew up, you know?"
