A few weeks ago Production Weekly published the following synopsis that would reveal Atlantis as an important part of the plot of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever:
Both Wakanda and Atlantis are occult civilizations with advanced technology and increased militaristic abilities that decided to separate from the rest of the world for their own safety and, in a way, out of fear. Wakanda feared their technology would be abused. Atlantis feared that the surface dwellers would come and desecrate the mythical city just as they did so many years ago. And their fears are further increased when these two once-hidden nations clash. Wakanda and Atlantis have a surprisingly intertwined history. Wakanda is the only country in the world with access to vibranium. However, rumors of its power spread throughout the world, and Namor’s human father was sent to search for this rare material in Antarctica.
