The biggest problem with Aquaman is that it would be absurdly difficult and expensive to do him properly in live action with all of those underwater scenes.

^Of course it will. Hence why they need someone with the ambition and sense to handle a budget.

Doesn't any project?

After the Water World disaster, studios I would think would be extremely hesitant. I always found Aquaman to be sort of the butt of the joke in Hollywood. It was the role Vincent Chase got in Entourage and I found it to be very tongue in cheek how they portrayed it.

Unfortunately, DC has tried to better his image, but he still is viewed as that guy who can only talk to fish and is only useful underwater.

If that studio has the proper rights to certain characters, I think it's a total no-brainer to allow more team-ups in comic book movies. I mean, think about it--between Marvel's and DC Universes, especially the later, most of their popularity has stemmed from team-up storylines and issues.

The things that kept it back so far up until now is; narrative structure (how much is too much for one movie), ROI (will spending $200m+ on such a project be profitable), and interest (why would anyone care?).

Now that Avengers has exposed that perfect formula, I expect within the next 15 years that there will be at least two more attempts at a Marvel and/or DC Comics team-up film NOT including The Avengers 2.

The obvious one(s) right off the bat would be a team-up with X-Men, and/or Fantastic Four, and/or Daredevil.

While Namor is a comic buttjoke of the angry immoral man of the sea. Undeveloped from its golden age beginnings when its franchise could be more of Game of Thrones of the sea. Aquaman as a franchise is more developed, yet gets shortchanged by "that" particular Aquaman's ability.

Fortunately for Marvel, their seemingly deeper lineups of B-list characters tend to put Namor on the back of the queue list. Yeah, Marvel has Strange, Danny Rand, Nova, Ms Marvel, T'Challa before they look to Namor. On the other hand for DC, they're torn between which character should be done first after WW, GL and Flash: Hawkman (another buttjoke) or Aquaman.

I can't see any circumstances where the X-Men would team up with Daredevil. Someone like Spider-man and Daredevil? Makes sense, their turfs (and villains) overlap. But all they own is X-Men and Fantastic Four.

X-Men and Fantastic Four, aside from maybe Professor X mentioning, or hanging out with Reed, I can't see more than that.

Doesn't help that no one cares about Fox's Fantastic Four or Daredevil films. So, they'd have to use the character, not the franchise.

Why are you calling Namor immoral....? Just because he runs around in Speedos all the time doesn't mean he's some kind of pervert. I mean, maybe. Yeah. Kinda. But....I don't know....you think?

He consistently tries to steal a man's wife from her family. He's immoral.

Namor is the type a guy that you laugh at and the he procides to come up out of the sea and whoop you ass.


Unlike DC marvel doesn't seem to shy way from there B list characters. Namor may be on the back burnner but He's still more likly to get made over lets say Aquaman or Captain Marvel.


The most epic crossover Ever!!!

He's currently trying to do this with Scott & Emma on his new team. Namor is a dick, though that's what makes me like him.

That is very true. While Spider-man and Wolverine are their most popular characters, probably with the most titles, there is no doubt that in the grand scheme of Marvel they're pretty much second stringers. Guys like Captain America, Thor, and Iron Man have always been the top dogs even when they haven't enjoyed as much fame. Marvel really doesn't shy away from hyping up obscure characters like Doctor Strange, Daredevil, and the Heroes For Hire team. They seem to treat the movies with equal importance as well. To a non-Marvel fan it must look like they're throwing darts at a board but they're really not. Runaways has as much of a chance of making it to a screen somewhere as, say, Black Panther. Blade, of all properties, lead the way for Marvel comics.

Exactly. Namor the Sub-Mariner is easier to convert to the big screen because 1) He can fly 2) doesn't spend whole lotta time underwater 3) costume is less cheesy by comparison 4) only weird thing about him are those wings on his feet


Get a nice looking guy with ripped muscles and six pack and women will swoon over him at the cinema. Aquaman OTOH has a long way to go to attract female attention imo.

Namor also has a more consistent personality ( arrogant imperious dick ), which is easier to work with re: adaptation possibilities.

I know Aquaman would cost quite a bit to do. You'd basically be doing, for lack of a better term, The Little Mermaid in live action.
