Tenoch Huerta has been popular in the media lately and if you don’t know who he is, we’re here to fill you in! Right now, one of the most popular movies in theatres is Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, which has been a tearful goodbye to Chadwick Boseman, as well as a movie about woman empowerment. Besides these two things, the movie also introduces us to a new character who has caught everyone’s attention and is none other than Namor. If Namor sounds familiar and you’ve been curious about the character playing Namor, your search ends here.
Tenoch Huerta is one of the recent gems that Marvel Studios has hired and he has taken the internet by storm.

He’s everything you need to know about Tenoch Huerta, especially if you’re going to stick around for future Marvel projects, in which he will definitely be appearing.
Tenoch Huerta’s Net Worth
Tenoch Huerta is still making his way through movies, shows, and short films, and so far, he has garnered a net worth of around $5 million, but we know that will increase in the coming years, especially after him now being a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Other than Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, his role in Narcos: Mexico was one of the higher-paid roles that he’s had so far.
Although Huerta’s character, Namor, has only just joined the MCU, the future looks bright for this character, and if we go by the comics at all, there could be a feature movie with just Namor sometime in the future! There’s no doubt that Huerta will be getting several casting calls soon and we can’t wait to see other projects that he appears in.

Tenoch Huerta Biography
José Tenoch Huerta Mejía turned 41 on the 29th of January this year, and we’re just as shocked as you are! Tenoch Huerta was born in Ecatepec de Morelos, State of Mexico, and has been popular in Mexico for a while now, and is now branching out into Hollywood and we have his father to thank for it. While his father didn’t secure him this big role, he does play a huge part in Tenoch’s journey to becoming an actor. Tenoch’s father enrolled him in an acting course, which eventually led to his passion for acting and his understanding that this was his calling! Although Tenoch is of indigenous descent, and as a part of his role in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, he has been thrilled to share more about the indigenous Mexican culture, and he hopes that his role as Namor will help people embrace who they are and where they came from. If you didn’t love him already, we’re certain you do now!
Tenoch made his acting debut in 2006 with a minor role in a Mexican movie. In 2015, he appeared in the movie The 33, and it wasn’t until 2018 that Tenoch made his Netflix debut with Narcos: Mexico. He has also been nominated as Best Actor at the Short Film Festival in Mexico City and the Ariel Awards, which give recognition to the best of Mexican Cinema. Tenoch has now entered into the bigger league movies and as of now we are unsure of his upcoming projects, but he is likely to make an appearance in Phase 5 of the MCU, possibly as a villain to some, and an ally to others. We are definitely rooting to see him in Thunderbolts!

Now that Tenoch is under the spotlight, the one thing he will have to get used to is the array of dating rumors and fans being curious about his love life, but we’re sure he knows what he signed up for! Tenoch Huerta is a good-looking man with wit, charm, respect, and someone who appreciates his culture, it’s no wonder fans want to know whom he is dating. As far as his social media goes, one can easily identify the fact that Tenoch values his privacy above everything else, and based on what we know, he is currently single.
However, Tenoch has given a very small glimpse into his life, and he is reported to be a single father of two children, and right now, those are the only loves of his life, which is true love in its purest form. Any information about past relationships or marriages hasn’t been disclosed yet, and if the actor truly wants to protect his privacy, we would never stand in the way of that!
While Black Panther: Wakanda Forever had several memorable moments and characters, Tenoch’s characterization of Namor stood out and stole everyone’s hearts. Namor is the first indigenous character in the MCU and Tenoch has surely set an example for the fans, and hopefully, this is only the beginning.
