My only real problem with the film was James Wan's direction. I thought it was a bit messy, especially in the film's final action scene. I have read some comments about the similarities between the character of Arthur Curry aka Aquaman and characters like King T’Challa aka Black Panther and Thor. Yet, no one, as far as I know, had brought up the following contrast. In “Thor” and “Black Panther”, the two protagonists are insiders and part of their worlds’ status quo. But in “Aquaman”, the protagonist is an outsider. In fact, he is blatantly labeled as a half-breed. I just find it odd that Aquaman has more in common with two MCU villains - Erik Stevens aka Killmonger and Loki - than he does with Black Panther and Thor.
