It was a total phallacy.
Tenoch Huerta confirmed his bulge was edited out of the final cut of “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” after viral photos showed the actor looking much more well-endowed in the movie’s trailer than on the, ahem, big screen.
“The only thing that I can say is the original was the photo [on] the right,” Huerta told Rolling Stone when asked in a recent interview whether he was OK with the CGI. “Without [the bulge]! That’s original.
Huerta, 41, added that he didn’t want to “lie to people,” telling the magazine, “Every man in the world, we have fragile masculinity, but not in that issue. I will say, the right one, the real one is the photo on the right.”
The Marvel star recently went viral when a fan tweeted two photos pointing out the noticeable difference in the size of his character Namor’s penis.
“GIVE NAMOR HIS PENIS BACK,” the Twitter user wrote on Nov. 14.
Several fans flooded the social media site with reactions to the special-effects flop.
“Imagine working overtime at 3 am and you haven’t seen your family in weeks because you have to airbrush out Namor the Submariner’s bulge frame by frame,” one person joked.
“Normalize guys with visible bulges in their jumpsuits. It’s like if they were trying to flat women’s breasts in jumpsuits too,” a second person wrote.
“omg ur right y tf they take away his d–k like that’s demonic,” another agreed.
“During the movie I kept thinking WHERE IS HIS PACKAGE, cause I knew a man who looks like that had to have a decent one. I wanted that distraction bad,” one moviegoer tweeted.
