Huerta was asked if he thought people would compare him to Jason Momoa’s Aquaman, and it would be really hard if not. We don’t see many underwater kings, and to have two of them in the upcoming movies (“Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom” to be released on December 25, 2023) means it’s inevitable. from comparison. Huerta explains the difference:
“Namor is so different from Aquaman. Jason is a great actor, and he’s great at creating that character. These two characters are so different. Their motivations are opposite. I mean, it’s an honor. compared to different actors, but I think, this time, people will see that we’re talking about different things.”
When he talks about motivation, they to be very different. In fact, Namor’s motives are similar to that of another character in “Aquaman.” While Arthur Curry aka Aquaman is trying to protect the world on dry land, Orm (Patrick Wilson) focuses on the undersea world. Namor is going against the surface world, just like Orm.
